Hi!

First post but long time lurker here! I have recently purchased a 2017 Mazda 3 Sedan fully loaded in Machine Grey Metallic. I have ordered Eibach Springs and a Progress RSB, I understand I should also look at upgrading the rear end links. I was looking at the Hardrace website but they show two options for the end links with different adjustable lengths, which ones would I order?

Thanks much!

  • Range: 280-319 mm Ball stud: M10 2 PCS/SET

These are the ones I used -

comes as a kit with 3 different size adjustment shafts



+1 for the ebay endlinks. Fast shipping too. I am about to install Progress RSB too.
Awesome! Thanks very much for your quick info, I have ordered the same end links and will post pictures once everything is installed.

Sorry OP, did'nt want to steal your thread... Did you order a kit? Which one??
Thank you...
I am currently installing my JBR rsb and will eventually upgrade the stock links (wich are pretty weak!).

Just bought the set of adjustable ones. Now I wish I could just figure out the correct tools to install my RSB it put me over the top last time I tried doing it.

I didn't take the chance personally and went to my mechanic friend who works in a Subaru dealer... Took 2 hours to install the rear sway bar and front sway bar bushings (i kept the stock fsb). I can't figure out how i could have done this in my driveway since you need to disconnect the rear subframe! Happy i went to a garage...

you don't have to, but it's a pain in the ass to try and get the sway bar out. i did it myself but some nuts were hard to get out and now i'll need to get a proper shop to touch it up.
