The pretty Box it came in...
I got the eibach camber link pair for
like $130, and then I painted them red with caliper paint so the alignment
tech could spot it easier. Although no pics of it in my car, I did
take the pics above and believe me, I installed them or else my rear wheels
would look funky leaning towards the middle of the car.
FYI: The SPC camber link IS the
Eibach camber link. So since they are the same product, I highly
suggest you buy the cheaper of the two.
I am positive they are cast from the same mold because my camber links say
SPC on them. haha
To install them is as difficult as a spring install, except you don't have
to use a spring compressor which makes it easier.
There's one bolt that holds this black box on top of the rear subframe that
makes installation difficult. This bolt requires the use of a 12mm or 10mm
ratcheting wrench. You have to snake your arm up into a tight space and
you'll have very little space to move around, but you have to remove this
box to back a bolt out... This was the only hard part I guess, and it's not
I think it took me 2 hours to install the links.
The beauty of it is I was creative and I adjusted my eibach camber links to
be identical to the mazdaspeed camberlinks.
After getting a professional alignment, the tech said my rear camber was
within spec. This is was with S-techs. I later got prokits and my
alignment was still ok.
So anyways, my camber links never needed adjustment. I just set it to the
mazdaspeed camber kit length and all was good. So this begs the
question... WHY didn't I get mazdaspeed camberlinks? Well I
guess I wanted my camber to be adjustable and who knows if my camber wasn't
the same left to right?
I posted a thread on the mazda3forums and there's a distance from hole to
hole somebody measured for their ms camber links. I counted how many turns
out to adjust the eibach links to match the ms links, then duplicated the
same number of turns on the other eibach camber link.
sstlaure measured the mazdaspeed camber link. 290mm from center of hole to
center of hole. Half way down the thread he posted it.
