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?
You should be okay running a wheel of that size with that high of an offset.
ive upgraded my wheels from a 205/55/16 to a 225/30/20. can i still use these springs to lower my car?
If im in a 2007 2.3 with speed3 18, 225/40/18 will these still fit alright? And what the warrenty?
If you have close to a stock wheel offset you should be fine.
Hi, I got a Mazda 3 2011 hatch and was planning to buy some springs. But after asking 2 or 3 question. I heard that the back look to much higher compare to the front. I that real? Is there anything i can do to get them at the same level?
The rear has a larger drop than the front.
MS3 2013 2.0 SKY. 225 /40 R18 . Will I need to roll? And what if I add 1/2 in wheel spacer? Thanks
I want to compare these to other springs in regards to stiffness. What is the spring rate on these? Is it the same throughout or variable?
You are going to see around 7% increase in spring rate.
I've got a 2006 3 but I have rx8 wheels and ½inch spacers so my tires stick out, will these still work with my car? Or will I have to roll my fenders?
You may have to do a slight fender roll.
I'm looking into purchasing 17x7.5 with a 35 offset for my 2012 3 hatchback with about 33,000 miles. Will I need to roll any fenders? And should I look into purchasing new shocks/structs? They are currently stock.
That wheel setup should be fine with the correct tire size. As of this answer we have both the shocks and springs in stock.
Do I have to do any modifications to my shocks, structs, etc??? Can I just install the springs just like that?
It depends on the milage you have on your Mazda 3. If you are under 30k you are most likely ok. If you are over 30k installing new struts at the same time as the springs would be a good idea.
What is the rim size of the 3 pictured with the springs? And once installed what is the height from the ground? Thanks CS
They look to be 17s
Will these springs lower my 2007 Mazda 3 to much where I cant get over speed bumps or scrape everywhere?
Normal speed bumps should be fine with the springs.
In previous post you mention adding rear camber plates. Where can I buy those?
Camber arms can be found at this link http://corksport.com/corksport-rear-adjustable-camber-arms.html
Would the stock wheels fit or would i have to get aftermarket wheels with the springs?
Stock wheels will work just fine, most aftermarket wheels if sized properly will as well.
Do you need to install a camber kit with the lowering springs? It won't effect the tires if i don't install the kit right?
You will need to align the car to correct the toe on the suspension. You do not need the camber arms but they are a good idea for making the rear camber even between both sides of your Mazda 3.
will this work on a 2013 skyactiv
Yes they will.
Do I need a camber kit after installing these as well?
You do not need them but they are a good idea for making the rear camber even between both sides of your Mazda 3.
Does this mean that without the camber control arms one side will have more camber vs. the other?
Possibly yes. We have seen it on our shop car and several others in the past.
how many springs come with the 2013 mazda 3 springs?
4 springs total, 2 front and 2 rear.
Great drop height but a small issue is that it's making a lot more noise then usual
Make sure the rear springs are locked into place against the lower control arm. If they are not spun against it you can get noise from the suspension over bumps.
These springs just replace the old factory springs right? Or do I need to by any other additional items to lower my 2012 Mazda 3?
I would look at getting rear camber arms to install at the same time. The factory settings are pretty liberal in range and having the car set the same helps with tire wear.
Do you suggest getting sway bars to install after putting these in
Swaybars do a good job of limiting body roll so they would work well with or without lowering springs. To get the most out of the springs they would help.
will these springs be ok to use for daily driving and be able to go thru road bumps with no issues even on stock 17in wheels
Yes they will as long as you are not running a crazy offset.
Will these work with koni orange strut/shocks?
Yes they will
Do the springs fit the 2010 mazda 3, 1.6 petrol??
We have not tried them on a 1.6L model but they should fit the same. The amount of drop might be different due to weight differences.
If I want to lower the back more than the front can I just switch it and use the 2.25 drop on the back 2 tires?
The front springs will not work on the rear.
Will these work on a 2008 Mazda 3 Sedan?
Yes they will.
Will my car be fine if i put 5ppl in it with this aftermarket springs?
Average size 5 people should be fine. The car would be pretty low though.
Will a camber kit be required along with purchasing the lowering springs? Or can I just do an alignment once they are installed?
The lowering springs can be installed and a factory alignment can still be maintained with the stock camber adjustment.
Will it fit on a mazda 3 2004 sedan ?
Will I have to get aftermarket shocks if I want to put these on my mazda 3?
The can be used with OEM or aftermarket shocks.
I have a 2007 mazda 3 HB . Will these fit? And am I looking for the same lower ride height from stock
They will fit the 2007 Hatchback. The drop might be slightly different but should be in the 1.75-2.5" range.
Can these be used on a 2008 mazda 3 hatchback?
They will work on a 2008 Mazda 3 Hatchback.
So these just swap original ones with these and that's it?
Correct, they can replace an otherwise stock suspension system and that is all that is necessary.
Will it fit on a 2011 mazda 3, 2.5?
Yes it will.
