Ok have 2 questions

1, Ok i have brought an adj panhard Rod because im soon to be lowering my car. I bought a pedders one. now id like to know which way does it need to be installed? refering to the bend/kink in the rod.

2, I was looking around for prices on Lowering my car with pedders stuff. and im come across a Wheel and tyre shop on sydney rd in melbourne(not sure if im allowed to mention the name). They said they could lower my car with pedders springs all round and shocks in rear for 550 fitted. Went home and told my mate (who works in autobarn) about the deal they offered and he tolds me that one of his work mates got ripped off there. apprently they said they was giving him pedders but all they did was cut his springs and paint them red.

As to how much truth is in this I dont know. but how often/likly does this stuff happen. and if you know the shop im talking bout whats your experiences with them. It seems like an offer to good to refuse but if there gonna do that to me id like to stay well away. thanks.

What about the front shocks? I seriously doubt a suspension centre cut somebody's springs and painted them red. If that really did happen then that person would have taken the car straight to a Lawyer along with a mechanic and would have won a major law suit against them.

the bend goes on the exhaust side so it clears the exhaust when lowered

mate pedder are not the BEST brand around.
look in the trading post on this site and you will find lowered springs fairly cheap.

No way dude i paid $118 for rears, $225 for the fronts, $150 pan hard rod, $150 for al springs and this is mates rates.

Steer clear of there mate. The guys at Pedders in Ringwood are excellent

Pedders are not the cheapest around, nor do I consider their shocks suitable for any more than mundane daily driving done by mums taking their kids to school. Check out site sponsor GSL Rallysport for a set of KYB's or similar.

A mate of mine spent nearly $3500 on a full suspension setup there. Rides like airbags,corners flat, sits low and legal everybody who's been in his car praises the setup he has.

Pedders are not bad mad just because you may use something else. No offense meant Reaper
