OK...So I ordered the Prothane "Total Kit" from eShocks.

The Kit arrived the other day and contains:



1. Front control arm bushings

2. Rear trailing arm bushings

3. Front and rear Sway bar bushings

4. tie rod boots

5. An enmroidered Prothane baseball cap (wee. )



now, this is all super and duper....but I'm having a hell of a time finding some other bushings.



There is a control link between the front control arm and the sway bar....it has two bushings that need replacing.



There are also, if I recall...10 other small bushings in the rear (trailing arm) that are in need of replacement.



I can't seem to find anyone who makes these parts, and I sure as hell don't want to go to a Mazda dealer to pay $800 a piece for OEM.



any suggestions or help?

I'd try victoria british or mazdatrix (both .com). They're both a bit pricey, but maybe better than straight from mazda.

Have you also considered the anti-sway bar links?



available from Mazdatrix

I've got the victoria british catalog....Guess I'll call them.



I'm on a REALLY tight budget, though and I still need to get a halfshaft.....so negative on the swaybar links, although they look good...

Are you talking about the end link bushings (up front)? ES makes them and they are pretty cheap.
