Hey Chris, good score. I happened across another user ( @Nascar1555 ) and his sub-frame renewal project.


The thing that got me about this (other than being very pretty) was the bushing collars that were used.
Since I am always in search for things that improve rigidity this was a natural eyebrow raiser for me.
With your location, powder coating may not be a bad idea.

Chris' 2007 Mazda 6s Hatch

The day is finally here!! It has been a painstaking four weeks between work and rusted bolts and tight spaces but the result is absolutely amazing. I did take some pics along the way as well as a bit of a photo shoot today, unfortunately most of the work isnít visible as it all took place under the car but hereís the list and pics

Front:
wheel bearings (both sides, passenger side twice...)
Passenger control arms (Detroit Axle)
Outer tie rod ends (both sides- Detroit Axle)
Struts (KYB Excel G)
Front lowering springs (Eibach)
Subframe (scrapyard Ď06)
Rear engine mount (Anchor)
Sway bar/polyurethane bushings (Steeda)




Rear:
Wheel bearings (TRQ)
Lower rear control arms/spring seats (both- Duralast)
Camber Bolts (OEM Mazda)
Outer bolts, rear control arm (OEM Mazda)
Toe control arms (Ultra-Power)
Lowering springs (Eibach)

Basically in the end I replaced everything under the car that was more than two years old, more pics below.

Did another ATF flush today to swap out the cheap Valvoline ATF with some RP Max. Iíve only put about 6 miles on it but it does seem happier than before especially once it gets hot 175+
