Thank you. You have rated this product.

On the 1999 Miata application, Mazda made a change to the end link attachment bracket on the front lower control arms. The 1990-97 Miata was produced with a "U" shaped end link attachment brackets, while the later Miatas were produced with a single-sided "L" shaped end link attachment bracket.

Racing Beat's observations have led them to believe that this "L" shaped design may not be strong enough to handle the demands of a stronger aftermarket sway bar. Racing Beat STRONGLY recommended the addition of these Lower Control Arm Reinforcement Flanges. This modification will convert the "L" shaped bracket into a "U" shaped bracket, and while this modification requires some minor welding. After completion of this modification, the stock end links can no longer be used. Frankly, we have yet to hear of a single example of the OEM setup breaking, but that is Racing Beat's recommendation and having one break could easily result in a very serious loss of control of the vehicle.

Price is for TWO flanges, as shown in the photo - enough for both front lower control arms on one car.

Hi Brian, I just bought a heatshield and a cruise control relocation bracket for my '95 Miata from you. It is in the mail now. Thanks for such fast service. (My cruise is just wrapped up in a microfiber shoprag at this time!)

Brian, Thank you!!! We last spoke in November about some upgrades for my 2011 MX5 soft top. It has finally warmed up in NE Ohio and two relaxed weekends of wrenching on my car were well worth the effort. Installation of the RoadsterSport ceramic coated street header was straight forward and took under 8 hours, including a 40 minute test drive and cleanup of the garage! Combined with the RoadsterSport Q exhaust, the sound is fantastic and the increased torque, horsepower and performance make it a blast to drive. The addition of the Cobalt shock tower brace, Racing Beat sway bars, ILM front power train and X braces really enhanced the ride - minimal body roll, comfortable and very responsive. Your recommendations really helped transform the car from great to fantastic. Your research, product development and candid recommendations make you a standout in the industry. My only questions are - what's next on my list .... And how soon will my wife want the same upgrades on her 2012 PRHT ... Again, thank you!!! Charles G
