Yeah, it's pretty bad. I was slightly worried about the fitment prior to ordering as it did seem like he was a small shop, but he assured me that he uses jigs based on the OEM setup. I'm not sure how I'm supposed to interpret that now. I can lay the OEM parts I have on the ground next to the Dominant Engineering setup and see the error without any sort of jig or measurements.

Oh well. If I don't hear back from him soon, I'm going to be attempting a PayPal dispute. I find it all very odd as his workmanship seems extremely professional, so why would he jeapordize his fledgling business by ignoring a customer who is trying to help him fix a problem of his own making?

I'm glad to hear you managed to get yours working, though. The fewer people being scammed, the better. May I ask where you got the front poly hangers? I ordered mine through CFM but didn't notice the front ones being available...

Oops... forgot to mention my catback is a FSWerks 2.5" SS with the 'Stealth' (versus 'Race') option.

Is there no post 'edit' feature here or did I overlook a button?

Overlooked the button. I'll have to get you the link when I get a chance at home. They are softer than the rears from cfm.

Cool, I'd appreciate the link. And thank whatever diety that they're softer as the CFM ones were quite a challenge.

So does Dominant Engineering have a phone number or address where I can reach them (him?)? If it comes down to having to send formal correspondence, I'd like to have my ducks lined up.

Link PM'ed. As far as I know there is no phone number but your package should have an address on it. The CFM ones for the rear I had to open up the hole a little bit to get them on.

Thanks for the link. How's the fit on the fronts? I nearly had to open up the CFM ones as well. I managed to get them all on, but it was quite a workout.

The package from Dominant does have an address on it. I just googled it and it looks like a residential neighborhood. So I'm not sure I can show up and ask to see Customer Service.

He still hasn't responded to an email since Aug 19th. I assume others on here are able to communicate with him during this time? Is Dominic on the forum?

I think he is just on the mazda forums now....last I heard anyways. The front poly mounts fit ok. You can get them on by hand.

A bit of an update: There was a phone number on the package Dominic sent me, so I called it. Sunday afternoon I spoke with a nice lady who I can only assume is his mother. She assured me that she would have him call me back to sort the situation out. Apparently he doesn't listen to his mother as I've not heard back. I tried calling today and got the answering machine, so I left a message. I'll not be holding my breath.

I feel as though I'm being enormously patient through this and have shown good faith, yet I've gotten absolutely nothing from him. If I don't hear back from him tomorrow, I'll have to file a PayPal dispute as I have no choice but to conclude that he's willing to keep my money without delivering a functioning product. Sad, really.

A bit more of an update: As I didn't have time to wait for Dominic's non-answers, I ordered an ORP/Flex combo from CFM. Easy checkout, prompt shipping, included hardware and an absolutely perfect fit. Lesson learned.

That's encouraging. I'm new to PayPal resolutions. It begins life as a Dispute and gets elevated to a Claim if Dominic doesn't respond? How far did yours go?
