When installing an OEM MS3 front sway into a regular Mz3 hatch, would I use the bushings that are already on the Speed's sways or take the bushings off my Mz3's and put them onto the new sways? The MZ3's seem too large and the speed's seem too small....

Re-use the MZ3 bushings, it will have a little bit of space, someone here has mentioned that you need a spacer to slide in between, I did not have that issue and everything seemed fine.

Just have to find something to wrap around the sway bar to close the gap.

Hopefully another member will post about the spacer.

are you sure that you are not thinking of the rear bar? The rear bar was the one that needed spacers to fit in the endlink holes...

Yeah I think your right, my bad.

I do not recall having any issues with the front then.

I painted my MS3 sways bright yellow and then put them on, I did not use any spacers for the front.

I stand corrected.

did your front bar come with it's own brackets, (we've been trying to re-use the the mz3 front brackets)? When I got the sways, only the rear had it's own brackets.....

I re-used the ones off my MZ3, a friend of mine sold me his MS3 sways and we did both in just over 1 hour, he had done 3 sets and was going for a time record HAHA!!
