    just got done with my strut mounts FINALLY!

    MY pedders strut mounts finally arrived and i just installed them today. Took all about an hour and 30 minutes and that included parking and jacking up the car. Now i need to get lowering springs cause it's sitting alot higher now.

    havent got a change to take her out yet. I only have poly bushings on my sway bar end links and the pedders strut mounts. Will i feel a difference with the strut mounts? I am gonna do the radius rod casters soon as seeing they are a major problem for the goats.

    Strut mounts and springs ....you will feel the difference immmediately and yes the RR bushings will improve on that even more. You will be happy with Pedders. Just outstanding customer service.
    I really got tired of hearing the screaming bitches at ls1gto just comparing price....you know the price is so close then when you add Pedders customer support/documentation etc. there is no comparison. Pedders is an outstanding product and equally outstanding company.

    I heard somewhere (maybe this site, I truly don't remember though) that they will only give the lifetime warranty if you have a Pedders Dealer install the parts. Is this true?

    I really don't know about that....but if it were me I would require an authorized dealer for a lifetime warranty....now I installed all my own Pedders stuff.....I will say I have seen people totally screw up their own install and Pedders replaced the part when they probably didn't have to. This is the customer support I am talking about here.

    No, as the Longest PEDDERS dealer in the USA thats not true, What is true is that Your labor and parts are Free as long as a Dealer did the install and the warranty is 2/36k......Frank

    Ok. As far as I know the nearest dealer to me is in Slidell La. Thats a couple of hours away which is why I was asking. I'm very mechanical so installing them myself wouldnt be a problem (hopefully anyway), but I didn't want me doing it myself to kill the warranty.
