    I did read the website about Covid delays. Even if that were the case, they would still show it for order and explain extra there's a wait time, like all the other parts offered. I sent them an email and asked about it, and will update if I hear back. Thanks.

    Apparently, Daox was too much competition for them!

    Despite their response, the Ultra Racing rear sway bar for a Mirage can be found elsewhere & purchased.

    I don't understand what is preventing you from buying one?

    Auto parts stores don't always list things correctly!

    The Ultra Racing rear sway bar (UR-AR19-422) existed long before Daox designed his own. Daox's rear sway bar was designed to copy the one I just mentioned.

    You can do a blast from the past (long before I joined the forum) & confirm what will work.

    Here's a good assortment of bars you can add to your Mirage! Why stop at just one?

    Here is someone installing the bar you & I are talking about -

    Hope this may help & ease your mind. I have a Daox rear sway bar on my Mirage. If it fails, I would buy the UR one without hesitation.

    Well, I bit the bullet and went ahead and bought on of these from an Ebay seller. Not cheap, but I am curious how it will improve handling. I'll let you all know when it arrives.

    The reduction in body roll around corners should be immediately noticeable - assuming the Ultra Racing one is as stiff as the Daox one.

    I was running the Daox bar for about 6 months before it snapped, and I went ahead and bought one of the Ultra Racing ones as a replacement, in addition to a front strut brace. I can tell you that the white powder coating they use, in addition to being a really dumb color (why not just black?), is not the greatest. Mine came nice and pre-scratched, down to the metal. I don't have a lot of faith in the underlying material they used, so I took the parts to a local place to have them redo things properly. A glossy black finish and a zinc undercoating to prevent rust/corrosion in the long run set me back an additional $330 and a couple of weeks of time.

    Haven't got the parts back yet but I'll post my experiences on here once it's all said and done. Hopefully it works as well as the Daox stuff and lasts a bit longer.
