The GEN4 Mazda 3 will turn heads straight from the factory however we felt the need to take it to the next level. The CorkSport Performance Lowering Springs for 2019+ Mazda 3 provide an aggressive lowered stance so you’re ready for a car show or the twisties. We tuned the spring rates to decrease understeer and reduce body roll, to really get the best out of your 3. These springs work for all models of the 2019+ MZ3, however, they provide a different amount of lowering depending on which configuration you have. So read on for full details!#ZoomZoom!
The CorkSport lowering springs offer an aggressive drop for your GEN4. We have tested on multiple models to best understand how they lower each configuration. For the lightest version (front-wheel drive, manual transmission, hatchback), the CS springs lower the vehicle approximately 1.5 inches front and 1.8 inches rear. For the heaviest version (all-wheel drive, auto transmission, sedan), the CS springs lower the vehicle approximately 1.6 inches front and 2.2 inches rear. Check out the pictures of each, and be sure to give us a call if you have any questions!
While appearance is a big part of lowering springs, we also focused heavily on handling when designing the CS GEN4 springs. Lowering a vehicle naturally improves your cornering ability by lowering the vehicle’s center of gravity. Combining this with stiffer spring rates, equals less body roll and improved driver confidence during hard cornering. In addition, we stiffened the rear springs more than the fronts to reduce understeer.
We tested a few different ride height and spring rate configurations to really dial in the best look and feel for your GEN4 MZ3. We settled on 3.4K front and 5.9K rear springs. Compared to the OEM rates of 2.23K front and 4.20K rear, you can see we had a pretty big jump compared to OEM. This change in stiffness is noticeable however it is definitely still daily-driver friendly and still fits well with the OEM damping. For more info on testing, check out our release blog, linked at the bottom of this page!
The CorkSport lowering springs can be installed on your GEN4 with ease. They are a direct fit into the OEM locations; however you do have to trim your bump stops to allow for the new lower ride height. While this is a decently large drop in ride height, we have had minimal issues with scraping and bumper clearance. Only the worst of the worst driveways have been an issue and we’re even able to use our local drive-thru car wash with no scraping!
The performance wheels shown on the Mazda 3 Hatchback and Sedan are Advan GT 19x8.5+38 with a Kumho 235/35 summer performance tire. For stock wheels and tires a 10-15mm spacer is a good starting point to get a much improved flush look without spending extra cash on a wheel and tire setup.
Each CorkSport lowering spring is made from high tensile strength spring steel to ensure strength and longevity. The springs are also powdercoated blue to prohibit corrosion and give a great look. For the rear springs, we also use spring silencers to prevent any noise and keep you 3 quiet just like OEM.
It will take you four hours to install the CorkSport Lowering Springs with our easy-to-use instructions.
