Re: Suspension for 1st gen vs 2nd gen
I just installed Koni FSD shocks on my 2008 Hatchback. Bought a set used from this Forum, came from a 2008 MazdaSpeed3. The part numbers were
the same as the Mazda5, recommended by Jack Burns. They feel great.
However, in researching shocks for a 2010 on Tire Rack, they do not list any FSD's for either the 2010 3's or Speeds. I'm going to guess that might be due
to weight differences? But, I don't know for sure. It may be that for 2010+ there are some physical differences. Maybe someone else knows more.

I noticed there are a lot more options out there listed for 1st gen cars. Would there be any reason why a set of struts and shocks for a 1st gen car wouldn't fit a 2nd gen car? Is there an actual change in design, or is it just a valving thing because 2nd gen cars are heavier?
