My Mazda3 GT suspension is to hard for my liking. Is there any way of adjusting it to make it softer? I also hope that it will reduce the road noise.

If you would like to reduce road noise, buy some better tires and you can add some sound proofing. Dynomat in the doors helps.

I would say tires. there isnt much in the range of suspension available to soften, its all in the range of making things firmer. something like a 215/50 17 would give u a bit more sidewall.

Check your tire pressures as well, if they are too high the ride will be noticeably stiffer than usual. Should be around 32psi when cold.

I talked to a few tire guys and they advised to go with a smaller 16" wheel and put on 205/55 Michelin tires with lower speed rating. Apparently Michelins are quiet. I will talk to my Mazda dealer if they will swap my 17" mags for 16".

Don't ask the dealer... you should be able to trade + cash on the forums here. Most people would prefer upgrading to the 17" wheels.
