Hi Buzzn
Lets first start with the part number.

What part number are you using?

and

What is wrong with the ones they do send you?

As far as the part numbers I,m not using mazda part # due to the fact that Mazda USA does not support the car anymore thus wont even try to do a search. They just look at me like I\'m crazzy, I have tried various parts houses, NAPA shows the part in the bood w/a picture looks the same however it shows up and is not like the factory goose neck, its short and at about a 15 deg. angle, Rare Spare does not return calls or e-mails, various other places I have tried and no luck,  I\'m just about at an end of what to do, either a put the old stuff back on and suffer, or try to convert to Hiem joints and just fab the rest...

A few people say 1g rx7 inners can work however they are to short and the taper is larger diameter. There is a guy in the states that found them new however he won\'t tell me where he got them ?? LOL go figure.

this is my last hurtle to finish my car, 4 year build from a shell and 5 parts cars, paint, chrome,many $K.00 later and Im stuck on some $40. worth of parts.:guinness

So what kind of setup are you running on your race car?

Ah my Avatar is an RX-2 I used to own. The one I have now is a road car only, a restoration project ( actually its just a RESCUE project at the moment!).

I will look up the part number, and I will try Mazda here. They have sourced quite a few parts for me, cheerfully !

dude, my (USA) parts list shows:

2133 99 322A SOCKET Assembly qty 2 (inner tie rod end)
2370 99 324   SOCKET assembly qty 2 (outer toe rod end)

Can you try Mazda US with these part numbers? If no joy, I will try and source them here and send them to you,

:-)

I got an e-mail back from Repco they will sell to me/us directly and ship,
$17.00 each US pluss shipping not a bad price at all so I\'ll ordered 3 sets concidering the shiping was the same.  I hope this helps everyone and thank you all for your input..
