In for both...\\I assume there are no fitment issues between years? You only have to have one major issue to start asking that question >_>

I don't anticipate any fitment issues between models. As far as I know the stock links are the same regardless of car. If anyone knows otherwise please speak up. I will contact the dealership tomorrow to inquire.

My local Mazda dealer tells me that the front and rear links exchange accross years and models.

I am just waiting on permission from Jeff.

On the rear links I'm going to buy a length of C1018 cold rolled hex bar and drill and tap the ends rather than using tubing with weld in threaded adapters. This alleviates the need for welding in threaded adapters, however drilling and tapping is required. I can do that myself, but I will have to figure it into the cost as it will take several hours of my time. It works out a little cheaper cuz I don't have to pay shipping for parts from the States. I'll do a prototype and post pics. It'll be good.

I should be able to sell a complete set, both fronts and rears, for $115 + shipping. I will make a donation of $5.75 per set to the forum. The only remaining variable is what I will have to pay for shipping on the ends themselves. The distributor in Edmonton doesn't stock the ends I'm using, so they have to be sent from Toronto. If it does affect the price it will only be a couple dollars.

Still taking orders till Friday.

Nope. Once I get official permission to sell them to you I will place the order and send you payment information.

Still got awhiles to go on the car inside and out and engine bay as well. Hopefully I can get this stuff before the snow falls, otherwise it may have to wait til late next spring!

Yes our cars are going to handle like go-carts. On a side note, I purchased what I am told are the last new left and right rear spindles in stock in Canada. I also bought all new factory hardware for the front and the rear control arms. My car is going to be minty underneath.

Post Re: [GI] Rigid Spherical Sway Bar End Links
May I have a suggestion for the next project?

How about an engine damper? I know there will need to be RS and GS styles, but I believe they should be easy enough to make (with your skill) ... {bow hunting skills, computer hacking skills}
Somthing like this anyways:

Cheaper than new engine mounts and waay easy to install.
