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.

Brian, just wanted tyou to know you've got another highly satisfied customer. I got my RoadstersportIII muffler on Friday, installed it in 20 minutes, looks and sounds awesome. I like the baffles out!! My new tires/wheels came Saturday, just got them on and test drove them. Fantastic!! And how they look--- just what I was after. I will add the front "mud flap" that looks like the rear one, for some stone protection, but the offset was just what I was working for. I'd love to send you some pictures for your photo gallery. If you'll send an adress via e-mail, I'll send some high-res photos showing clearances and side profiles, etc. The graphite spokes and polished rims really set well on my black car. Thanks again, me and my wallet will be back!!

I should thank you. The parts ordered have greatly enhanced my MX-5 and they were received well before I could have reasonably expected them. I'm an enthusiastic new customer. Regards, John
