Dial in Your Mazda 3 with the Performance Toe Arms!

Control is key when it comes to pushing your Mazda to the limit…that’s exactly what CorkSport has set out to give you with the new CorkSport Rear Toe Arms for your 2014-2018 Mazda 3 and 2013 and newer Mazda 6.  Control, precision, & strength define what the CS Toe Arms are all about; let’s see why. 

CorkSport ASdjustable Toe Arms for your 2014-2018 Mazda 3 and 2013 and newer Mazda 6

The Adjustable Toe Arms overall construction provides durability and control which come from the high-strength steel that is coated in an awesome CS blue finish.  Durability is not an issue with the CorkSport Toe Arms (more on that later). 

Blue Adjustable toe arms for the Mazda 3 and Mazda 6

The Toe Arms Replace the OEM rubber bushings providing strength to your Mazda.  Factory rubber bushings are soft and compliant…great for a grocery getter, but not great for the spirited driver.  The CS design replaces this flimsy bushing with a rigid spherical rod end to remove that compliance and give you a solid and planted feel from the back of the car.   

Pair these with CorkSport Camber Arms and you’ve effectively removed half of the soft rubber bushings from the rear suspension.  You will notice this in how the car feels and drives. 

Lastly, the adjustability of the toe arms puts you in control of your driving performance.  You have more than enough range. from OEM to 2.5+ inches,  to dial in the rear toe of your Mazda 3 or Mazda 6.  Being able to adjust the toe independent of camber and track provides.  You have full control of the setup which can help with handling and tire wear significantly.

Now back to the durability testing.  We push our parts to the limit on the track so you can have confidence with your Mazda.  The CorkSport Powered Mazda 3 TC car, equipped with our performance toe arms, is being pushed to the limits in Turn 4 of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway Road Course.  The track pushes the toe arms to the limit. Enjoy!

Put your confidence in CorkSport for your Mazda needs.  Let us know if you have any questions! Our knowledgeable team would love you hear from you!

FAQs About Rear Toe Arms

What do adjustable rear-toe arms do?

Adjustable toe arms are one of the multiple suspension arms that connect your wheel bearing hub to your vehicle chassis.  The arms allow you to fine tune the angle of the wheel & tire relative to the chassis for optimal performance.  This results in greater steering response, control in turns & maneuvers, and increased tire tread life.

Do you need rear toe arms?

Yes, if you are a spirited driver, racing driver, or looking for more control.   Adjustable toe arms also help resolve the uneven tire wear that often results from aftermarket lowering springs and coil overs.  OEM suspension arms have very limited range or no range to correct the new angles caused by the installation.  

CorkSport TC America Car Racing with Performance Toe Arms

How do rear toe arms affect handling?

Toe arms improve handling by changing the angle of wheels when looking from directly above the vehicle.  In performance, the toe of your tire may point out or in when modifying your vehicle. By having the flexibility to set your vehicle alignment, you are able to adjust the toe-in or toe-out position to reduce understeer or oversteer and improve handling at high speeds or through tight corners.

Are adjustable toe arms worth it?

Upgraded toe arms improve the quality of ride, reduce flex in the suspension, and provide more control in high speed and tight turns.  Aftermarket suspension modifications can often create uneven wear and tear if supporting parts like toe arms are not used.  Adjustable toe arms solve this issue and extend the life of your tire.  In addition, the higher-strength metal provides durability and more responsiveness in handling.

The New Look For Your Mazda CX-50 with Hood Mount Light Brackets!

Looking to turn your CX-50 into a more overland or camping-ready vehicle? CorkSport is happy to help with our Hood Light Brackets for 2022+ Mazda CX-50! We make it easy to add some additional auxiliary lights near the corners of the hood for better visibility when away from civilization. They offer optimized fitment, an easy install, and plenty of freedom to choose lights that work best with your build. Read on for full details, and check out our product page for plenty of images!

