One of these (the o/s one) has bust completely and the other one wasn't far behind.
I have removed both the roll bar and the remains of the links from the car while I source replacements.
However, when showing the remains to one of my neighbours he commented it looked virtually identical to the link removed from the spares XR2 we broke up last Sunday.
Would I be correct in thinking this is a part common to many cars and thus available cheaply from motor factors, or will I have to bite the bullet and pay silly Mazda/Ford OEM prices for the replacements?
Also - rear tracking. The Haynes book says that this can be adjusted by turning cams in the inboard ends of the rear MacPherson struts. However, it gives no info on how the cams should be turned, so does anyone here know? I am toying with the idea of building a home made tracking aligner similar to a Trakite and using this on both front and rear tracking.

Forgiven - maybe
Forgotten - not likely
