Upgrades

Recommended Posts

Anybody know some oem parts from other vehicles that will fit on a 97 626 i4 manual. Like swaybars, brakes, anything that is better than stock 626.

I don't have a welder so minimal modification

2003-2008 Mazda 6 front brakes, 98-02 626 rear brakes is a very common upgrade.

Flywheel from the 1.8 V6 of the MX3 fits and is significantly lighter.

98 rear sway bar will go on.  Supposedly a rear sway bar from a Ford Contour will go on too, but the end links aren't quite right so I never got it to fit (just bought an AWR bar instead).

I never got around to trying it, but from what I could tell from spec sheets, the shocks/springs from a Chevy HHR will fit.  But that is a  BIG maybe because I never verified or even went too deep into the research.  Put Yonaka coilovers instead as the were only $550 or so.  They are great.
