Nc miata adjustable endlinks

Postby MattB310 » Thu Sep 02, 2021 10:08 pm

Recently upgraded my sways on a 08 Nc and went with whiteline adjustable endlinks on an otherwise stock car. And ive noticed so new clunking like noise from the rear of the car and investigated to find the endlinks occasionally making contact with the stock struts. Ive dbl and tripple checked my install snd now im wondering if this is because the links are long, swaybar isnt quite bent right or if this is just because the car isnt lowered yet? Im really questioning the link length and bar bends as this is a flyin miata bar. Any shared input or experiences would be stellar.

Here it is. Played with mounting positions and in the middle its much better but still seems to make contact.

Hmm, looks pretty good, nothing obviously wrong to me that I can see in that picture. They could likely make next batch of bars with a hair less length across the back so links lean in just a bit at the top to avoid potential contact.

One thing the picture does remind me is that crinkle finish paint that FM uses will sort of scrub out the lube over time and we have seen some of those broken. The solution is just inspect and add more lube yearly, don't let the bushings get dry.

Yeaaa i feel you there! That was in the loosest hole. I moved them to the middle hole and its better but still happens. This moved the links nearly vertical btw. I preemptively ordered the rb rear bar to compare with as im genuinely curious and that bar is a close match to the fm bars.
