Default CorkSport Mazdaspeed 6 Rear Sway Bar, New Part!



CorkSport is pleased to announce the addition of the new CorkSport Mazdaspeed 6 Rear Sway Bar to the growing list of product offerings designed to enhance and improve Mazdaspeed 6 performance.

Turning compresses the inside suspension. The CorkSport sway bar attaches both sides of the rear suspension together and resists weight transfer to the opposite side when your Mazdaspeed 6 turns. This anti-sway bar effectively increases the spring rate on the inside suspension and the effective extra spring rate helps to minimize traction robbing body roll.

The CorkSport Rear Sway Bar offers 70% more stiffness than the stock bar and will noticeably improve the cornering and traction of the vehicle without compromising ride quality. The result is an enhanced driving experience with dramatically improved cornering potential.

The CorkSport Mazdaspeed 6 Rear Sway Bar is manufactured from CNC bent 25mm 4130 steel with a black powder coated finish for exceptional strength and longevity. The install kit includes polyurethane mounting bushings to replace the stock rubber bushings and comes with a two year warranty, full color installation instructions and all of the needed installation hardware.

The CorkSport Mazdaspeed 6 Rear Sway Bar is competitively priced at $199 and is available for purchase at www.corksport.com

Does anyone here think that a RSB 70% stiffer than stock is a little overkill? I know it's a pusher... but wouldn't it be prone to spinning out under braking? If I'm not mistaken, the Whiteline's stiff setting is ~40% stiffer than stock and meets with great reviews.

Our bar is only slightly larger than the Whiteline bar which is adjustable starting at 20% on their softest setting and up to70% on their stiffest setting.

The speed6 is a big, heavy car that has a tendancy to understeer a lot from the factory, particularly with the front wheel drive models, so a stiff rear sway will help to counteract that.

A front sway bar is under development for the speed6 that should compliment this rear sway nicely.

From another thread - "I've read on another thread that aftermarket springs may cause the Whiteline bar to rub if on stiffest setting... requires some grinding of the bar ends. Seems like the Corksport would avoid this problem."

Is that true - does the Corksport prevent grinding if different springs are used (or lowered)?

Other thread for reference: Whiteline Adjustable or Corksport Stiffy Rear Sway Bar?

as far as im aware.. no option for a fwd model speed6..
not sure if pricing it higher than competitors is being competitive..

plus one on doobys question and how much does this weigh..

The swaybar weighs in at 20 lbs with the hardware.

We have a proto front swaybar which we will be testing out soon.
