Front Upright Upper Ball Joint Drag Link for MX5 Miata

Hi,
Does anyone know of a drag link that fits the MX5 front upright on the upper tapor?

I want to buy off the shelf threaded ball joint that the tapor fits the upright without modifications. Trying to keep my work load down as I have enough to do and want parts to fit so when I have crashed parts, it's quick and easy to change.

BMW E28 (and others) TRE (M14 x 1.25 fitting into wishbone). I have not seen any other joint used.

First Line part number FTR4161. Motaquip PN VTR325.

Double check for fitment as mine fitted NA uprights fine but not NB ones - the TRE was too short to securely fix to the upright. I could not find an alternative that had the additional length.

Hi, I have also been looking into mx5 hub top ball joint, just had a look on Kit Car direct and they are selling some RX-5 drag links for the top ball joints, has anyone had any experience with them? Do they fit properly? I presume they would as the RX-5 uses mx-5 uprights. Link below.

KFC,


Dude! That's a beautiful profile pic. However it's also about 50% of my screen!

Maybe shrink it down by about 90%!
