Hey Guys!

Can you please help me! Did I understand you right, that the rear lower Trailing Arm (not the Control Arm) is the same as in Mazda 323?? When serching parts, which model do I have to choose? 323 Turbo? 323 Sedan? 323 GT? GTX? GTR?

88 turbo, fwd, sedan. The other models can have some differences depending on the part.

I'm looking for better headlamp options and have ditched the sealed beams for cheap Chinese e-code housings using Cree LEDs. It works, but of course, Hellas would be one way to improve it further. I'd like to know if anyone has ever looked at retrofitting the apparently poor 165mm rectangular headlamp system and installed a Miata or RX7 round headlamp setup? Would a pop up headlamp mechanism swap fit?

The lighting gurus all say the rectangular lamps are difficult to design for what a car needs. There are some very good round housings available if we could squeeze them in.

are there any round assemblies small enough to squeeze within the popup headlamps we now have? of course, the front where the light mounts will have to be modified....
