I have had the Pedders top hats on for 2 summers worth of driving on the stock struts with no problems. Ride quality is the same as stock with much better turn in. Driving at night, I have hit some scary potholes (using up the wheel travel with a slam) on crappy roads at highway speed. Had camber bolts and the top hats; took the camber bolts out (couldn't get an alignment that would get rid of inner tire wear). Just the top hats and a different alignment shop, car has been golden since.

How much camber were you able to achieve with the pedders mount + camber bolts? What was your camber bolt setup (upper or lower hole and what bolt)? Thanks.

With Pedders and stock subaru camber bolts. I got -2.2 - -2.5. Subaru bolts go in the top hole. Part number 901000394. The nut 902380008. According to subaru, the bolt is reusable, the nut is not.

I take it the Pedders eccentric top mounts don't suffer from the same design flaws as the whiteline ones did?

@Calum So far people haven't posted issues with them. I use it them for two years (incl. few trackdays). Back then prior buying obviously i also had similar fears, as on first glance they looked rebranded WL com-c, on email inquiry they replied:
"3. We designed and manufacture these top hats ourselves.
4. Yes, these have been tested to work with the ZC/ZN chassis. We are familiar with the other offset mounts in the market and their short comings and are confident our mount is superior. Our mount has the bearing installed at an angle to alleviate the side load. Therefore, our mount has much lower striction than the competing mounts in the market."
Most slight "issues" i heard were relating buying, like local availability/shipping times or people mistakenly ordering one mount instead of needed both per vehicle, and waiting even more for another separately ordered to arrive.

That's perfect, Church. Thanks.
