Pedders has played a prominent role in the Australian automotive aftermarket industry since 1950. In the summer of 2006 Pedders USA became a reality by selling specialised parts to automotive wholesalers and specialist workshops throughout the U.S. By 2010 Pedders USA had established industry partnerships with GM (General Motors), Lingenfelter, Richard Petty and Saleen. Pedders has been featured on TV with West Coast Customs and in magazines such as Supercar builder.
For each new chassis Pedders USA develops an integrated and engineered suspension solution. There is no fixed formula. Its not an exact science. Our people identify the weaknesses in the OE suspension and develop Pedders components to correct them. We think like OE engineers, but without interference from sales, marketing and finance. We manufacture our Pedders parts to suit the automotive enthusiast.
We started in the USA with the fastest wide-body GTO on a road course. Next the fastest Chrysler 300C. Then Pedders USA's G8 and 5th Generation Camaro. When we moved to Ford, the results with the Saleen Mustang were the same. Our 'supercars' are developmental vehicles with purpose. We upgrade everything to make certain that we are testing at or above the levels of performance our customers will reach. We document every step of our development in enthusiast forums so they can benefit from our hard work.
Ride quality is subjective. Our test cars serve as daily drivers. As we do our R & D work in AU and in the USA, the goal is to achieve a Pedders feel: the ideal balance between civility and performance handling.
Pedders USA does not build parts for race cars. We make parts for the enthusiast driver that just happen to do extremely well on the race course. A fully Pedderised vehicle feels like a factory hot rod. It is quiet. It is comfortable. It handles. Our HHR SS Camaro on factory wheels and tires holds a steady .98 Gs on the skid pad. Pedderised the GTO, 300C, Charger, Challenger, Magnum, G8, Camaro and Mustang all pull more than 1.1 Gs on the skid pad while delivering high quality ride. That is the Pedders USA difference. We make bits that you will enjoy when you are behind the wheel.
When we think about Pedders USA, we think about our people. We know we are not making bits for cars. We are making bits for people that are passionate about their car. We make them for you. Everything we do is driven by you!
