Is there any difference between sedan and hatchback springs?
Part #'s are the same.
Will I need to buy different shocks in order to run these springs? Yes or no? And if so what shocks
No you dont need to. Although the higher spring rates will eventually wear down the OEM shocks faster than normal. So upgraded shocks are recommended but not required. We have our own set of shocks. Or you can source another set. Konis are a popular choice among the community.
I currently have 18x8.5 +45 rims with 225/40R18 tires. Will these springs cause rubbing or anything?
I had them on my mazda 3 skyactiv sedan. I just change my mazda 3 for a hatchback. Does the springs of my sedan work on my new hatchback??
Hi CS, I recently got some new 17in wheels with 215/45R17 tires for my 16 mazda3 sedan. Since the wheels are smaller in diameter overall compared to the OEM wheels, I'm wondering if I have enough room underneath to drop it without scraping the bottom of my car too often. P.S.: I live in Seattle, so we do get some pot holes and steep slopes.
Hi, I just bought a new 2016 Mazda3 S 5-door Grand Touring...will these springs work on my 2016 model?
Yes they will.
I have 18x8.5 wheels with 225/45/18 tires. Will these springs fit on my car without rolling my fenders or having camber out of spec?
Probably not. That is a wide wheel for sure.
I have mz3 2015 with 18 oem wheels and oem aero kit. Would these springs lower too much with the sideskirts?
No it will not. It will look really good.
No it will not. It will look really good.
No it will not. It will look really good.
I will be putting 215 50 r17 tires on the 2016 Mazda3 iTouring hatchback. Will I have rubbing problems if I put on these springs?
You should be just fine.
Can I use theses springs with 19x8.5" +35 offset wheel?
You are probably going to experience rubbing in the rear with that tall of a wheel.
is the price quoted for 4 spring or 1?
That price includes all four.
Hi Corksport, do you recommend to cut the bump stops or no? Thanks
I wouldn't recommend it.
Now Im confused,it says on the installation instructions that i need to cut the bump stop at least half of it, but youre saying that you wont recommend it. what should i do? im almost checking out this springs and buy it. But i need detailed recommendations. Thanks.
I 100% apologize for giving you a confusing comment. You will need to cut your bump stop. You can cut at least half of it, and if you need to cut more than i would make sure you only cut tiny amounts as to not cut more than you need to.
When cutting the bump stop, how much should I cut it and from which end? Is the cut different on the front and rear ends?
I would cut it to where you are comfortable. Cut a little bit off and check it. You can always cut off more if you need to.
Does the engine size matter? I have a 2.0 hatch
The springs work great on the 2.0 model as well as the 2.5.
Do you think we need a rear camber kit for the lowing?
I have not seen any cases where just the lowering springs have caused too much negative camber. Fitment should be very nice!
Hi Corksport. I have aftermarket rims and the sizes are 18x7.5, +38 offset, I wanna get these springs but do you think I'm gonna rub my fender or no? Thanks
It depends on the tire size but it is close enough you should be ok.
My tire size is 225/45-18, so do think it won't rub my fenders?
With a 225 the tire will have a little stretch so it should be ok.
My tire is 215/55/16. Do you think Im gonna rub my finder as well?
You should not have to roll your fenders.
What is the size of that sticker/decal on the side of the car? I looked and you don't seem to sell one that big. I would LOVE to do the same size/placement on my Meteor Grey 2015 Mazda3.
I'm not 100% sure the size of that sticker, but it's pretty big! I would say go make some measurements on your car, and have a vinyl company cut what you need. That way you can fully customize the sticker to your liking!
If I don't change the shock. How long can the stock shock last after I install the spring and do alignment?
It will depend on road conditions and the current state of your shocks. Normally the stock struts/shocks start to get mushy after about 50,000 miles.
Is it ok for 16 inch wheel stock 2014 mazda 3 IGT? Can you show some pic of low spring with 16 wheel?
Yes they are.
I have 18" wheels, 8" width at front and 9" width at the back, will my tires rubber because of the width on the back with these springs?
It depends on your camber settings and offset of your wheels. If your wheels poke out then yes they will rub.
