    Pedderized

    Well guys - I installed new springs, 3/8 drop in front 1/2 drop in back and urethaned the suspension. All the linkages except the tie ins body/frame. Best investment I've made yet.

    Handling has drastically improved and the braking is unbelievable.
    The OEM springs are a 5 coil. Pedders are 7 coil. Adj radius arms which sets the caster to 8.3, new struts, new shocks, struts mounts and as I said all new urethane. Highly recommend it.

    Sarges instructions for the front end were on target and highly appreciated.
    My rear springs were sagging and the front struts were gone with 37K on the clock so I said the hell it and spent $1,400. Found a kid with a lift and 6 hours later we were done and didn't have to drop the rear end to install those bushing. Handles like she's on rails and stops on a dime...

    Cornering, braking and switching lanes - massive improvements...
    I'm more of a road course type - so I can't speak to launching. I've taken about 200 lbs out of the vehicle, but I'm aiming for cornering and acceleration coming out of corners vs. from a dead stop which has improved as well.
