I sent a msg about control arms to the fts.fts@msa.hinet.net and got a weird msg back saying "Could not send" with a whole lot of jargon.
Will wait till Monday to see if it got somewhere.


AE, That is strange. "Could not send" means the FTS address was not recognized by your email ISP. The tail end of the week there have been massive internet attacks shutting down web sites, DNS servers and ISPs. It is possible you or FTS got caught in some of that digital silliness that is going on. Hopefully that will get sorted out soon.

Give it a try again on Monday and keep us posted.

Today I was out driving around with my wife. We pulled up behind another Escape so I could show her how completely unacceptable the stock rear arms are (trying to justify the expense with the CFO). :shades:

Cheers, TR

Good campaigning. Hope your bid works. Lol
I may have left out my email was redirected as well and tried to send for 4hrs so it said.
It appears to "windsor4x4@yahoo.com.tw"
Beyond me.
Also said things like "deferred" and "temporarily deferred due to user complaints"
I went to a link and it says that "emails from my mail server are generating complaints"
Looks like I've been a bad boy.
I don't know how. It talks of questionable content???

Nothing to do with you personally mate. Somebody's server upstream from your email is probably on a blacklist.

<snip a bunch of techno-babble>

I say try again. If it still gets bounced, use a yahoo, or gmail, or some other email provider to talk with FTS.

Cheers, TR

Don't expect them to be quick to respond to email. I've done it in the past.

How do you know these parts made in Taiwan for Taiwanese market Escapes will fit other Escapes made elsewhere?

I don't know about not fitting some E.
I think the ones from this side of the world come out of a Japanese Mazda factory. Mine has a made in japan plate.
Also most internet searches come up with that.
I am in Aus so I will hope they fit mine.
Even inside the bumpers it has a mazda stamp and the gearbox has a mazda sticker and code on it.
It is a 2.3l

Re: Rear control arms for Ford Escape

I just made an inquiry on the FTS control arms using the "Inquiry" button.

It was a really odd process. :?

See If I have any better luck. TR
