NB Racing beat end links

Post by Samson »

Hi all,
I just bought the Racing Beat ball joint type end links from Goodwin for my 2005 Miata. I just installed FM sways and quicky broke one of my rear end links. Any tips for putting the racing beat end links on?
I see they came disassembled. Should I partially assemble and align first?

Thank you

Should the sway ends be pointed horizontally (90 degrees) with the end links standing straight up (180 degrees)?

Thank you

On the broken rear link, make sure you had the link to the correct side of the bar. Often the broken rear link is because customer accidentally attached the link to the wrong side of the sway bar. Yes, you ideally want link moving straight up/down.

I had the end links on the right side (outside pointing in) but I had the sway flipped over so that the top edge was pointing out instead of in. Lesson learned and no damage done.
Brian do the front end links go on the outside pointing in or inside pointing out? It didnt seem to fit right when I had the front links on the outside, so I currently have them on the inside pointing out and they sit fairly flush. The front sway top edge does seem to point outwards a bit, but I have been told the front sway should be straight up and down.

Thank you for your guidance

Thank you Brian!
That picture explains it perfectly. Fronts definitely looks like they go from the inside pointing out, rears outside pointing in.
Thank you very much for taking the time to answer this for me.