Looking into these, however I have 20" rims.. Is there any chance at all with my guards being rolled, that this will fit?
It depends on your wheel width and offset. If you are close to stock they should fit just fine.
I have a Curt hitch class I on my 2014 Mazda 3, and looking to get 18" rims/tires. Will this combo and the springs cause any issues going over speedbumps or slanted driveways (like 40 degree angles...)
How much weight to do you plan on towing, ie how much tongue weight?
I only use it for a bike hitch, I carry 2 bikes when I go bike riding.
It should be ok from what I know of the springs. You will be the first to try this though.
Hmm ok. I also have the OEM splash guards, and was told from someone that even the stock air guards on the front bumper scrape with the springs. If I get the springs I'll definitely reply back with my findings.
Hi, will a wheel setup of 18x8 with 50mm offset on 215x45x18 have any issues rubbing?
You may need to run more negative camber to clear the rear wheels.
if i dont cut the bump stop at the rear is there any effect of it.
The ride will be harsh over big bumps.
Having in stock now for hatchback?
They will be back in stock on July 20th.
Hi guys,after springs were installed, how much clearance was left over from the lowest point of the front end of the car to the ground? (inches) thanks.
what size wheels/rim are on the white mazda 3 hatchback in the example pictures? looks really nice with the lowering springs on that size.
It is a GT model with 18 inch wheels. We have a brand new set of those wheels available with tires that have under 5 miles on them available for purchase.
Will this be ok to use for a 2014 mazda3? i'm running on 19"x8.5" with 42mm offset and 235/35/R19 tires... think i'll rub if i lower my car using this spring?
It will be tight but it should be ok. You may need to adjust the rear camber a little bit more negative to gain more clearance.
Do I have to get an alignment immediantly after installation or can I wait a month for the springs to settle? I don't want to align the wheels right after when the springs aren't fully settled yet. Also, if I wait a month, how bad will it affect tire wear ?
You should get an alignment sooner instead of later, but if you wanted to wait a bit you could, you will just have minimal tire wear, but nothing that would affect safety or greatly reduce tire life.
Hi Corksport, Q1. Is there accelerated wear on any other parts after installing the springs? For example do I need to get performance shocks? If not, how long usually will the stock shocks and tires last before having to be replaced? Q2. Do you sell your product in Canada at any distributors? I am trying to find the 2014 Mazda3 Lower Springs here in Toronto. Thanks, M
You can use the stock shocks and struts with our springs, they should last as long as OEM when paired with our springs. Dave wood Mazda is probably the best bet for buying from someone that has access to our parts near you.
If my rear wheels are wide and sticking out of the body will it grind on the quarter panel when I go over speed bumps..etc
It sounds like you are running the wrong offset wheels if they are sticking out. We do not recommend our springs if you have your car setup that way.
are this springs available already?
The springs are out of stock until April 17th, 2015.
Will these springs fit a '15 mazda 3 sedan?
Yes they will, they fit 2014 and up or + models.
is this compatible with 19" wheels?
It will work with some 19" wheels, but we can't guarantee all of them.
im planning to go for niche 245/35/19 x 8.5
If the wheels clear your struts you should be fine. The only way to know for sure is to test fit.
will these springs still give me enough clearance for speedbumps?
You should be able to drive over speedbumps without issue.
Will this let me still use 16 inch wheels and will it level my ride out.
You can use 16" wheels. The car should ride level.
Hello corksport! Do these springs allow one to choose how much they'd like to lower their ride? Or does it have to be the advertised 1.75" and 2.00"? Thank you.
There is no adjustment in the spring height. They will sit between 1.75 to 2" lower without having an adjustment.
A couple things. When I buy this, will it come with a Corksport sticker, or do I have to buy that separate? Also, will this affect my camber?
It should come with a CorkSport sticker, feel free to request one in the notes box when ordering though. It will affect your camber if you do not get an alignment after install. As long as you get an alignment you can maintain factory camber adjustment.
Please,reply the answer for my question. *do you ship to Brunei Darussalam? *exactly when the spring will available on february?
If you look at the shipping estimator on the left, we can ship to Brunei Darussalam. We don't have an exact ETA, they are expected around the middle of April.
