Lowered Springs

Hi All,

Just wanting to know if there is anyone here that has had a set of Lowered Springs installed on their CX3.

I currently have a set of Eibach Lowered Springs Fitted, and are needing some info on another set that I have here to go into the Car.

I have a set of Cork Sport Springs, which will give it another further drop as such, I am wanting to know if anyone has them fitted and can give some details on ride quality, etc. before I put them in.

Any info is really appreciated.

I have the Corksport springs installed and love them. Gives the car a great sporty suspension feel. I don't know how they compare to eibach's though.

Thanks for the reply,

I have been in contact a few times with him in regard to Lowered Eibach's, but I have also got a set of Cork Sport Coils that will drop it by another 25/30mm, but just wanted some others opinions if they have the Cork's installed before I install them, that was all.

Thanks for the Information, just what I wanted to hear, lol.

My Eibach's are certainly firmer than the standard coils thats for sure, first thing I did notice was under initial acceleration the back of the Car does not dip down, or the front doesn't lift, and as you have eluded to gives a great sporty feel, and certainly better look in my opinion.

Looks like I better install them, lol.

I possibly ask a huge favor from you, lol.

Could you possibly get a Tape Measure, and take down the measurements front and rear on your car, so we have something to compare with.

The measurement to be taken from the Centre Of the Hub(Mazda Wheel Badge), to the Lip on the Guard just like in the dodgy Photo I have chucked the red line on for references.

I will measure my Car tomorrow and Post the results.

check my gallery images they show the Lowered Car with Simmons wheels fitted.

We are not lowering the Car's that far that they are no longer able to drive.
