Forgot to mention in my earlier post the quote i got from Pedders earlier this year. For super low springs all round, shocks and camber/castor kit it came to $950. They said that was trade!!! I bought all that but in Dobinson, Monroe and Noltec for just over $600. The spring compressor cost $16 and the wheel alignment was $50. Took me around 3 hrs to fit it all and must say alot cheaper than $1350. Buy the stuff from elswhere and get a mate to help you fit it. With the approx $500 saving you can get a new HU!!!

I am going to say the opposite of most here and say i love pedders suspension. I did the same as you shocks, springs ext and have had it on the car for over 12 months now and have had no probs with them at all. They handle well and would never change.

my uncle owns a couple of pedders shops. in canberra

i asked about the springs, they are def not repainted kings.

pedders shocks used to be made in the munroe factory but they have different valving in them so not really munroe. they arnt made in the munroe fact any more though

Ride: eb 's' and '67 xr fairmont

Location: Sunbury
VIC, Australia

ive had pedders in my eb for about 3 years, i put in springs and shocks all round wiyh the lowered platform strut and camber kit. i paid about 700 ish and am really happy with them. it depends on what you want it for. i believe pedders are a better ride than kings but wont handle quite as well. thats my 2 cents worh,
