The 2017+ Mazda CX-5 is Mazda’s most successful and popular vehicle in North America; with its functionality, stylish body lines and the recent addition of a turbocharged 2.5L SkyActiv engine. However, we think the CX-5 sits just a bit too high…
The team at CorkSport Mazda Performance has a solution with the Sport Lowering Springs for the 2017+ Mazda CX5. The lowering springs were designed with the practical enthusiast in mind by providing a functional and comfortable ride with a 2.1 inch Front & Rear Drop. Spring rates were increased 17% & 32% over OE, respectively. #ZoomZoom!
The CorkSport lowering springs improve your Mazda CX-5’s stability by lowering its center of gravity and stiffening the suspension. This reduces body roll which gives you confidence to enjoy everything from the daily commute to the back country roads.
Get rid of that fender well gap with an aggressive and functional 2.1 inch drop in the front & rear. We accomplished the new lower height without compromising daily driving comfort and maintained the factory setup “rake” so the CX-5 will sit level with extra passengers and/or cargo. While it may sound like a lot, the 17% stiffer front springs and 32% stiffer rear springs ride great and fit well with the OEM dampening, while providing more feedback to the driver for extra confidence and control at the lower ride height.
We tested a number of spring rates and lowering heights to determine the best suspension setup for your Mazda CX-5 2.5T. Pairing this with an optimized natural frequency of the suspension with the different setups optimize ride quality and handling. The final setup of 3.4K front springs and 7.0K 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. With the factory ride height being so high (being an SUV) the CS drop in ride height still keeps your bumper safe from driveways and ensures your OEM shocks and struts are well within their operable length. You may notice a slight rake to the ride height. This is to ensure the car sits level and not too low, even when loaded with 5 adults and weight in the trunk!
The springs are manufactured from high tensile strength spring steel and come with pre-installed spring isolators to eliminate any unwanted suspension noise. Together this ensures long lasting quality and consistent performance. In addition, the springs have our new “CS” blue powdercoating to ensure durability and rust protection.
It will take you three hours to install the CorkSport Lowering Springs with our easy-to-use instructions.
