The 2021+ Mazda 3 Turbo has a lot of the components needed to be considered a “hot hatch” but is missing just a few pieces to the puzzle right out of the box. The CorkSport Lowering Springs for 2021+ Mazda 3 Turbo add some much needed style and handling to your ride. We custom designed springs specifically for the Turbo models to allow for the ride height you want with the added bonus of reduced understeer and body roll. They’re even comfortable for the daily commute! Check out the full details and more pictures below.

The CorkSport Advantage

Stylish Ride Height:

The CorkSport lowering springs for GEN4 Mazda 3 turbo offer a great modified looking and substantial ride height drop. We went back to the drawing board and redesigned the springs to work correctly with the added weight of the turbo engine. For hatchback models, expect your ride height to drop approximately 1.5 inches front and 1.8 inches rear. For the slightly heavier sedan models, expect your ride height to drop approximately 1.5 inches front and 1.9 inches rear. Still have ride height questions? Give us a call we’re happy to help!

Ride & Handling:

Appearance aside, the biggest benefit from the CorkSport lowering springs is improved handling and driver confidence through the corners. A vehicle lower to the ground will naturally have a lower center of gravity which results in better handling characteristics. The stiffer spring rates of the CS springs further add to this to promote less body roll. Finally, the rear springs were stiffened more than the front to help promote more neutral handling and less understeer when at the limit of traction.

Spring Rates & Comfort:

We went through a few different combinations of spring rate and were surprised to find the best combination of ride and handling was actually the same as the non-turbo Mazda 3, mainly due to the same suspension design! The CS Mazda 3 turbo springs use a 3.4K front spring and a 5.9K rear spring. The OEM dampers are a little stiffer to suit the extra weight from the turbo motor which actually pairs really well with the stiffer rates of the CS springs. You really get the best of both worlds, better handling when you want it, yet a comfortable ride for the daily commute!

Fitment & Function:

The CorkSport lowering springs install right in place of the OEM springs with no need for additional special parts. The one caveat is you have to trim your OEM bump stops to ensure you have proper suspension travel with the new lower ride height. With this new ride height, we have had minimal issues with scraping on driveways or speed bumps. As long as you’re careful and take severe driveways at an angle you should clear just fine!

Materials & Manufacturing:

High tensile strength spring steel is used for every CorkSport lowering spring to ensure a consistently performing spring that will not sag over time. Each spring is powdercoated red for a great look and strong corrosion resistance. Finally, the rear springs include spring silencers to prevent any added noises.

2019 to 2021 how to installation instructions for the mid exhaust pipe for the Mazda 3

Car looks great lowered! Suspension is tighter around corners but you can feel bumps more easily. A noticable "click" happens when hitting a speed bump or notiable dip in the road. I'm not sure if it is user install error or just the springs breaking in. Also, when installing, hammering down the knuckle did present an issue. A piece of metal from the paint (from the knuckel) fell down into the hole where the wheel sensor sits. This metalic piece caused the wheel sensor to fail and set off my check engine light. I could not figure out what the issue was, and ended up paying a dealership 300 bucks to figure out that metal was throwing off the magentic sensors. This may have been fixed on my own by using a can of dust off or a magnet to grab the metal pieces that fell down in there. This was no fault of corksport. However, I would like to make the issue known in case anyone else runs into that problem! Thanks!
does exactly what it is designed... eliminated the gap and completed the look of the car

I am concerned these where tested on 19in rims my 2021 Mazda 3 HB Turbo has 18 inch factory Mazda rims, with 18 will it still have that low profile look?

Are the lowering springs for the 21 Mazda 3 hatchback only available in red? I see you have blue ones for the non turbo.
