    PEDDERS (the brand, not the service centre)

    Hi All,

    Last week at the abenteuer und allrad messe I met some australian bloke from a company called: pedders. It seems they are quite big over there and they are trying to get into the european market it seems. Now, the guy was very helpfull in finding longer than stock shocks for my P38 with arnott's. For the rear he had a LT (long travel) shock, 40mm with foam cell) but for the front he had to dig around. Apparently these are shock normally mounted on a landcruiser

    Now, my question to you guys is: how are those pedders shocks in terms of quality? I have been looking over the terrafirma adjustables for quite some time but I can't shake the feeling that they are not up to the job of traveling over corrugated roads for prolonged periods of time. The larger bore of the pedders shocks at 40mm would suggest to me a much larger oil capacity and surface area for cooling under such circumstances.

    Thanks!

    On a normal car I have had no probs with Pedders, they have been a known name here. It disturbs me to hear of the expansion thing you mention. That suggests to me that they are going the way of all the big names that used to be famous here, like Sidchrome. I hope that I'm wrong.

    Probably comparable to terriblefirma shocks. Not commonly used here on cars that go offroad. But fine for cars that never leave the bitumen
