Ugh, i forgot about good win when I was looking
That said, those are front endlinks, and the only ones they offer for the rears are some crazy custom jobs, way over kill and not recommended on "stock style bars"

The Moog endlinks for my Legacy were far heavier duty than the Subaru ones.  They are also greaseable, and cheaper. Rockauto looks like they have very similar ones for the Mazda.

Yeah, i looked at the moogs on there, but really think I'm gonna change up the suspension in the spring, so adjustable was preferred. Thanks for looking out though :mrgreen:

Going ahead and ordering the brackets from CorkSport tonight, tired of comparison shopping
Nooope. Fuck that. Not paying $18 to ship something that would fit in a third of a small flat rate box.  Calling JBR in the morning instead to see if they have the right size to match this bar

I've got a 22mm Whiteline on the Legacy, I'm confident the Moogs are up to task

It's not the force from the bar in worried about, I've got a 25mm bar on here, on the stiffer setting, and the mounts went before the endlinks did lol
It's the adjustable length to keep the bar positioned correctly if i lower the car in the future

I only mentioned beefier because, well, if i gotta pay for an upgrade anyway, it might as well do both, right?  :wink:

I gotcha now...

Now that I'm thinking about endlinks, I should go grease them.

Adjustability is a good thought.  Just make sure that whatever's used for adjustment isn't made of Whiteline-style Rustainium.

"Galvanized Steel Construction for heavy duty rust prevention"
We'll see

And no shit, they actually arrived this morning from Germany!
I had another item I ordered before this that turns out it originated in albany, and these got here faster lol

But, dammit, haven't ordered the brackets yet. JBR wanted me to verify the exact diameter and I haven't crawled back under there with the calipers yet (worked most of the weekend, still in the office while writing this....this project needs to end soon)

So I'm the mean time, my poor Mazda is still feeling like a sloppy boat on the turns  :cry:

I ran disconnected front endlinks on the subaru for a while.  It was fun, had to be awake!

It's like having a '70s Caddy that you ran thru the dryer..
