Well folks, I heard alot of hype about the pedders suspension lately, with the most interesting (to me) part being the bump steer bushing.

To fill you in a little about my car and myself, I had lowering springs originally on my car and drove 70 miles a day, 6 days a week. I absolutely hated the steering wheel play that was going on all the time. That is the only reason why I switched to a UAS airbag suspension.

Well I had my airbag suspension on for over 2 years, and I didnt have that much movement in the steering wheel, so I have been happy. Well, as some of you know, I have taken a few things off of my car to make it more of a daily driver.

So, I have changed the front struts with kyb and have put the eibach prokit springs on it. I really didnt want to get rid of the airbags, but for personal reasons, it was the right thing to do. Man, was I going to dread getting the shaking steering wheel thing going again. That is when I stumbled across a few threads about this bushing. So I figured, what the hey, might as well give it a try. I will gladly pay 80 bucks to get rid of that problem.

Well, today was the first time that I have driven the car without airbag suspension. I have been anxious to see how it drives. Well, in one word....AMAZING! Now I know a few of you probably have doubts, and that is fine, but ill tell you, it seems great having a perfect riding car. Especially when I was expecting it to ride like sh!t. I drove the car probably 130 miles today on all types of pavement. Steering feels solid and no shakes. What even impressed me is that when I hit the brakes hard, it dampens the shakes to almost nothing (my brakes have taken a beating and I am sure are warped and whatnot. Every time I stop hard the whole car shakes. I know, it is definitely time for new pads/rotors).

I will keep this thread alive, as time will show the real side of things, but I will also post pics up tomorrow to show you the new suspension. This thing is lowwwwww (trimmed a little of the springs off to get the crazy low look).


Thanks Rob !!!
