I got mine second hand mate so not really sure or how to get them sorry :(
Pity. Any photos of the bracket?
It's an American dude on the RSX forum who makes them.

Shoot me a PM if you would like his email address. I have it in gmail I am sure and can give you it when I find it.

they won't fit unless you have a full arch roll and around - 1.8 degree negative camber at the rear. if your ponly lowered 20 mm or so and run some stretched tyres you'd get away with it but you'll not do much for your handling with stretched tyres :thumbup:
