    Picked up my axles from Jack yesterday with only 30,000 miles on them. Just have to clean them up a bit. Next the differential bushings.

    Still a couple of $100.00 away. Still need differential and control arm bushings.

    Are there Mazdaspeed or Mazda Racing versions of the diff mounts?

    Delrin too stiff. I ordered the Mazda competition differential bushings instead which are 30% stiffer. Weather cooling off and I'm ready to go to work. Also ordered my stiffer lower rear control arm bushings. Hope to install them between Thanksgiving and Christmas.

    A prudent decision. I also had a set of Delrin diff mounts but sold them because I realized I wanted a high-performance, streetable Miata, not a squeaky race car.

    Does anybody hate the words, "BACK ORDERED!" Mother__!@#$%&*! The tires I want, Back Ordered!!.......Orde red lower rear control arm bushings from Meghan Racing............Ba ck Ordered and cancelled my order! At least my differential bushings I ordered from Mazda Roadster I got a Pay Pal invoice from, but once he places the order they might be back ordered also. What the hell is going on?

    Hello Bernie,

    Thank you for your interest in the Mazda Miata 90-05 Rear Lower Arm Bush (MRS-MZ-0721). Unfortunately, they are in back order and we don't have an exact ETA yet. We are sorry for the inconvenience this may have caused and you will receive a refund. It usually takes 5-8 business days to your bank or PayPal to credit the refund to your account, depending on their own process. We will notify you immediately once the next shipment arrives at our warehouse.

    I know that frustration. It really screws up plans, especially when we only have three months of tolerable weather for big projects. I’ve been replacing faucets here and even got a beautiful Kohler for the laundry room. I want to replace the sink too and I thought I could just down to Lowes and get it but unfortunately it’s backordered for several weeks.
