Not 100% again.....
4WS A/C controls are push button was standard. I think the push button was an option on GT's as most Ive seen are slide control.

I have push button on my gt, but its so old that the buttons that change it from head to feet don't stay down. The air still blows but I have no idea where it blows.

Also, as I found out today, the 4ws has different rotors and wheel bearings in the rear. The wheel bearing itself is larger in diameter, while the rotor isd the same size, it just has a larger center hole to accomodate the larger wheel bearing.

And since the bearing has a larger diameter, the spindle on the rear of the 4ws is larger than its 2ws counterpart.

Interesting, the rear wheel bearing and spindle on a GV wagon is also bigger. Probably the same size.

i was really hoping that front lower tie bar would bolt up on one of my probes, or 626gt. sadly the holes are not there for it ont hem. but just from holding it up, all you would have to do is drill some holes, but dont think it would really be needed. who knows. maybe one day ill use it for something.
Sell it to me! Mine you can tell was chopped off. The ends are there bolted into the car, but the whole center section has been cut out (And the 4ws at the junkyard dint have it either)

I have twice replaced the rear calipers on the 4ws cars i have owned. Once on defilers 4ws car and recently on my 626 4ws. Yes they are different. I am not sure why or how. I did get a set of loaded rear calipers for only 150 for both. Funny thing is that the core was 20 more per caliper. GOod thing i only paid for them once (on defiler's car) so mine were free this time around.

How can i help you wibla? I wish i could steal your car......what pait color is that?

its 5A, stock mazda colour actually. I thought it had been white at one point, then painted blue, but it appears it wasnt. Must be a special order, or something else..

I checked the prices today, $430 per caliper for regular calipers, $390 per caliper for 4ws ones.. this was at a Mekonomen store in norway, not a mazda dealership. gonna check that tomorrow

it would probably be cheaper if you buy one from the states and ship it over there

That won't be a problem

We're gonna examine the current calipers and do a rebuild to get it past inspection.

I'm considering putting on some stock springs for the next 7-8 months, inspection coming up, and I cant get the aftermarket springs written into the pink slip because of new rules (fucking communist country...)
