To make a US spec 4WS you will need a new front steerin rack with output for 4ws, front to rear steering linkage, rear steering rack, new rear suspension frame, electrics and hydraulics to make it work. Certainly not worth it. The rear rack alone would cost about $2000USD to buy new from mazda, let alone all the other hardware. You may be able to find all the parts 2nd hand, but as to wether it will work or not , who knows.
well, then the next step would be...how would i find one? are they all right drive? are they available in the US or do i have to get one shipped over? Cause right now i have more money invested in my 93 then is really worth it, and it is an automatic to boot. Since my tranny is starting to go(along with other things at over 100,000), i had considered doing a manual swap, but my car also is lacking antilock brakes, so i came to the conclusion it would be cheaper to buy another used mx-6 with what i want, and then just swap out my klze and bolt-ons to that car and have a all the core parts i'd ever need!...so now that i know about this i might as well go all out and find a 4ws as well...shame they don't make awd...so any help on where to start looking would be great!!
I Live in New Zealand and own a 4WS, most of the models here are 4WS. In Fact I havent seen a 2WS. The models here are known as Jap imports as they are pre-owned in Japan. And yep they drive really well, can turn on a dime and very little body roll when cornering fast.
