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.

Lot of people say these do little to nothing to improve handling but I disagree, it may not be as big of a difference as a rear sway bar but I can really feel the difference taking corners vs how it felt before. Definitely recommend this to anyone looking to improve handling without breaking the bank.
Was kinda skeptical of running a 3 piece front strut tower bar for functionality but after running this for some time I can genuinely say there is a discernible difference in how the car handles with this added to my car. I am not sure how easily noticed this improvement would be on a soft & supple stock suspension setup.. but when rocking suspension goodies like coilovers or lowering springs, and a rear sway bar, with this front strut bar you will definitely be able to feel that difference! I also really like the visual appeal of the front strut bar, its a very nice looking piece with the polished finish on the bar and Corksport plaque.
I dont think my mind is playing tricks on me, this definitely keeps the body more planted when turning. When weight shifts to outside wheel in a turn you can feel the difference.

Looks good and an easy install with noticeable driving improvement. Worth the coin.
I noticed a definite improvement in front end turn in once I installed this strut bar. It makes the front tires seem like they are more connected to each other. I can tell it adds some stiffness that helps with steering control under hard cornering.
The strut tower bar seems to compliment other suspension work nicely while also adding some eye candy to the engine bay. Removing only one bolt allows it flip up nicely for battery removal and to access other parts under the hood as well, very convenient.
Super easy install and looks clean af.
I was skeptical if I would notice a difference in handling, but I did notice it immediately. Ties the front end together and reduces chassis flex. I used to bottom out going over a my parking speed bump. After adding this I no longer bottom out. Also can take twisty roads so easily
Not only does it add some flair to the engine bay but there is also some improvement in cornering stability. Not the first handling mod you should do but it is the easiest to install. Pair together with the lowering springs and rear sway bar for maximum effect.
USE THE CORKSPORT PROVIDED NUTS. The instructions do not mentioned the nuts provided in the kit. It should be emphasized that you need to use the provided nuts. On my 2018 Mazda3 the factory nuts have an internal shoulder and do not grab enough thread with the bar in place. 3 nuts managed to torque to spec. 1 stripped off the top 2 threads of the struts stud. With a little bit of finagling to get past the stripped threads, the provided nut was installed and grabs plenty of thread further down on the stud.
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.

I have a 2015 Mazda 3 what Corksport Coilovers. Should I torque the strut nuts to 23-28 ft/lbs like on the strut mount or 30-35 ft/lbs as noted on the coilovers?
