Suspension Diagrams

A looong time ago, someone posted some pretty detailed diagrams of the front and rear suspension.
I searched and can only find the low-res things on Mazdausa's performance corner site.
Anyone know where I can find those again?

I got friendly with a curb at speed, and there's this thing attached to the bottom of the strut tube that got shoved up about 2" and now it's out of alignment (obviously). I'm taking it in to a shop, but I want to look at the diagrams a bit to see what else might have been tweaked (besides the busted rim)

Don't recall seeing anything like that here. Try mazda6tech.com, they should have something like this, otherwise, I dunno. Sorry for ya man, poor 6 ...

It was loooong before you joined sonny ;)

And mazda6tech was the first place I checked.

Thanks for the sympathy, but I think she'll be ok. got new rims, and four new BFG Traction T/As so hopefully they wont just decide to let loose without warning like the HX MXMs did (bastard tires!)

Thanks to Warren for his help, he pointed me to his image collection (in Australian regional section of the forums) where I found the diagrams I was looking for.

Unfortunately, on of the parts I am interested in, I can't seem to find it labeled.

Can someone please tell me what the part on the bottom of the shock tube is called? It's the part that connects it to the "front lower arm (front)".

If someone has a shop manual, can you tell me if that part can be adjusted, or is it part of the shock tube?
