MX-5 vs RX-8 front control arms

Postby ronbauer » Thu Sep 08, 2011 2:48 pm

Anyone know whether the front lower control arms use the same sized bushings? I see that Mazda Motorsports has an offset bushing for the RX-8 to be able to get more camber. Would like to use on my DP car, but they're spendy, so I don't want to order until I know they'll fit.

Apparently all i needed was a little research. As it turns out, the part number for the stock bushing is the same on the 2009 cars, so the offset bushings should work with no problems. According to Mazda Motorsports, it's good for about 0.6 degrees of extra negative camber.

So to clarify, the offset bushing will work as a direct-fit replacement on 2009+ MX-5's only, or only FROM a 2009+ RX8? Or is this a bushing that can be fit on any year MX-5? Thanks.
