How To Install CorkSport's Front Strut Tower Bar In Your Mazda3 Or Mazda6

It will take you between 15-45 minutes to install your front strut bar. Follow our easy installation instructions to enhance your handling.

I love the look it gives under the hood, it really helps make the space look better. As far is performance I noticed an immediate improvement from the installation of the part, would and have recommended it.
After installing this tower bar, which was a piece of cake, of course, I noticed some more confidence in turning in and general transient handling conditions. Compared to how much the rear sway bar costs and how much result you get for that, I'm not sure the money spent on this strut tower bar is well worth it with a car with little to no suspension modifications. FWIW, I'm running this with only having done a rear sway bar. If you've done both sway bars and springs/struts, you may get more of a reward out of this but it was slight for me. I would still recommend for some additional feel and confidence in handling.
Just received and installed my strutbar definitely makes a difference in handling. Turning is greatly improved these cars do have athletic suspensions this only makes it better. This should be your first buy in suspension upgrades quality piece doesn't hurt the under hood look either.
I just hit 100k on my '14 Mazda 6 so I decided it is time to start with some mods (CPO warranty expired lol). The strut tower bar shocked the hell out of me. If I would have known that the handling would have been this improved I would have bought it when I bought the car. Great place to start for the price. Keep up the awesome work CorkSport!
It's a good looking product that reduces understeer. The only downside is that you have to reuse the OEM nuts. The ones that came with my 2018 GT 3 only have 3 threads on the top half and none on the bottom half.

Since these 3 threads are attaching at the very top of the threading, and there is added stress and vibration, it will eventually destroy the threading that pokes through the strut tower. I had to replace the OEM strut rubber mounts and the nuts twice due to this.

If you want to use this product invest in some locking flanged nuts that are M10 x 1.25 sized.
This not only looks great in the engine bay, but it increases your car's handling by a LOT. The front-end stiffness is increased significantly and the car stays grounded in tight corners.

Installation Video:
This shows how quick and easy it is to install and gives a good look on how it looks in the engine bay.
Definitely more stable in high speed cornering and even just switching lanes. Was mostly looking for a more stable feel after going over dips in the road at high speeds. The car would sometimes steer to the sides. This defiantly did the job.
The easiest mod I've ever done, literally falls into place.
Quality piece, perfect fitment.

Installed this on my 2016 Mazda 6 Skyactiv 2.2 Diesel. (Yes it fits the diesel everyone) The car feels a lot tighter at the front and definately stiffer and the car stays flat through corners even at double the recommended speed signs ! It's probably the cheapest suspension mod available, but also one of the most effective and very simple to install. Highly recommended.
I ordered this for cosmetic purposes and to my suprize there is a noticeable difference in the steering feel.
With out a doubt it feels more stable under hard cornering. It instantly gave me more confidence I wouldnt understeer And the best part was that it didn't make everything so stiff the car just feels flat and numb. I love it lol 10/10
