Do you know the inner and outer thread sizes? I can't see to find it on the websites stating OEM part MR548285 4422A002
here is the search list for the Evo IX:
https://www.autodoc.co.uk/car-parts/.../21408-2-0-4wd

There is some variance in the sizes there hmm...

Might be worthwhile to get under the car and check the size with a vernier calibers.
Not sure from the top of my head the sizes

Haha that autodoc site was the site I was checking and why I asked what the size was.
I've ordered some parts for my wife's car from autodoc and they are very very good. The price was insanely cheap for the same parts elsewhere and the service very good.

I don't mind paying more for parts for the evo to get better quality, but I want to be sure I am before paying double.

I guess the best way would be to measure. I will see if I can have a check.

Thanks for the information and advice here.

For what you need, stick with standard. Had some aftermarket ones snap on track, twice!

I actually think this is the part:
https://www.autodoc.co.uk/jp-group/12907415
Which shows the OEM part number 4422A002 which matches the Viamoto site and rosssport.
Now I know these are not actual OEM parts but even the the non-oem patented part from rosssport is £27.60... the ones from autodoc are £8.20.
Two from rosssport = £62 delivered
Two autodoc = £28

I know you get what you pay for but will the autodoc ones be that much worse quality than rosssport when they are both patented parts?

That is a good question, which I cannot answer without testing the parts under extreme load . In some cases some of the third parties are better and cheaper compared to the originals (some companies even specialise in this segment). However back to your question.. I guess you have to try to find out

Indeed I will have a think. Maybe I will get actual Mitsi OEM ones and not patented ones at all. It's not like these are controlling the steering in a 400BHP car
