Title: FD OEM Mazda Pillow Balls
Post by: Juan on July 29, 2011, 09:07:39 PM
(http://www.j-auto.net/temp/fdpillowkit.jpg)

OEM Mazda Pillow Ball set of 6 with 12 dust seals for the rear suspension of an FD.
The most obvious signs of bad pillow balls is clunking noises in the rear. Bad pillow ball clunks are especially noticeable when backing out of a parking spot or being stuck in rush hour traffic with lots of stop & go action at very low speeds.


PRICE: $425 plus shipping. Order at www.j-auto.net (http://www.j-auto.net). In stock, ready to ship!
8.75% sales tax will be applied to California residents. Cash and credit cards are accepted for locals and Paypal for everyone else.

Thanks!  8)

They're really easy to install using two sockets, a long bolt, washers and a nut to press them in/out.

You can remove & install them like the video shows. Some pillow balls come out easier than others as each car is different. Make sure you press the new pillow ball in with the flat side at the snap ring end of the arm and also make sure the snap ring is installed with the flat side touching the pillow ball. Put some grease on the pillow ball, install the dust boot and burp the air from under it. Torque everything up and enjoy  :drive:

Super easy to install and these made a huge difference in how my car drove.  only did it to get rid of the clunk and was astounded at the difference in feel as well.

Ive got more sets of these in stock and will cover the taxes for locals while this batch of pillow balls lasts.
In other words, no taxes for locals while supplies last!  :cheers:

Hi Juan

I am from Sydney Australia.  I have a RX7 Series 8 type RS and I need a set of rear Pillowball bushes.

Will/can you ship a set of Mazda OEM bushes to Australia?

Can you tell me the cost of the Bushes and the Dust covers?

Do you have any idea of the shipping costs?

What is the best way to pay to them?

Regards
