Looking for lowering springs for your Mazda 3 Turbo but only want a mild drop in height compared to our existing turbo springs? Well that is exactly what we have done with these new springs. They are 0.5 inches higher in the front and 0.3 inches higher in the back (vs the red turbo springs) to provide a less aggressive drop in ride height. The lowering springs still add the boost in style and handling performance to your Mazda that is much needed. They also retain the same spring rates of the previous springs, which we found to be just right for both daily driving and carving the backroads. Check out the details of these springs below along with pictures showing the new ride height.

The CorkSport Notsolow lowering springs offer a drop in ride height that is not as aggressive as the original lowering springs. This gives you another height option depending on how you want your Mazda to look. For hatchback models, the ride height drop should be approximately 1.0 inch front and 1.5 inches in the rear. Sedan models come in with a drop of approximately 1.0 inch front and 1.6 inches rear.
The CS lowering springs provide even more than just a better stance, they also offer improved handling characteristics and give you more confidence through the corners. Lowering your Mazda also lowers the center of gravity which helps reduce the amount of movement seen while going around corners. The increase in spring rate also contributes to a reduction in body roll, so the car feels more planted while cornering. The spring rates were also stiffened more in the rear to help promote less understeer when the car is at the limit of traction.
During the development of the original turbo lowering springs we tested multiple spring rate combinations and came to the conclusion that they should match the rates of the non-turbo Mazda 3. This means that the CorkSport NotSoLow springs have a spring rate of 3.4K in the front and 5.9K in the rear. These spring rates pair nicely with the stiffer dampers found in the turbo model and help control the extra weight of the turbo motor. Out on the road, these springs give you the performance you want when taking the backroads, while still providing a comfortable ride on the daily commute.
The CS lowering springs install just as the existing springs do, which means they don’t require any additional parts and simply replace your OEM springs. Modification to the factory bump stops is the only modification required to fit the lowering springs. Trimming the bump stops ensures that the suspension will continue to have the proper suspension travel. Since these springs don’t drop the car as much as other springs, your Mazda 3 should have minimal issues going up driveways and over speed bumps.
The material used in the CS lowering springs is a high-tensile strength spring steel that is designed to perform consistently without sagging over time. The springs are then powder-coated black to provide a nice look and great protection from corrosion. The lowering springs also feature spring silencers so that during suspension travel there is no added noises.
It will take you 4 Hours to install the Not-So-Low Lowering Springs.

Are there any plans to test this on the Non-Turbo FWD Model? Or any plans for a model that fits the Non-Turbo FWD?
That might be a product offering in the future.
