way too short. i got the one which is double adjustable and here are 2 problems:

1. the holes for the end links are the same diameter whereas for the mpv, the right size is bigger than the left.

2. even with max. extension, both end links end up with just 1/8" which is not safe.

No allignment yet since new stuff hasn't fully settled. Installation was done by a professional mechanic but I helped for the easy job as well.

novalight, I think only you and me are interested in this matter. Please take a look at http://www.spohn.net/ - they can customize panhard bar among other things.

They make 2 types adjustable panhard bar, the center adjustable is only up to 1.5" adjustable while the end adjustable goes up to 3". Measurement should be done with original panhard bar NOT on the car obviously but with TEIN or Voglandt, simply measuring the panhard bar will do because they are not extreme drop.

Ordering from the website is easy, but I don't want to make mistake with my measurements. Let me know if you plan to order from them and if you don't mind sharing the measurement.

we currently do not stock in usa however we will get a quote for you.

so it is attainable in the USA


This is the Part
RS-R ラテラルロッド LTM0003B マツダ MPV LWFW AJ 2002年04月~

Translated:
RS-R Lateral Rod Mazda MPV LWFW (Body Code) AJ (3L engine Code) 4/2002 model and above

the cheapest I found in japan is 13,900 yes roughly 139.57 USD not including shipping.

another creative idea is to take your OEM rod to a machine shop have them cut it and weld in a threaded rod and a nut to the opposite end.

thanks, i'd love to get one but i just can't figure out where to get the rs-r bar, jp auction is too confusing.

yeah, i might cut the original but i prefer to replace. so far i got:

length = 46" (which means you need 45" or so for the custom one)
bolts= 19mm and 23mm
end width - 2"

now i feel like buying wheels and wing,too Laughing

No wing Laughing Junkyards are a bit far but getting the right color is tricky. there are 3 variation of this grey color - titanium grey, galaxy grey and even the razor blue which appears greyish to some eyes.

If I can find a new titanium grey painted and shipped for under $150 - I'm game otherwise I'd check some junkyard.
