    Default MPS6 - Whiteline rear sway bar installed...Rear Endlink upgrade?

    Hi,
    Have read a ton of threads, seems i have the same issues (clunking/creaking when going on angles/incline forward or reverse) from the rear.
    car is stock with the exception of latest replacement of diff mounts (c-pe and turbine tech) and the Whiteline rear sway bar

    rear end links?
    i've read as much as i can and am frustrated at not being able to easily order a set

    moog? are they only for mps 3s?
    whiteline? cnat seem to navigate their website
    ebay?

    gaah!!!!

    any help? any sites to purchase in Oz...or overseas that will ship?
    thanks

    You can get Moog end links for the 6 from Stupor Cheap Auto's online store

    Supercheap Auto Parts Guide - Spare Parts Vehicle Selector - Supercheap Auto Australia

    Try under Mazda6 2007 GG3R, the website is a little hard to direct link


    Moog front end links are $18.16 each and the rears are $20.37 each.

    I would steer clear of Whiteline sway bar links. They're not correctly designed for the 3, and cause the clunking issue to be worse. Unsure about the 6, but I wouldn't be risking it considering how expensive they are.

    i swear cannot find shit.
    very frustrating

    i tightenned up one of the bolts on one side (was loose, but when tightening, the rubber stopped/grommet? on the other side just compresses and doesnt sit flush, the one on the other side is tight and sits flat) and now the noise is dulled down to a slight creaking. not as shuddering as before.
    ive got some pics ill get off my phone soon which might explain a bit more than what i can...

    That last photo is of your ride/headlight levelling sensor.

    As for the creaking, could be the bushes as well as the links?

    the end link bushing? or sway bar bushing (instructions/pamphlet provided said "grease free technology" or something)

    the creaking is more noticable on slow, corners,slopes

    am i over obsessing? car drives fine otherwise
    althou i am a bit paranoid about possibly overtightening one of the links and causing wheel alignment issues?

    making some enquiries on postage for these
    Sway Bar Endlinks for 03-08 Mazda 6 Rear - Racing Beat

    might be worth replacing anyways, since my stock end links are 10 years old now

    cheesey summary of my day/DIY to add to the youtube library...
    spent the day off visiting my old man and working on possibly the worst "driveway" for a sliding creeper.

    noise is significantly reduced!

    check out the 10 yr old stock links...
