2018 CX-3 lowered into 19” Mazda wheels

Here’s my Akari LE (AUS spec) 2.0L FWD

Lowered on H&R springs
19” Mazda CX-5 wheels
Carbon rear badge, tinted windows, debadged, wrapped roof

There’s some other things too but the look I’m going for is Factory limited edition (not obviously modified aftermarket looking) not actually what they determine to be LE which is just different colour leather seats

Hmmm...
I found a part number for H&R springs but I haven’t see anyone else install them but you. Below is from the website;

H&R SPORT SPRINGS FOR 2016- MAZDA CX-3 GRAND TOURING - 28775-3

Per H&R they lower the front and rear 1.1”. Sorry to say but I’m going to wait because H&R springs kind of suck coming from MX-5 forum.

I have H&R springs in my ND MX-5 and the lap times it puts out are consistent with most coil overs on otherwise similar set ups

I rate them much higher than eibach which are rubbish

They could however have a tiny bit higher rate, but then they would come close to working well with the shocks

This rides same as stock it’s 40mm lower than the factory springs front and rear

in case there is any other CX3 owners that are wondering as to what these springs will do in regard to ride height,

I never measured my Car with the Factory Coils before Lowering, sorry for that.

Eibach Springs

Centre wheel hub to lip on guard --- Front 39cm Rear 39cm
Ground to lip on guard --- Front 71cm Rear 72cm

CorkSport Springs

Centre wheel hub to lip on guard --- Front 36cm Rear 37cm
Ground to lip on guard --- Front 68cm Rear 70cm

I also measured from the Ground to the Top of the Mazda Grill Badge it was 70cm

These were all taken with a Half Tank of Petrol.

This is from the last two Posts in the following Forum Section
