The 2014-2018 Mazda 3 Sedan & Hatchback is a great looking car inside and out, but here at CorkSport we think a bit more “low” only makes the Koda design that much better.
The team at CorkSport Mazda Performance has a solution with our Version2 Sport Lowering Springs for the 3rd Generation Mazda 3. The lowering springs were designed with the enthusiast in mind by providing a spirited and comfortable ride with a 1.75 inch Front Drop and 1.75 inch Rear Drop. Spring rates were increased 52% & 77% over OE, respectively.

The CorkSport lowering springs improve your Mazda 3’s cornering ability by lowering its center of gravity and stiffening the suspension. This reduces body roll in hard cornering which gives you confidence to enjoy the backroad.
1.75 inch drop in the front and a 1.75 inch drop in the rear provide exactly what the Mazda 3 needs to stand out from the crowd. We accomplished the new lower height without compromising daily driving comfort. While it may sound like a lot, the 52% stiffer front springs and 77% stiffer rear springs ride great due to the optimized natural frequency of the CorkSport Springs.
We tested a number of spring rates and lowering heights to determine the best suspension setup for your 3rd Gen Mazda 3. The natural frequency of the suspension with the different setups was also analyzed to optimize ride quality and handling. The final setup of 3.8K front springs and 6.5K rear springs are fantastic whether you just want the look or are all about handling.
As with all CS lowering springs, these are an easy install directly onto the OEM suspension components. The only modification is trimming the bump stops to make up for the decreased suspension travel. You may notice a slight rake to the ride height. This is to ensure the car sits level when loaded with passengers!
The springs are manufactured from high tensile strength spring steel to ensure long lasting quality and consistent performance. In addition, the springs have a CorkSport blue powdercoating to ensure durability and rust protection.
It will take you 3 hours to install the CorkSport Mazda 3 Lowering Springs with our instructions.
