do they fit the front...im pretty sure they do....a few guys have told me so already (they think so at least)



http://racingbeat.com/resultset.asp?PartNumber=14200



racing beat says they wont cause the flange on the control arm part wont fit





anyone have experience with this?

I think the diff is the "flange" on the control arm you put it into is wider apart (longer bolt)



mazdatrix sells them for S5. they just give you some washers with it.

eeehhh...thats not worth the trouble for a few washers









so the next problem is







A: the stock endlinks have the bolt IN IT that connect to the front sway bar...so now i need a new bolt to go through it all and attach to the nut





B: THE REAR IS ******* RETARDED I DONT KNOW WHY MAZDA MADE IT SO NO ONE CAN GET THEIR ******* HANDS IN THERE IM GONNA SHOOT THEM I HATE THEM CAR BOOM!!!!

I'm not sure if u need a longer bolt or not... i've never really looked at it. But if you get a new bolt make sure it is the highest grade stainless steel bolt you can buy.

well if you take them off...on the front:



theres the endlink.. where it attaches to the brake part its just a hole on the endlink and a bolt and nut and washer hold that on....but the part to the swaybar, its got a bolt built into it, the part that squishes around to adjust itself...



so i gotta replace that bolt so it can actually attach ya know







and for the rear...well its impossible to get it out..i dunno how im gonna do that....but both parts are like the built in bolt...so i gotta get new ones for the rear too



im just gonna buy 8 new bolts, washers, and nuts....fresh stuff for underneath
