Default FD sway bar options? front mounts?

Iv been looking at sway bar stuff to round out finishing my suspension. what are options people have used specifically the front mounts. Iv been looking and people used to swear by the WIDEFOOT mounts but i cant find any website info or ordering info. that and i figure there is probably cheaper options out now aswell that work as good. anybody with some info????

this car is mainly street but building with road race autocross in mind.

I have the widefoot sway bar mounts with David's bronze bushings with a Tri-Point Engineering .188 adjustable sway bar. It's great. No longer have to worry about cracking my mounts.

To get pricing and order widefoot swaybar mounts, email David B at widefoot@comcast.net
While you are at it, order yourself a widefoot gas pedal for easier heel toe shifting.

There were a bunch of sway bars listed on howard coleman's thread. You might want to refer to that. I run Eibach sway bars but they are no longer sold.

Yes I did.

I highly recommend the widefoot mounts. The other option is Mazda Competition mounts if you are a member but the pricing is very close to the Widefoots and not worth it. David doesn't have a web site but does respond to email.

I have a set of good condition stockers if you want a stock used set.

i got my sway bar mounts from www.rotaryengine.com (the site sux, but send them an email at espritauto@nucleus.com, they are very helpful, they are selling them for $215. the mount is built very well, it is the same design as the RE Amemiya mount being sold on http://www.rhdjapan.com/jdm-low/RE-A...-13B-REW-50434 for $323.28.

I bought a RB swaybar brace and my stock mounts are hanging in there after about three years.

I made my own widefoot mounts. The stock mounts were all messed up. Just used the stock bushings and what not.

I got mine from Mazdatrix a few years ago. They've held up pretty well so far, and they're not to expensive either. I probably would have gone with some Widefoots if at the time I thought I'd be tracking it someday. But these have worked pretty well, and I don't know that there's any proof that these won't hold up under track pressure anyway. I guess I'll see eventually haha.
