    After 60k miles on my CS Springs and Koni FSD Struts, the ride was unbearable. Struts were not designed for lowering springs blah blah blah. Still rode great for years so there. With some points earned, I scored a set. My techs installed it at my dealer with new oem bumpstops, mounts and bearings. They also installed my LCA bushings upgrades, oem was wasted. The ride is the ride I missed for years. Nice ride. Now to mess with stiffness. Set to 6 clicks per recommendation. Very happy.
    I must say these are the best dampers I have installed on my Speed 3. I combined the Corksport lowering springs for a package deal. The install was easy. No issues. Everything fit just as it should, just as every other purchase I have made from Corksport. I recently replaced a set of aging Koni Yellow dampers and Cobb springs with a set of Bilstein B14 coilovers. Bad move. The Bilsteins were so bouncy on normal everyday driving I could not stand driivng my car. I couldn’t believe it given the weight their brand name caries. It is hard to believe how much better the Corksport suspension feels. They are just as stiff as the Koni’s were, but much more compliant over sharp edges and road irregularities. I currently have them set to 10 clicks in front and 9 clicks in back. The car feels absolutely planted, whether on some twisty backroads or on the highway at speed. Great products. Thank you, Corksport!
    Pretty quick install and wow, I had no idea exactly how bad my OEM struts were. Great replacement with more than enough capability for everyday driving. The adjustables are easy as can be to adjust and the bushings have much better resilience to them then the originals when those were new. Feels like floating through corners, great parts.
    Out of the box the rear shock mounting bolt sheared during installation at 14ft lbs (directions list 18ft lbs as the recommended torque). Definitely thinking I should have went with a different brand now.
    Installed these on my racing beat springs (sorry corksport) after I convinced myself that my OE shocks and struts were worn out. I was very impressed with how comfortably they rode on the lower settings. I didn't realize how underdamped my system was before. What really impressed me though was when I took my car on the Suches loop in North GA over the weekend. I cranked the stiffness up and holy cow, it was a different car. My 2.5 mz3 was embarrassing by friends wrx and a focus st in the corners. They had me on the straights but it was so easy to get right on their bumper when it got twisty again. Very happy, and very impressed. Thanks Corksport!
    One of my better "splurge" decisions in a long time. These turn the car from feeling like it really is 7 years old to seeming like I just bought the thing yesterday, from a guy who really knew his stuff. The adjustability is fantastic, such a good array of dampening, set it to 11 F and 9 R and it's perfect for me, actually smoother than my stock suspension. Paired with CS springs you cannot go wrong with supreme ride height, daily drivability and the Industry leaders' guarantee of satisfaction. 11/10 IGN.
    Your new struts have survived full winter mode up here in Edmonton, Alberta...that is saying something from a product testing scenario: -30 degrees celcius is no joke in our winter months!
    I'm on eibach sport line springs, would these help me go an inch lower from stock struts/shocks?

    CorkSport Reply:Check out the FAQ tab for an answer to this question.
    Just installed these yesterday, and they work better than I could have imagined with Swift springs on my 2011 MS3.

    My stock shocks and struts had 77K miles on them and couldn't dampen the Swift springs effectively, I was constantly bottoming out the shocks during everyday driving.

    With these: PROBLEM SOLVED! Even on the softest setting, no more harsh bottoming out, excellent rebound control, nice upgrade from the OEM shocks/struts. On firmer settings, the ride tightens up predictably, but NEVER gets too harsh even when I set them at "15" just to see how they felt. I'll probably run them in the "8-10" range for daily driving and never look back. Great upgrade for the MS3!
    Will these fit a '06. Sedan. 3?

    CorkSport Reply:They fit all models and 2004-2013 years.

    Asked by Luis | 09/02/2017, 09:30 AM | 1 answer(s)

    So these will lower the car if I'm on your lowering springs? If so, by how much? Or do they keep the height at which the lowering springs are currently at?

    So this damper won't change the height difference? Especially in the front? I'm currently on swift springs and other shocks like konis would raise the front a little

    Really interested in these. Do I need to buy new bump stops for these? or do they come with them? Thanks

    Asked by Jake G. | 03/11/2016, 10:01 AM | 1 answer(s)

    When adjusting the damp levels, is it a dial you twist or are there fixed notches so that both sides will be even, if that makes sense.
