    Q Ford Laser/323/bushes the same as Kia bushes?

    there are a lot of talk in the other forums about the Q Ford bushes for the escort/laser/323 from Oz. they're supposed to be stiffer than the US mazda/ford counterpart. i believe the Q Ford kit comes with a replacement bolt for the pin/rivet you have to destroy to get to the bushes on the linkage.

    are these the same as the KIA part: KKY01-46062



    the last 5 digits correspond with the part numbers in the Mazda parts catalog. these are $1.35 ea. at the Kia dealer. yes I know looks can be deceiving, so just wondering. i've gotten in touch with a couple Kia dealers in the area for a more detailed description and pricing. but has anybody had experience with these?

    so i bit the bullet and bought them from a KIA dealer. good news is they are exactly as described. A firm, nylon bushing to replace the softer rubbery (poly?) bushing at the base of the shift lever. Fits other Mazdas (323, 626, GLC, MX-3, MX-6, Protege 5) and Fords.

    also good news, because you have to destroy the rivet if you plan on replacing the bushings in the pivot fork, there is a KIA part number for that too!

    these correspond to their respective Mazda part numbers and will save you $3-4 for having a KIA sticker on the bag instead of a Mazda sticker. if not, it'll save you an extra trip. hope this helps.
