Re: FS: oem Mazdaspeed3 MS3 sway bars and springs

Yep, the front sway bolts right in.

The rear sway requires two spacers to take up the slop between the larger 12mm bolt holes on the sway and the 10mm bolts on the endlinks. For '04 to '06 models, the bushing stops on the rear bar also need to be slid over a little.

Dude, 180 is a bit much but a clean and great set of sways and springs. GL with the sale.

Just to clarify, $180 is for both bars.

will the springs lower a sedan?? and approximately how much, thanks.

Results vary - general consensus is 0.5" all around on a 2.3, perhaps less up front on a 2.0. Definitely a performance upgrade for both.

Definite upgrade to handling. I can assure that.

i will take the rear sway if you know somewhere i can find the spacers...

Sure, that's easy! :p

I have used these: http://www.thelongboardstore.com/bearings/bearing-spacers/10mm-x-10mm-bearing-spacers/ These are inexpensive aluminum spacers, but require some work since the OD is closer to 13mm, so you'll have to turn them down. A lathe would make quick work of it; it was a little slow going for me while filing/sanding with it chucked in my drill press.

Others have used nylon spacers (also slightly oversized) pulled from the parts bin at HD.

For correct size steel spacers, look up cwp_sedan.
