We are ready for suspension upgrades!!

Pedders has more experience on the ZETA platform than all other companies combined. We alread have a complete line of bushings, sway bars, springs, and dampers for the Camaro. WE ARE READY!!! GM Racing contracted with us to help them build their GM racing Camaro that will be built by Riley Technologies.

We will also have the best, technological adjustable coil over ever for the Camaro. It will be a 30 way Mono Tube coil over, with multiple coils available, and the heigh will be adjustable, and will not affect the spring rates. The pricing will be killer.

We will be looking for Camaros accross the USA to do our EXTREME kits on. So keep this in mind,

Here is a link for the new coil overs:

Me too.... this is the very first mod I'll do to my SS. I plan to order an 2011 (for financial reasons and HUD, gears, etc.) and one of the top of the line Pedders systems will be installed on my SS shortly after delivery.

I AM JUST A PHONE CALL AWAY!!.

All of you will find that the Pedders USA organization will be extremely active and supportive to the Camaro community; more than all other suspension manufacturers comebined!. These are big words and and say them proudly!. This is one of the reasons GM Racing uses us, because of our superior support and being there when they need us!!

I cannot tell you how excited I am about the Camaro!!

The Camaro Track eXtreme kit looks awesome.

Camaro Track eXtreme
If I do upgrade my suspension, that's the kit i'd want.
$4580.99 is a good bit of change though.

Mike, I've got a somewhat stupid question...

Do the prices on the site include installation? If not; about how much would you expect installation costs to run?

I doubt these prices include installation. However, this is a great question that I'm very interested in. I know you can't be exact, but an estimate for an install would be greatly appreciated.

With all the bushes, coils, dampers, front and rear sway bar, strut tower brace, you are looking at 12 hours of billable labor

The drop will be in the 1.2 inch range


Some of the bushes will require using a hydraulic press and may take 10-12 tons to press in and out. Most, however, you will be able to use a universal balljoint press, with some custom made fixtures that we have

Caster we will add aprox 1.5 degrees positive caster with our 5421 caster shim. This is a big deal in terms of handling improvement.

We can normally set up the rear cambers to the -1.5 area and the front cambers to -1.0 with no tire wear issues. Do not do this with OEM bushes, shocks and dampers!!

when you eliminate the and control the suspension system like our systems, you can really go to the edge if you will on the angles

I like those XA coilovers. Too bad GM don't have a LPO code for those

Have they, or are they going to bring your parts to the ring just for kicks-n-giggles? I'd like to see that!

It is interesting you bring up "the ring". We did a joint project with Arrington Engines, which is the premier engine builder for the Dodge product line. they build all the NASCAR engines for Dodge cars and trucks, and now will be building the toyota Truck motors. They are the #1 R&D facility for engines for Chrysler. Anyways, they built a new SRT8 that is going to be tested at the Ring. It is a big block hemi,a that will be putting down over 700hp normally asparated, and running on E085 fuels. And of coarse, it has our Pedders TrackII. I forgot what magazine it will be in. But a fun project.

Definately - I need to upgrade suspension before I bring the car to Callaway.

Will the Track II be still streetable - I want to be able to drive the car on Boston city streets and not make my fillings loose.
