PART NUMBER: 61-2011
For 1990-1997 Miata Front and Rear
Stronger endlinks are a MUST when you change to a stiffer sway bar and when you lower your Miata you want adjustable endlinks to maintain correct geometry (bar ends level). RoadsterSport Sway Bar End Links include TWO center studs so that this one endlink has the widest range of adjustment of any endlink on the market. These can be adjusted from the same length as stock down to much shorter for lowered cars. This also means that this same endlink works for both the front and rear sway bars.
The new Version 2 of our popular endlinks uses a combination of head styles; One ball joint end to allow lots of articulation for misalignment between control arms and sway bar, and the other is a CNC-machined aluminum end housing fitted with a urethane bushing to reduce flex. This combination works with all years of Miatas 1990-2005.
Sold INDIVIDUALLY. You want TWO of these per sway bar so be sure to order two if you want two!
Stock NA endlink length (Front and Rear): 108mm
Stock NB endlink length (Front and Rear): 105mm
RoadsterSport endlink adjustable range: 112mm (max. length with long stud) to 75mm (min. length with short stud)
* 75mm length is 5mm shorter than even the Racing Beat rear endlinks.
- Fits 1990-2005 Miatas - Front and Rear.
- Compatible with ALL our sway bar options
- Direct replacements for the stock end links.
- Can be used on both standard height and lowered vehicles.
- Can be easily installed using only simple hand tools.
- Comes complete with securing hardware.
*Endlinks ship un-assembled so that you can assemble using the correct center stud length for your needs. Jam nuts on the center stud take a 14mm wrench.
There are two types of heads used in this endlink:
*NA chassis (1990-1997): Attach the through-bolt side of the endlink to the control arm, attach the ball joint side of the endlink to the sway bar.
*NB Chassis (1999-2005): Attach the ball-joint side of the enlink to the control arm, and the through-bolt side of the endlink to the sway bar.
*To tighten the endlink nuts: the through-bolt end takes a 16mm wrench (bolt head)and 17mm wrench (lock nut). For the ball-joint end, to tighten the lock nut on the stud you insert a 5mm allen key in to the end of the stud to hold it in place and then use a 17mm open-ended wrench to tighten the lock nut down while holding the stud stationary with the allen key
Shipping was fast and the end links are very high quality. They look great.
However, functionality was extremely irritating. These do not adjust turnbuckle style. To adjust you have to disconnect from the lower control arm, adjust and reinstall. If you are trying to remove installed preload, this is a hassle.
With a turnbuckle style adjustment you do not have to remove and can adjust while still installed. This would be fine if it was stated on the website but it is not.
Overall a really high quality piece, with a serious design flaw from a usability perspective.
Thanks for your review Jay!
Regarding your note about the length adjustment - this is not a design flaw at all. We do sell several endlinks that have that quick-adjust turnbuckle design for racers who are changing sway bar settings often and want that, but the drawback of that style is if the jam nut comes loose on an endlink with that design, the endlink can actually change length while you are driving, thus changing preload and really messing things up. So that style of endlink requires that you check the jam nuts often, and they also cost more.
These RoadsterSport endlinks are an excellent budget option that have a more reliable set-it-and-forget-it design which cannot change length on you even if a jam nut comes loose because you have to disconnect it from the sway bar to rotate the head and change the length. That's intentional, and for most folks who aren't changing sway bar settings constantly, a more desirable feature.

This product came in today in a clear bag with smaller bags inside of it. The bag that contained my 4 swaybar end links had a hole in it but the pieces that escaped from their big bag got caught by the fedex shipping bag, Win! No instruction, some slight damaged to the machined surfaces due to the fact that it's shipped without any packing or protection but.. who the hell cares really? They go under the car anyway, but it's still kind of annoying that the quality of the shipping is so ba. The product did however, get here in a timely manner and they look like they will do their job. I'll follow back up after installation.