CorkSport Hood Light Bracket Kit with Rigid Lights for Mazda CX-50

The CS hood mount light brackets were CAD designed specifically around the tight clearances of the CX-50. To eliminate the need for any drilling or trimming, the brackets mount to the hood mounting bolts and fit carefully in the small gap between the plastic wiper cowl and the hood. There is just enough clearance to prevent the lights from hitting the hood and wipers and keeps the lights very low profile for minimal obstruction to your view while driving. This mounting location is a common spot for auxiliary lights, frequently known as “ditch” lights, and allows for added visibility in two possible areas. With a “spot” style light aimed forward, some additional forward visibility is gained beyond the factory high beams. With a “flood” style light aimed roughly 45 degrees outwards, you can better peripheral visibility. It’s the best Mazda CX-50 hood light mount bracket kit.

Mazda CX-50 with Hood Rigid Lights Installed.

Each CorkSport ditch light bracket is made from laser cut 11 gauge steel that is precision formed for perfect fitment. They were designed with functionality in mind so the laser cut profile has features that optimize their usability. The mounting for the lights uses a very basic hole so most LED pod lights will fit with no issues. Anything that mounts with an 8mm or 5/16” bolt can be used. Simple mounting also allows for plenty of adjustability depending on how you want to aim & utilize your lights. We also include zip tie holes to keep your wiring in check for a clean install.

CS Hood light brackets

To make things even simpler, we offer optional Rigid D-Series lights to go with the CS hood light brackets. You can buy the brackets by themselves and supply your own lights, or buy a full kit that includes everything you need! Choose from spot or flood light with bracket variants depending on your desired lighting. Each Rigid kit includes a full wiring harness and interior switch for a simple install.

The Hood Light Brackets is one of our first “overland” style Mazda CX-50 parts but we have plenty more to come! We hope to turn your CX-50 into a more capable “soft-roader” soon!

The CS Stainless Steel Brake Lines offer the benefits of providing a more responsive and communicative brake pedal feel. This is due to the use of stainless steel in the construction of brake lines. The CS Brake Lines start with a PTFE inner liner that gets surrounded by a stainless steel braid which is responsible for controlling expansion in the line when force is applied to the brake pedal. This better control of expansion leads to an improved braking feel over the OEM lines, which gives you more confidence when reaching the limit. The CS Brake lines are finished off in a PVC coating over the stainless steel braid to help protect the line from road debris and ensure they will not get damaged easily.

Boost Appearance & Handling with the 2019+ Mazda 3 Coilover Kit

Looking for the next mod to turn your 4th GEN Mazda 3 into the hot hatch Mazda should have made? We are proud to introduce the CorkSport Performance Coilover Kit for 2019+ Mazda 3 and Mazda 3 Turbo. Drastically improve the handling and looks of your GEN4 with stiffer spring rates, damping adjustability, front camber adjustability, and lowered ride height. We went back to the drawing board and created a completely new coilover kit design that shares no similarities with our older coilovers! Read on for full details.

Mazda 3 Coilover Kit

The CorkSport coilover kit uses a 5K front spring and 7K rear spring (~280lb/in. and ~392lb/in.) for optimum balance of ride and handling. We went through extensive testing to ensure the springs bring stiff enough rates for novice autocross and track handling, yet soft enough rates for the daily commute. These spring rates have a larger increase in the rear than in the front. This helps to reduce understeer and bring the handling closer to neutral. This also keeps the car having a natural frequency of the rear suspension slightly higher than the rear. This matches OEM specs and ensures great driver feedback and comfort. You can even go for the optional Swift Springs for some added special sauce!

Suspension Kit BP Mazda driving

Paired with the 5K and 7K springs are a set of 30-way adjustable dampers. The damping was carefully chosen to match our spring rates and to provide a wide adjustment range for a variety of vehicle uses and personal preferences. A car on max soft damping has a sportier ride than OEM but is still perfectly comfortable on the daily commute. A car on max stiff damping has a much more active feel that offers great driver feedback when attacking a backroad or when on track. We find most people end up somewhere in the middle, with 10 clicks from full soft being our recommended starting point.

