Yup, great place to shop!Image
Danny - I know this is a little old - did you buy in your big haul an idler arm at all for an early RX7 - the one I ordered from Australia for my 1981 came with the wrong bolt holes, just wondering where else I can get one !

Cheers

Justin

Rockauto automatically send parts biased towards the LHD market so be careful when buying idler arms, brake master cylinders etc that are handed.

Hello Dave car I'm.restoreing is a reg 01/10/83 the front crewmember suspension Tec is from.c reg 18/12/85 logbook states series 2 bought discs from motor Oracle in UK hopefully correct I did ring them first could not find wheelbearings from UK so orderd from rock autos so that might be incorrect parts from what u told me oh well bought stabilizing bars& trackrodends too. Have you seen the white rx7elfordturbo how tempting is that all my friend are saying just buy that. Thing is I know if I did my project car would get left so I'm going 2 keep going with that as I find it very rewarding thanks for your advice adrian

If you've ordered discs for a 1983 model from the UK, then you should get the correct parts.

If you've asked Rockauto for wheel bearings for a 1981 thru 1983 12a, then they will be fine.

S2 and S3 use the same inner bearings. S3 uses a larger outer bearing.
