I'm just trying to eliminate the rear drum brakes when its time. They are okay for now but obviously want something better, and need to add a hydro hand brake eventually. I can't imagine the 08+ ones have brakes that require anything bigger than a 15 inch wheel.
We are in the process of testing it all out now. Looking into buying another zx3 parts car or anything with the same motor/trans set up.
Whats the Mazda 3 thing I'm hearing? Anyone know the compatibility with those? Or is that a can of worms I dont want to open up?

MkII '08-'11 for bigger brakes, the only little difference in the suspension comes there as the later cars have slightly larger bolts through the arms holding on the stub axles.
Look for a version with the rear sway bar, no mounts on the ones without. Why add mounts when you can pick a sub frame with them?

Subframe Interchange questions.
I really just want to know whats compatible. What parts from which years are better and why.

|twilightbluezetec||I need a rear subframe too since mine is rusted to crap and my rear alignment is all screwed up. But I read that a Mazda 3 rear suspension is the same as a Focus. So can the Mazda 3's subframe bolt right up to a Focus? So I can broaden my search for a rear subframe.|

|hypnoticracing||the entire suspension was identical for the hatches and sedans... any rear subframe/ suspension from 00-11 wil bolt up...|

|Justin svt||I think you can just get some from the junk yard and the holes for the bar are already in your rear frame. a new frame seems like alot of work for sway bar bushings|
