Racing Beat Sway Bars - Production
The Racing Beat solid Miata rear sway bar is ideally matched to perform with our wide selection of front sway bars. While the Racing Beat solid rear bar can be fitted on any 1990-2005 Miata application, we do not recommend the use of this bar on the 2001-05 Miata models. Our testing has shown that the 2001-05 Miata exhibits low-speed oversteer that can be corrected by the addition of only a larger front sway bar. For the 2001-05 Miata application we recommend our 1.25" front Miata tubular sway bar. We have found that the use of this larger front sway bar offers a more "balanced" handling characteristic for this particular chassis.
Racing Beat has refined 40 years of racing experience and undisputed successes into the design of our Miata suspension components. From a MotorTrend Magazine (RB 1990 Miata, June, 1993) all-time slalom record (73.6 MPH) to a Sport Compact Car (RB 1999 Miata ) skidpad record (1.1g), Racing Beat suspension components have proven themselves where it counts, on the track.
The diameter of the Racing Beat rear bar is 5/8" (16mm), and weighs 3.5 lbs. (Stock comparison: 11 or 12 mm, diameter, 2.2 lbs.) and features two (2) endlink attachment holes. Each sway bar is supplied with replacement urethane bushings, lateral bar stopper bushings & clamps, Prothane grease, and detailed installation instructions.

When adding high performance suspension components to any vehicle, the result is an increased demand on the vehicle's stock components. We have designed these high performance sway bar components to complement and further enhance your vehicle's performance. We strongly recommend you consider your specific driving requirements when upgrading your vehicle's suspension and select components accordingly.
