    swapped in an intermittent wiper stalk, bout a 10 minute job real straightforward. rear wipers still function as well.
    ahhh i love the daily driver mods.
    I did this upgrade too, and honestly I don*t understand why Mazda didn*t just install these at the factory

    Haven't done much, just new LED's for plate lights etc. Got an alignment after installing Moog camber bolt kits all around the car, -1.5 camber all around.
    Also installed some new tail lights, no more looking at those ugly round ones :^)

    Righteous man, how was installing those camber bolts? Might be a good fine-tune mod for the future, since my car's an understeer machine.

    If I was you though, I would've put more negative camber up front than in the rear. Give yourself better turn-in for those corners

    It wasn't too bad, loosening up and removing the old rusted bolts/nuts were the only issue I had. When I drove over to the alignment shop I had -3 camber on the rear lol. After talking with him we both settled on -1.5 all around, with how the tires would wear in mind. Might consider that in the future, maybe when I get a rear sway bar in and go in for another alignment.

    Looks like I got a good 2 years out of my $130 OBX exhaust before it started cracking up and getting all rusted up. Pretty set on a full racingbeat exhaust set up, paired with the corksport exhaust hangers.. seems to be about $500+$400 shipping to Hawaii. Anybody happen to know other places selling it? Or any other suggestions on an exhaust set up?

    Haven't done much, finishing up finals til I get my winter break to do more.

    Replaced the back two exhaust hangers with kartboy polyurethane hangers, shit is solid! Fixed the rattling problem I had.
    Also threw in a used AEM SRI I scooped up from ebay. Ordered an AEM filter wrap so I wouldn't have to worry about it getting wet and messing everything up.


    Nothing big planned cept simple stuff; up next I want to paint the valve cover, new wheels (trying to find a nice set of 16x7 bronze wheels), AWR rear sway bar, bondo/repaint the front bumper or find a new bumper, motormounts...
    Sorry that yall came to this thread just to see bolt up mods... I'll get to the fun stuff once I knock out all this easy crap and have her looking a bit prettier :^)

    Ive been running the progress bar for like 9 years. It matched up perfectly with stock end links and the bushings lined up perfect too. I chose it over the AWR because of those reasons and it looks stock if you just glance under there. About 5 or 6 years ago I bought the Moog endlinks #K80868 (i believe) they are beefier than stock p5 links and are greasable. In 9 years never had any clunking.

    Thanks for the feedback guys. Appreciate it.
    Is there a specific site you ordered from? Google returns sites like Autoplicity etc..
    Gonna try to order it as soon as I find a site to get it from. >

    **UPDATE

    Nevermind, found out cr3motorsports sells them and they're in Hawaii as well

    Forgot to mention if you choose the beefier rear links i had to use a 90*zerk on the tops otherwise it would hit the inner wheelwell. But might be because im on Eibachs.
    Either way they r way more user friendly i think
