When we designed the MX5 conversion we built the sway bar mounts directly into the subframe. The mounts were adjusted to clear the engine accessories and to allow proper room for the upgraded radiator. The bar uses a series of custom bends to achieve this. 1-1/8 tubular double wall with two adjustment options. Bar ends are 1/4" thick laser-cut flanges, tig welded. Includes poly bushings and brackets. Powder coated in silver vain gray.
|Dimensions||44 × 20 × 4 in|
The bar itself seems well made. Powdercoat is a nice quality. However, given the lack if support provided with the bar, both in the form of written instructions and in the website description, you don’t learn this doesn’t work with all LS harmonic balancers without fitment problems. With vette style belt spacing, 1/2” spacers were required between the mounting pads and brackets. Further, unlike the picture, the bar does NOT have center lips keep the bar positioned properly between the bushings. I bought split collars to do this on my own accord.
Hi Donald - Please make sure you have the motor mounts in the correct orientation with the
large window to the rear. With the mounts as so there should be around .200' between the bar and the Vette damper. If you have the damper part number we can confirm fitment and that it is the correct part as well. Thanks!
