Yes I need to be this cheap, where should I get them from? Direct from racingbeat I'm guessing?

I got mine from MiataRoadster who is a sponsor of this site. He offered a competive price with excellent customer service.

A few months ago, [email protected] ran a sale where the prices were discounted to "Racing Beat employee prices" I believe during that sale the hollow RB for 94-97 was $130. That should help you gauge how much you can knock off the MSRP.

Keep in mind also, that you are more likely to get a discount on parts if you order multiple items from a vendor. Perhaps you need a set of coilovers with you swaybar or something like that.

Didn't you just unload the FM sways a little while ago on the cheap?

Anyway, you probably aren't going to see a huge difference in pricing from vendor to vendor. Shipping the bars is going to hurt a little bit.

dc2696 have you tried contacting rx7 specialties in Calgary? I know they carry RacingBeat and that's where I got mine from through a local vendor.

Well I'm thinking delrin bushings everywhere(offset fronts), super stiff springs(right now theyre gay 450/350''s), need to decide on shocks until then kybs and a hollow 94-97 sway, along with my butterfly, cannon, and nb tophats...I think I forgot something lol

Hopefully I can out corner Brian this yr at strato, his cornerin speeds were a joke with 550/350 bilsteins and suspension technique bars.

It's not that much if you consider the brokerage and shipping you still gotta pay if you order it from the U.S.

Which bar are you looking to purchase,the solid or hollow bar?
