I am considering this same package. Did you end up installing it? If so, how did you like it? I have found nothing but great claims...like .83g stock to .94-.96 with the package.

Anyone with Street II? Please chime in!

I did the Street 2 Package, with zero drop.

Highly recommend it.
It made a huge difference in the car's ride, whether straight line, or cornering.
Much less nose lift/dive under throttle/braking. When you get alignment done afterwards, ask for at least -0.5 degrees of front camber.... really improves turn-in.


I don't have logger data on performance... just seat of the pants data from Autocross. It was like driving 2 completely different cars (before/after).


Be prepared for more driveline noise... the differential clunking noises got quite a bit louder with the more solid rear subframe bushings.

Did you guys install this yourself, or pay to have it installed? If so, how much to have it installed?

I have a mongrel suspension with Super Pro, Lovells, Koni, Pedders, Energy, Hotchkis and Harrop. I shopped and waited for the best deals. It made a huge difference and I did absolutely everything on the car for a lot less. I also did it all on my back on the garage floor and some things had to get figured out but I didn't consider it a huge deal just time consuming. It doesn't have to be done all at the same time so you can take your time.

I had it installed via my local dealer which has the "cradle alignment" tools, and has technicians who've worked on dozens of GTOs. I don't mind working on the car -- but this was above my skill level.

I purchased the kit of parts from Pedders... and I think it was about $850 installation from the dealer, including the 4 wheel alignment.

The front "alignment tool" can be made fairly easily. It's just a pointer and the skill level for bushings is pretty low.

The Pedders Street II is an awesome kit for aggressive street. the 20mm drop coils are my favorite coils for sure.
