Wonderful springs, comfortable yet firm, low but usable. Glad I invested the money
I really love the lowering range these springs gives to my 2012 Mazda3 2.5 sedan. My front and rears are equally lowered. If I drive through a bump, or hole too fast my shocks will bottom out. Lastly, I hear clunking noises on the front when I turn my wheel even sitting still. My mechanic wants to charge me to install some rubber silencers to place on top and bottom of the front springs.

***CorkSport Reply: Joel give us a call, the sound is not normal and should be pretty easy to fix without the rubber silencers.
I've had my lowering springs on my 2013 mazda 3 for about a year now. In the beginning they were great, rode smooth, a nice functional drop. Only issue I'm having now is they're all making noises. Had my car up on a lift and the rear passenger spring is 'loose' feeling, can squeeze it easily. Not too sure what could be wrong, any ideas??

***CorkSport Reply: Heather give us a call, the sound is not normal and should be pretty easy to fix.
Great springs. Comfortable and big upgrades in the handling and ride department. Only downside is a creaking and buckling sound when I turn the steering wheel all the way left or right

**CorkSport Reply: Make sure the spring is seated against the lock on the strut or you will get the noises. ***
I have a 2010 Mazda 3 sport GS 2.5l, and Iam running a 17x8.5 rim with 45 offset and a 255 40r17 Good Year Eagle Sport tire. I had to roll the fenders in the back and the tire easily tucks under heavy load so I have no issues with the back. My question is for the front, my tire is almost to the outside edge of the fender but since there is not much suspension travel/ room into the wheel well on the front right now it's fine. will this spring cut down on suspension travel? and do the front tires on other cars with this spring tend to tuck in past the top the fender opening? Also I noticed the mazdaspeed lowering springs don't lower as much, would that spring work on a Mazda 3?
Great ride height and good handling but after installing I started hearing a rumbling noise when I would accelerate with low rpm and found out that it's coming from my axels...
These springs are great and easy to install. It took about 2 hours and the car was back on the ground and ready to go. When I read how much these springs dropped the car I was excited, but I was totally blown away when the car was put back on the ground. The springs completely closed the wheel cap to credit card fitment in the front, and I'm not running a crazy big wheel in the front. (18 x 9 with a 235/45 18) wasn't expecting that much of a drop. The rears on the other hand were disappointing after seeing how much they dropped the front. There is still a two finger gap in the rear. Wish corksport had the option to upload pictures, because I'd have some up for you guys.
Fast shipping. I've never installed springs before but I'm mechanically inclined. All I needed was a spring compressor I rented from auto zone and with the very detailed instructions and pictures this was a very easy installation took me about 4-5 hours and the car sits and rides nicely. Very happy with the purchase. Also recommend getting the skid plate for the Mazda 3. The $280 it costs is cheaper the mashing out your oil pan or other crucial under body parts lol.
This is the ride height it should of had from the factory. I was given a stern reminder of why I call the spring compressor tool I have the kiss of death. Only almost died once when the tool gave way, and the spring went flying past my head. Can't use the front central jack point anymore, too low for my floor jack, found that out when I took it off jack stands. As for pounding off the steering knuckle to free the front struts - don't, I don't even do that at the dealership when customers need new shocks/springs. I take the lower control arm off instead, and remove the knuckle/strut as one piece, then use a shop press to remove the strut from the knuckle. I did this for looks only, shouldn't comment on performance gain, because I can't tell a difference from stock springs vs. these. I already had stiffer shocks, stiffer sway bars. It's a perfect drop, passes the shoe test with flying colors.
Dropped my '10 gt. Rears seemed to be high on the sedan at first but now that everything's settled the wheel gap is gone and looks sweet. Camber in rear was just at acceptable limits for alignments so no need to buy toe or camber arms! Besides being nice and low taking off-ramps at 50 and keeping flat is fun too.

I have a 2012 Mazda 3 skyactive. I was wondering will these springs work okay with having a 225/45R18 set up with a 38mm offset. Will I need to roll the fenders, or will it cause issues to the tires from going over bumps?
