Drove up to Corksport to pick these up in person. Installed them the same day. The drop looked good, but the handling was very harsh and bouncy. Im used to vehicles with stiff suspensions as both of my other cars have coilovers on them. Going down the freeway the rear wants to bounce on every small crease in the road. I attempted to return them but Corksport doesn't accept returns. I would rec'd that you either get coilovers or leave the factory springs in place and get some front and rear sway bars.

Installation was straight forward, You have to use spring compressors to get the stock front springs off of the strut, but not to get the Corksport springs on. Took me a total of 2.5hrs by myself with a jack and jack stands.
The drop is perfect as far as looks. Car sits perfect. But because of that massive drop, the front struts bottom out very very easily. That smallest bumps will cause your front suspension to bottom out on the bump stops. The ride is very stiff even when not hitting the bump stops but that's what I signed up for. My wife took a bit to get used to it but she likes it. She just has to avoid every tiny bump in the road.
As far as the alignment afterwards. Everything was able to be brought into spec other than rear camber as it is not adjustable. The final numbers were -2.2* and -2.5* rear camber.
As far as the GT headlights that a reviewer commented about, all they need to be is adjusted with a screw driver. If you dont, they will be very very low.
Other than the front struts hitting the bump stops super easy, i'm very happy with the product. Wish I could post before and after pics.

Before you buy these springs, you really need to think what you want the CX5 to do for you. I bought them for my wife to lower the car for appearance reasons. The OEM wheel gap was too much. Upon installing them and driving around, we both felt that the ride quality was very rough. So much so that we were thinking about removing them and putting the OEM springs back on. The upside to the springs is they make the CX5 handle MUCH better. There is no roll, the car will hug the corners and you gain confidence in the handling of the car. This is why we have NOT put on the OEM springs. It handles so nice and the stance is so aggressive that it outweighs the rough ride quality. My wife and I decided that if we take a long drive, we will swap them for the comfort. I got an extra set of front struts and put the OEM springs on them for a quicker swap when we plan on going on a long drive. I was hoping they would be as comfortable as the 2014 Mazda 3 springs I got, but they are rough....hence the 3/5. Handling & Appearance = 5/5. Ride quality = 3/5.
