The CorkSport Advantage

Mazda 3 adjustable struts and shocks

Performance Advantage

Struts and shock play a very important role in your Mazda3's handling characteristics; they effect acceleration, deceleration (braking), cornering, and steering response. From the factory, your vehicles damping rates and springs are paired correctly for the desired handling and ride comfort. This all changes when lowering springs with higher spring rates are installed.

Performance struts and shocks with higher damping rates are a critical component when using stiffer springs to bring that handling balance back. You may be concerned that this will have a negative effect on ride quality when the exact opposite is true. Increasing the damping rate to match the higher spring rate will improve all handling characteristics and reduce/remove the bouncy, uncontrolled feeling that some lowering springs can cause.

Easy Adjustability

Adjusting the struts and shocks are an easy process front and rear. The front struts utilize a click-lock adjustable knob located at the top of the strut that can be easily accessed with the hood up. The rear shocks can be adjusted through access in the wheel well; removing interior panels is not required. For lowered vehicle setups, a hydraulic jack and jackstand may be required.

Paired with the Corksport springs, the strut package at max setting in the front and near max in the back is the perfect balance between daily driveability and handling. Makes the car easy to read at the limits and reduces the body roll in the hatch by quite a bit. Honestly my favorite suspension set up in the Mazda3 chassis out of the others I have driven.
Worth every penny. I have had mine on for a few thousand miles now and I am loving them.

The install was super easy. Took about an hour to get all 4 corners in but I was using a lift and I've had my shocks out twice before so I knew what had to be done.

The amount of difference between full soft and full hard is insane! It's crazy how you can go from stock type feel to rock solid and everything between.

Only bad thing I can say is that I have to lift the back up to adjust them but that doesn't bother me one bit.
Great set, love that it's adjustable. Perfect fit, easy instructions and took about an 1 1/2 hours to install.

I have the Corksport lowering springs on my car and am looking to upgrade the shocks and struts in the near future. With this package would they be a direct fit without modification or would I have to trim the bump stops like you have to do with the OE shocks and struts when installing the lowering springs?
