    2013~2016 Broken CX-5 Stabilizer Link

    Hi All, Replaced my brakes for all (4) wheels today and then noticed something that seemed odd. Upon closer inspection, it looks like my "stabilizer bar" is broken for the Passenger (Rear). That would probably explain some of the vibrations/tracking to the left on the road and possible clunks...

    Hi All, I'm looking to purchase some aftermarket underbody splash shield rivets and I was wondering if anyone had any success with ones from Ebay/Amazon? I honestly don't even feel like playing $1.78 - 2.98/for each one, that's just a rip off for ABS plastic.
