Getting into an old topic.

Anybody tried this set for his mx3?


Shouldn't be any different then on my 323... The arm's are built to the same length... My 323's suspension is all Mx3 parts...

Not sure if anyone else has bought and been running them though.. I have had 2 complete years driving on my set.. Both daily driving and autocross... no signs of wear or failures yet...

You will like them.. did you get Jim to add a tab for the sway bar? I am not sure if he does that automatically because the arms were originally designed for rally cars.. it look at my build thread and that you will see how to make your own end links to attach the sway bar since the stock end links done work

I made a set of endlinks a looong time ago but ill need to make a new pair. The ones i have a made out of cheap hiem joints. I was told they might not last long. Yeah i remembered the tab for the sway bar. I almost forgot to tell him too lol. I cant wait to get them. He said they take 2 weeks because he has to get the parts from like all over the place. Im in no hurry as I wont put them on until my new sway bars arrive which will be a month or so.

Do a little right up when you install them, I'm sure it's pretty cut and dry but it would be interesting to have your perspective.

Hey crazycanadian, did you paint or powder coat the "bushings" for the arms I know ill have to do the arms. Because my bushings are just bare steel. Have you ran these bars through a winter or is your car a summer only?

I took the hiem joints out painted eeverything in bed liner... i ran the arms threw 1 winter..One thing i would do is make rubber bushings to go between the washers and he I'm joints. This will help keep stuff out of them

ok thank you. Jim just had the bushing company send them to me directly and he said he would try and find a picture of how they go. He couldnt tell me as he said he hasnt personally assembled a set in 5 years *cough *cough bullsh*t but hey whatever. I told him it was cool because i knew you had a set and i could ask you....
