how much does it help the handling? also does it affect the ride height, since they are adjustable, just wondering, because I dont know too much about them...

The ones shown are adjusted for the front swaybar, but can be readjusted to fit the rear.

The handling improvement is minmal in most circumstances. These endlinks have approximately a 15* angle of rotation. The stock endlink has about a 30* angle of rotation. This means that the sway bar will react slightly faster, however unless your autocrossing you probably won't notice the difference.

The endlinks are also adjustable, meaning that you could preload your swaybar, that is increase the length of one or both sides. This would create a constant force on the bar, meaning it could again react faster, but when preloading the bar, you will increase the cars tendancy to oversteer or understeer. I don't recommend adjusting these to non-stock length unless you know what your doing

The main benifits to these links are threefold

1. The design allows for easier installestion and removal then the stock endlinks. (many people have to cut the stock endlinks off because the allen key has a tendency to strip)
2. Stronger then stock endlinks. Upgraded swaybars will wear heavily on the stock endlinks. These endlinks are completly stainless steel and can hold the extra force exerted by the larger swaybars
3. Price. These endlinks are much cheaper then stock, in fact a set of two is only slightly more then one Mazda replacement.

The handling improvements would be fourth on my list of benifits

Also these will not affect ride height

so just curious if there would still be some interest in these. I've sold the six and moved onto a toyota celica alltrac (thing is badass) but I was going to make up some new links for the trac and figured I see if any six guys wanted some too

if theres interest I'll renew my sponsorship here and can have parts ready to ship in under a month

well they used to be 47 shipped a set. My suppliers costs have gone up and I haven't run the math yet but I figure it will probably be 50-55 shipped for a pair (front or rear) and 90-95 shipped for all four corners. Sorry I don't have any sets lying around.

As to the stripped allens I feel you on that. I ended up torching the stock links off my six. Pain in the ass. When I saw the alltrac had almost identical endlinks I decided they were getting replaced asap.

CRAZY! I've been online for a while now today looking online for new endlinks, i'm highly interested in buying a set for the rear, possibly the front. Let me know how much it is for a set shipped to 99824 (Alaska). Thanks man.

yes you can make your own. Its fairly easy. Whats tough to do is beat my prices on stainless hardware. You buy in bulk you save big. Every single peice of my links is stainless, I could make and sell mild steel links for half the price. I made that mistake on my own car. It was all of 3 months before they were squeaking like crazy.

Edit: I don't even see the correct size rod end on summit in stainless with Teflon lining? Closest I see is mild steal metal to metal race.

You know I have always found it funny you try to knock anyone trying to make buck unless it is you. I hope you never complain in the future if someone is giving you some crap.

Been there and done that............
