pedders suspension

Has Anyone Out There Purchased -had Installed The Track Ii Package? Just About To Order One From Vengeance Racing Near Atlanta. I Have Researched This Package On The Net, And It Seems Top Notch, But I Would Appreaciate Any Input On The Daily-weekend Drivability. As My Car Is A Weekend Driver Mostly, 05- M6, This Seems A Good Investment Since The Car Also Has 83,000 Miles On The Clock. Input Appreaciated, Bill

I put the Street II kit on my 06-M6 at 13,000. It drove like a completely different car, in a good way.

With over 80k, you'll love it. The Street II was noticeably firmer but not a killer when going over bumps/cracks in the highway. I think with the track kit, things firm up a bit more, but if you're looking to feel connected to the road, you'll definitely find it.

Any upgrade from just about any good brand (Pedders, Lovells, SuperPro, Koni, Energy, King) is going to be an improvement. IMHO it's not that hard to install the stuff yourself. I've done every bushing, shock, spring, sway bar on my car in my garage on my back

The install was about $650 at a local wheel/tire shop. I didn't have an official Pedders guy near enough so I just mail ordered the kit.

That sounds reasonable, Willy; thanks.
From what I've read, Svede, it's fairly involved for an untalented wrencher like me.

I'm Not An Experinced Wrencher Either, And I'm 51 Yrs Young, So The Whole Package Including Alignment For Track Ii Was 3200 Usd. Vengeance Racing In Cumming, Ga Has A Good Reputation So I Went With Them. Also, Parts Avalibility Seems An Issue, So I Called Pedders Usa And They Also Said 3 -5 Weeks On Parts. Hope It's As Good As They Say.

I had never done any suspension work other than changing shocks in the past and honestly it wasn't that hard. It did require some hand tools like wrenches and stuff but I got to have a lot more done than a partial package for a LOT less. I spent $2,400 but got all bushings, shocks, struts, sway bars, end links and even a Harrop cover for the diff. It's really hard when you don't even try.
