Just to help panther find/move them once the new forum is established and to demonstrate to 'goon that we're not expecting the mods to do all the work in getting this thing going.
Sadly enough changing the title of the first thread won't chnage the thread title. I don't know exactly how the threads are set up. I hope they can all be changed. It should help searching however.

Okay Marty, I put a post-it up on my monitor to remind me this weekend (I'm home today).

What ever happened to those ABS parts?
You gave me such short notice on a Sunday, that I couldn't come that day. I had to go back up north to work...

Hey Marty, I'm still holding it for you.. I could mail it if you really want it. Message me your address.

Does anyone have a 4ws front steering rack in good condition they want to sell? Mine is finally wearing out at 370,000 miles.

You can send me a PM, and I'll get back to you on the weekends (can't get on here at work).

I say bring on a 4WS subforum. It'd be all of what, two clicks of the mouse for the administrator to generate such a subforum? Sheesh.

The Mazda 4WS system *eats* all the other 4WS systems other manufacturers have tried over the years (anyone ever heard what happens when sharp cornering in an early 4WS Prelude? *giggle) but due to its complexity can become a nightmare for the uninitiated...

That said I've got issues... error code thirteen... it only gets disgruntled if the car is stopped and in neutral (for instance at a drive thru) but if you hold the clutch down, it could care less. Strange indeed, and very annoying, nothing worse than goin to leave somewhere and having the 4WS light come on and the car switch to 2WS mode. Sucks!

Would be nice to go into a subforum where such an issue has already been discussed and a fix suggested.

If I gave my MX6 as much attention as I gave my Fiero, I'd be around here far more often!

I too very much wish there was a 4ws forum. I just joined only a few days ago, and I was actually very surprised that there was NOT a 4ws sub forum.

I have a few questions regarding proper care and maintenance, and it seems there is no proper place to ask them...

That said, I voted YES.

Here they are. I like the looks of new parts. I think this is correct- 4 pics of rear and 2 of the front.

GAVIN!!!
Please get into the 4WS thread and tell allmazda to hang on until I can get home
tonight?
I cannot communicate on MX6 through the firewall at work. I have just seen his
pictures because the links came through. If he's offering that front rack for
sale, Hell yes I want it!!!
Its possible that she may want them

Okay, I'm home today, and I'm on my own computer. I could see the pictures because of the links, but the stupid firewall system has decided that MX6 is not a site that the Navy wants to communicate with. I used Tom as a communications link a couple of times.

THANK YOU GAVIN!! I was going nuts trying to get this done. It's not like I can trip on down to Autozone and get something like this.

ALLMAZDA, lets start talking money. Here comes a PM

I don't have 4 wheel steering. However, I personally would find it interesting to have a 4WS forum, if nothing else, for the sake of learning more about cars.

That's my 2 cents.

Yeah same here I have a GT but I dont think it has 4ws or abs if we had a forum At least I can learn about it. I'm pretty sure I dont have 4ws because i didnt see anything that would steer the back wheels when i was under the car. and i cant check the abs cuz The cars not running yet.

I voted yes!

Oh I know that all to well My friend had had a '90 4WS Prelude. When he got the thing he didn't know whole steering system was worn out. Along with the hoses and compression rings(damn that B21A1 cylinder sleeves). Had me test drive it to find out what was up, quick test drive and getting underneeth the car quickly shown a system that was never maintained. Best price I could find for getting all the necessary parts was $2100

Now for a controbution to the topic. If there is a 4WS system made, i'll see what I could do about getting the alldata info on the system to help people with things like torque specs.
