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.
15-Position Adjustable Rebound Damping. Easily adjust your struts and shocks from OE specs to up to 70% higher rebound damping rate to tailor to your specific driving style and comfort level.
The CorkSport adjustable struts are designed for an easy OE fitment installation and operation. No extra components, hardware, or accessories are needed for installation and existing OE components can be used.
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.
This package works well with CorkSport lowering springs and camber plates to make a whole suspension package for your car.
