Good luck getting any pictures out of speedster. Apparently you needs super triple platinum code clearance from NRE to see even a thumbnail image of any part of that car. :mad0260:

So Chris and Company will be turning the nuts on the front endlink by hand and won't read about the fast and easy way until they are done? :sm0: :D :popcorn:

Good point. Please email them to PGB@PeddersUSA.com marked CONFIDENTIAL. They will stay that way.

It just didn't transfer to characters well... Maybe if one character was under a car and the other one was playing with the jack... orrr if they were doing a 3 stooges bit :laugh: (Hey, I should be talking. I don't even know how to do it. )

Stronger aftermarket cars would do more damage more quickly. The OE endlink boss is fine for OE bars. Our endlinks have a large boss or face to distribute load across the mild steel tab in the arm. You can see it clearly in these photos as well as how thick the washers are.

When we modify our Camaros, when we make one piece stronger, everything else in the system becomes comparatively weaker. We try very hard to maintain that balance. It is why our bars are sold with endlinks. Stronger bar, stronger ball joints and larger mounting surface to more evenly distribute the load.

When you replace you arm, you should remove the other endlink and verify the hole is round and the tab has not been deformed. We want trouble free travel to the Fest!

Ok. I'll check the other one. I"m thinking I better pick up some end links. Hopefully not another arm as well. I've never had the other come loose so I may be fine there.

Front sway bar.................. :bellyroll:

That's the story of my modding experience on this car. I could cut the time in half easily to do them again.

The metal part on the arm where my sway bar end link hooks to has tore off. :mad0259: Not sure why, but am I gonna have to buy a whole new arm?

And how much is a new arm? What do you want for that one, and can I drive the car while I wait?

We lifted the engine to get it in there...

LOL...I know that feeling.

I was lucky...I had a team helping me out. We had coils, stainless brake lines, front sway bar, and rear sway bar done in 1.5 hours. Still need to get the radius and subframes done. But, shouldn't be that long. Now...leeettts see how long it takes to take them back off your car....


and install them on mine


:D

just finished... the car looks great.. I'm done... got a couple small items to tidy up... that locking nut on the top of the coil is a beast to get back on... I need to run it on and off the old coil to loosen it up..

Car looks frackin awesome... cant really take a pic right now.

Got some good video of the rear but we were too pushed for time to video to the front...

:D

I now have pedders dual adjustable supercar coilovers, sway bars, adjustable end links and some inserts on my car... :D :thumbsup:

time for bed...

:D
