R3 Front Sway Bar

[EDIT] I no longer need this bar. Thanks!

In the Dallas area and looking to buy an R3 front sway bar, brackets, and bushings. Don't mind paying shipping if needed. PM me here and let me know what you have.

per the literature from Mazda the R3 didn't get a different swaybar set than the normal S2s got

see here: (note R3 package started in 2009 MY)

It did, the R3 bars are specific and the bars are identified by an Orange Dot. The part numbers for the R3 is different for the bars front an rear from the other model S2's. There were also changes in the bushings on different models as well IIRC.

I have R3 bars on my S1.

Indeed. I have a yellow dot front bar, and I want to go just a hair stiffer to an orange dot bar. My car is very well balanced, but tends just a tad more toward oversteer than I want. An R3 front bar may be just perfect without having to go through aftermarket experimentation.

I have a yellow dot front swaybar modified by flattening more of the arm end in a brake press and adding a stiffer position end link hole if that will help.