GEN4 Mazda 3 2022 Coilovers

While the CS coilover kit is focused on handling improvement, it does add a noticeable appearance boost. At maximum low, the CS coilover kit is ~2.25” lower than OEM. There is ~2.75” of adjustability in the front and ~1.5” of adjustability in the rear. This puts the maximum high adjustment at ~0.5” higher than OEM in the front and ~0.75” lower than OEM in the rear. So if you prefer a more subtle drop for an OEM+ look we’ve got you covered! Lowering the ride height isn’t all about appearance though, it does make for a lower center of gravity for reduced body roll and increased driver confidence.

The CorkSport coilovers are an easy direct bolt-in for your Mazda 3, with no permanent modifications or special tools required. They can be installed in just a few hours using the full-color CS installation instructions and included hardware. You can be sure the installation with last as all components in the kit are made from corrosion-resistant materials and/or coated to keep the rust away. All aluminum comes anodized while all steel parts are powder coated for years of reliable performance!

Improve Your Mazda CX-50 with SRI Heat Shield

Long awaited; the CorkSport Heat Shield is now available for your Turbo CX50 CorkSport SRI System. Whether you have the CS SRI already or want to get both at the same time, the CorkSport Heat Shield for both Mazda CX-50 with the SkyActiv 2.5T is a great mod to include in your build. Keep on reading to see how the CS Heat Shield is able to achieve lower intake air temps that allow your motor to make power easier.

2022 Mazda CX-50 Turbo Heat Shield

For the CorkSport Heat Shield our main focus was keeping cool air supplied to the filter. The shield was designed to seal off the intake from as much heat produced from the radiator, engine, and transmission as possible. This led to a multiple piece design that is riveted together which allows us to utilize the OEM air ducting which supplies cooler outside air to the filter. The shield does not fully surround the filter because we have also found that there is cool air that also comes from the area in front of the tire and underneath the headlight while driving, helping to ensure that your intake sees as much cool fresh air as possible.

Turbo Mazda CX-50 heat shield for CS SRI

Now with all of this cooler air being supplied, how does it help performance? The basic concept is that since cold air is denser than warm air, your engine gets more air per cycle, and thus allows more fuel to be added to make more power. However, when a car is turbocharged, the process is a little more complicated. A turbo compresses and heats up your intake air and then sends it to an intercooler that cools the air back down. What that means is that the “colder air will make more power” generalization may not be as significant, especially with the advancements in modern turbocharged vehicles. Colder intake air does offer a benefit in the form of less stress on your turbo system. This means that your turbo does not have to work as hard to flow the same amount of air at the same boost pressure. Also a reduction in intake air temps can translate to slightly cooler air exiting your turbo compressor, which helps take some stress off the intercooler as well.

2023 Mazda CX-50 2.5T Intake Shield

With all of the theory covered, let’s get to the real world results! In daily driving tests, we found decreased intake air temps with the CorkSport Heatshield installed. When cruising or when it’s cold outside, we were actually surprised at the low intake temps of the CorkSport SRI alone—there’s actually a surprising amount of fresh air that gets into the engine bay. Where the heatshield really comes into its own is when sitting stationary or driving on a very hot day. That’s when we saw our biggest improvements in intake air temp.

CorkSport 2023 Mazda CX 50 SRI heat shield data

Lastly about the manufacturing, the CorkSport Heat Shield is made out of carbon steel that is laser cut and precision formed. Carbon steel was selected for its strength and lower heat transfer over aluminum. To fight off corrosion, the heatshield is powder coated wrinkle black which gives the heat shield a great look and helps it blend in with the other parts in the engine bay. Both sections of the shield are attached together using stainless steel rivets for corrosion resistance and produces a nice look. Lastly, we include rubber seals along the top edge of the Mazda CX-50 Heat Shield to keep as much heat out as possible, and to prevent any unwanted vibrations or noise.

If you’re looking for the complete package, then CS is the ultimate solution from the air filter to the turbo.  The CS designed intake system integrates seamlessly with the SRI, Heat Shield and Turbo Inlet Pipe
