I found this on ebay and i don't know what to think of them.  Its seems like a cool idea but also stupid. There is no set spring rate for those springs....lets say you compress them 2" what would the spring rate be them. Your suspension can bottom out also if you don't know how much room you have to play with. I am so dam tempted.

Or ask the seller what kind of dampening you should run with them.....lol probably won't reply to the questions..

has no one ever heard of ground control? this has been around for years with great success however those ebay sleeves are made of realllllllly crappy metal and will break.

also the spring rates are likely different at ever single corner because they are simply wound springs..........no thought put into rates so the car will be beyond dangerous.

i have been looking for ground controls for this car forever since you can get what ever spring rate you see fit. but they are not made.



also, PLEASE UNDER STAND that just because something has the ability to lower your car that in no way means you should slam it. i have not seen a single person on this forum state the static suspension travel of the stock mazda3 suspension.......this info should be known on this site for proper suspension setups.

say the car has 3inches of travel stock. when you lower it 2 inches its now got 1 inch of travel.....thats not good....that terrible! now your car looks cool but handels like absolute garbage because its bouncing off the bump stops.
