i have pedders superlows all round in the eb and honestly i dont like them they are too hard with the pedders shocks, kings are good but they have gone downhill in there process they just aint what they used to be, if you have the money try priceing up a full tein package. if not try lovells dad has them in the old xb gt and they havent given any headachs.


Apparently the sportsryder shocks and spring package can be hard for the daily driver but when paired with a different shock people seem to be happy...

The comfort gas shock iv bought yes...

An to the previous comment Pedders say there sprigs should sit 610 mm at the back with 600mm at the front.... Iv got the right springs apparently and mine sits at 600mm at the back and 630 mm at the front... Iv checked the part numbers and rang Pedders already

Most of the time springs will sit lower than actually advertised

Call another pedders store to confirm part numbers and height or call there head office...

Pedders have a quality policy and springs are supposed to be very close to what there advertised, so find out that policy and throw it in there face...

I haven't tried the pedders struts or shocks; have used Bilsteins, Koni Yellow, Boge and KYB Excel G. Obviously the first two take the cake and if my car saw the track would fork out again for Bilsteins. For how cheap the KYB's are ($450 for 4 struts for AU IRS I think) they are good for a daily, as are the Boge (which are even cheaper again).

Im currently using Bilstein and have used KYB and Boge and will try Ultima in my parents falcon in the next few weeks

How do the Bilstein and Koni Yellow compare???

Don't even bother with the Ultimas, I had a set in the rear as I was tight on cash at the time, after 6 months they were unable to control the springs, resulting in tramp and a wallowing back end. Just avoid it.

What bilsteins are you looking to compare with the Koni yellows?

now that bilstein was mentioned, dads got bilsteins in the old xe fairmont, they may be old but god when you pay that bit more for them they are well worth it, and the best part about bilstein is they can be rebuilt, i dunno about anybody else rebuilding theres.

I'm using the B6 Bilstein but I think the B7 is comparable to Koni yellow if I'm not mistaken...
