I usually order via the phone from Mazda Motorsports but they seem busy as I've been on hold for 17 minutes so I figured I'd ask you guys and try to order online.

Which one is the R version tie rod end?

Thanks.

It is explicitly stated in the GCR.

Yes, it explicitly states a part number that doesn't match the available list of parts.

Am I reading this incorrectly?  If so, please educate me.

DISREGARD - I'm an idiot and can't read my own notes and I can't delete this comment. This is actually a tie rod end/lower ball joint reference.

 

 

Alberto, my notes show the following for the r-package tie rod end:

N021-32-280A/NA01-34-550A

 

The first is obviously the GCR reference but I believe the -34-550A is the latest iteration.

Thanks.  I actually just found the box to search by part number.  Not sure how I missed that before...  I usually just call them.

 

Interestingly, searching by both part numbers you posted yields 2 results with different prices.

 

I guess I'll search by part number in the GCR and buy that one.  :)
