Has anyone fitted the Pedders Sportsryder Performance suspension. Is it worth the $1500? Is there another way to decrease body roll without going for full coilovers by just fitting new springs or without the absorbers will the springs eventually soften up and cause even more roll?

I use & recomend a 30mm front pedders swaybar.
Dont worry about the rear one.
Along with half decent shocks & springs all round.

a new pair of shocks and bushes for the sway bar will make a huge difference

if your looking for a little more, id say springs, shocks, bushes on the bar and a new whiteline sway bar.

the pedders shocks and springs are fairly good, just bloody expensive

hey man i picked up a set from u-pull-it, used of course.

I got the struts 4 pedders springs but rear shockers brought from the store.

it really makes the ride feel like it's glued to the road and basicly no body roll.

i would say its worth it! thats my opinion anyways Goodluck :wink:

My car runs pedders sport ryders all round. I have the whiteline 30mm front sway bar & 24mm rear sway bar. The front shock lowered my car an extra 20-25mm. I also have red polyurathan bushes all round aswell. Very stiff ride & handles like it's on rails.
Coilover shocks are heaps better but heaps more expensive.
