All their previous line will be available (they had the Camaro Featherlights and Johnny O'Connell Corvette components on display). Can't wait. They make some of the best quality/functioning suspension components I have come across.
With them bringing their full line back, I wonder what that does for the plans/patents Apex bought and are currently selling.

I know that feeling. I was wanting them also, and then they were gone.

I wish them the best and hope everyone they dealt with gets squared away. Love their products! Thanks to them and CFFestII, I have been hooked on road tracks ever since! Maybe that was a bad thing... Certainly costs a lot of money, but the thrill per dollar is worth it.

Great, I have a set of the last Spherical radius bushing and I took them off for track duty only and am now using Z28 front arms in place. The second they come back I am ordering tons of Spherical radius bushings just in case.

Same here, I was hooked on the road course after Phoenix.

A lot more went on then everyone realizes. Looks like Pfadt is banned in the CorvetteForum. Wonder if the same went on here?

Wow! I read the whole thing. Let me summarize... Lots of folks disappointed with Pfadt and a few supporting them. Complaints about forum censorship covering for Pfadt. Some of the same things we see here on Camaro5.

If you don't bother reading the whole thread you should at least read this post from one of the CorvetteForum admins... http://www.corvetteforum.com/forums/...post1588237367 ... very enlightening.

Has anyone on the camaros had similar issues? I have only heard a few instances about the featherlights leaking which happens, but this sounds like they happen all the time, and I don't think I have heard of a major issues with their sways on camaros.

I've been on their lowering springs and ZL-spec sways for a couple of years. My only complaints are...
  • The spherical joints on the front sway bar end links got noisy (clunking) after about a year. I replaced them with much nicer links from Detroit Speed.
  • Both front and rear sway bar bushings are hard to keep quiet (creaking). Lubing via the zerk fittings doesn't get the lube all the way around the bars. I have to take the bushings off from time to time to lube them manually.
Otherwise been happy with them.
