Could Not Believe The Difference, Before and After
FM has it right when they say "If you're only going to do one thing to your ND, this is what it should be." I could not believe the difference in both ride quality and cornering after I put these bars on my 2019 RF GTS.

I also took Eric's advice and added some new rubber and a performance-oriented alignment, and now I just grin ear-to-ear in every corner.

Great Kit At An Unmatched Price
I recently upgraded my daily driver from a lightly modified NA to a stock ND. Even though I knew body roll and pitching under acceleration/braking were an issue beforehand, I was still shocked at the amount of movement there was.
This kit solves that almost completely. The car is so much smoother and more neutral than before. Even on the factory tires, it can out-grip the NA on wider BFGs.

As far as I can tell, there's no better sways out there that even come close to this price. FM really did a great job with this kit.

As stated before, the front bar is a lot of trouble to change, but FM's instructions are spot-on. Take your time and try not to get too frustrated.

Rough install but amazing modification
Neither the front nor the rear brackets fit in the bolt holes. They had to be filed down like crazy to get them on which was super annoying. Other than that, the rear install was extremely easy. The front, however, was a nightmare! I removed the air box and battery box as many others did (not in the instructions). I don't see how any person could get their hands in there to disconnect the pesky connectors everywhere without this step! I would say about half of my total install time was trying not to break something on the radiator/fan shroud.

Note from FM: We can thank Mazda for the accessibility of the front bar, unfortunately! Thanks for the feedback on the bolt holes, we'll look into that.

Excellent set of sway bars!
Fantastic set of sway bars, very solid materials compared to the rear stock swaybar which I can flex with my hands. Took myself and a friend a few hours to install both, including with new bar end links. The rear took about 30 minutes total and the front took quite a while longer. As other's have said, the fan shroud is a bit of a pain as each connector unclips differently, just take your time and be patient and it'll come undone. Also removed the intake, coolant reservoir, battery, and wheels to make things easier. Definitely would recommend doing on a shop lift if you have access to one.

As for handling, I chose the neutral setting for front and back, the car immediately feels a lot more stable in corners and feels a bit smoother on the freeway in terms of not feeling as many of the small bumps. Definitely would recommend this kit!

Don't wait
This is the car I thought I had bought from the Factory. The sway bars have really made the car perform like I was expecting from Mazda. My only regret is that I waited so long to make the change.

Transformed My ND RF
I just finished installing your sway bar set (front & rear) on my 2017 ND RF. It's amazing. It transformed my ND into the vehicle I wish/thought I'd bought, And, as an added and unexpected bonus, the car rides much better. My wife used to wish she had some kind of grab handle to hold on to while riding in the passenger seat. With this sway bar setup she rides quite comfortably through all the twisties. Let me echo your statement, "If you're only going to do one thing to your ND, this is what it should be."

big difference in driving dynamics, relatively inexpensive,
I am new to a car improvement situation. Got a miata last year and developed 'miatitis'. I was sceptical but 2 unassuming metal rods made a lot of difference. I am impressed.

Worth it
HUGE performance upgrade for the ND. Replacing the pencil thin rear and the pinkie sized front sway bars is the most noticeable difference I've ever felt from a single mod.

Installation in the rear was quite simple. Off and on, no big deal.

Front installation took several hours. It's simple enough to take the air box, battery, and coolant overflow out.
Disconnecting the fan shroud and getting it out was an absolutely not-fun experience.
I was able to remove the OEM front bar without a problem. Disconnecting the fan shroud and removing it was tight and annoying.

Installing the new front bar was a different story. Even with the fan shroud removed and the radiator assembly hanging on by just the A/C lines, it was quite difficult to maneuver the new bar in place due to the longer geometry (adjustable-ness). I am not entirely sure how it got through, but I can verify the back of my radiator has a few more scuffs now.

Reinstalling all the parts taken out was a snap, probably 30 minutes of work...


Again, totally worth the trouble. Even with the club package, the ND is VERY roly poly when thrown through a turn. Currently, with the middle (recommended) setting, the car is more neutral, easier to drive, and predictable than before.

If you're thinking about getting coilovers for your ND, I would highly recommend this setup first for a perfect hold-me-over. (I am).

This sway bar set is a requirement not an option!
Had this sway bar set installed yesterday. Unbelievable improvement. It's a requirement not an option. My 2016 ND now feels connected and stable and no longer unpredictable. A modest investment you will not regret. If you're in the northeast, have Bob and Chris of Main Street Auto in Clinton, MA do the work. They know Miatas (MX-5s) and are great guys.

Best bang for your ND buck
The picture of the white ND exiting the corner says it all. ND's come from the factory with very soft suspensions. This upgrade is inexpensive, and makes a huge difference in the mountain roads (without negatively impacting normal driving). Installed both bars in under 4hrs, and took it for a drive on my favorite twisty back road. It was so much flatter through the turns; NOTICEABLY less body roll. This gave me greater contact patch on the road (which is much appreciated, not having a LSD). I was able to put down more power, and even felt the tail slide a few times - before the upgrade, I had so much body roll that I wasn't able to push it to this point. Just as I was thinking that it reminded me more of the characteristics of my e46 M3, I got stuck behind a guy who was going much slower through the turns... In an e46 330...
I can't recommend this upgrade enough.
Make sure your kit comes with the latest instructions - mine were 2 revs behind and left out an important step compared to the instructions online. Also, read through them fully before getting started - I wish I had broken the front lug nuts loose before I lifted the front end off the ground (I don't have an air impact wrench). Other than that, very easy to follow.
