i think you can also tell by your brakes (correct me someone if im wrong) but the standard suspension had same size front rear rotors where as the sports have bigger front ones.

where is that again????... a sway bar?? where is that... i'm sorry for my stupidity....
I am sure that there is an easier way. There has got to be a list of what comes with each trim package for each year on this forum if you do some searching.
But, you can see the rear swaybar behind the rear suspension. It is attached to the knuckle (I think) on the rear via endlinks. The swaybar then runs across the rear of the car to the other side. The sport swaybars are beefier and are marked as such with a yellow dot.
I HAVE NO IDEA IF THIS IS EASY. Just one way to make sure. I am POSITIVE there is an easier way. I just dont know.
me too there's got to be an easier way... i've search every where and even called mazda which they don't know.... they say "all I can say is that it is a touring package"..... and somebody on top told me that "touring means sport"..... just came back from checkin the sway bar...... didn't see any yellow dot...
