Why you want the Ford rear, Drag ?

My SA Roadrace has the S3 rearend with Koni Coilovers, MazdaSpeed two piece driveshaft, MazdaSpeed Watts Link, adjustable lower trailing arms and adjustable swaybar.

It's the set-up from the Competetion Preparation Manual RIGHT CLICK - SAVE AS

The model I run is NLA, but check this out, you can get the length, stroke, bore or whatever you'd like.

I run Respeed coilovers on the front, along with Respeed adjustable height perches in the back. Bilstein shocks in rear, with Illuminas up front. Couldn't be happier. Customer support from Respeed is simply out of this world, so check them out...

I run a G-Force Engineering Tri-Link rear suspension with panhard bar. It is wonderful on a road race track, but too harsh for the street because it has no rubber bushings.

A Ford 9" rear end is VERY heavy compared to the Mazda rear end. Heavy unsprung weight leads to poor handling.
