PFDAT or Eibach?

What does everyone think? I'm either getting the eibach springs and sways, or the PFDAT springs and sways. Which is better?

Without a doubt, PFADT. Eibach makes a good lowering spring but Pfadt springs not only lower your car but are designed to optimize handling, ride quality, and longevity. If you can swing a little extra dough its definitely worth it.

Eibach springs and sways always tried and true (and not as expensive).

Pfadt FTW - also consider changing the endlinks at the same time. I first did the Pfadt Sport Sway Bars back in January (immediately felt the difference, the Camaro is on rails in curves) and should've upgraded the endlinks then though Pfadt's were just coming to market. I just installed Pfadt coilovers, trailing arms, control arm stiffeners/bushings and the endlinks - http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=97961

Pfadt earned my business from Aaron's pms/emails with me on my questions - you can pm him with questions to Aaron Pfadt

agreed, if you upgrade sway bars you have to upgrade the end links, we won't sell a sway bar with out upgraded links for the Camaro
