Default Pfadt Johnny O'Connell Shocks and Sway bar review

Just wanted to say a big thank you to the guys at Pfadt for great product , work and prices.

I installed the Johnny O'Connell Shocks and Sway bar last week it a very easy to do as soon as I drove the car for an hour or so I felt the diffrence on the car from the old setup I had
( Bilstein Sport Shocks + Hotchkis Sway Bar )

The car feels stiff now but not as much as before it was very stiff before you can feel any bump in your neck .
Car handels great in turns and looks great too...

I only have one regret I wish I went with Pfadt Coilovers
Maybe soon..

Again huge thanks to everyone at Pfadt


Some crappy pics I took
