Re: Kevin-Nigel's ugly mazda3 Bottom Pg 48 350z wheels

I guess 5mm it is then. I dont wanna have to seriously screw with stuff just to get fitment on this car. I'm wrapping up mods and about to start saving for the next one. Probably an 08+ wrx wagon

for your fronts with the 350z did you use BC's camber adjustment to the max to make them fit? also what size tires are you on with them?

I think that's right; but do know he has pre- extreme drop BCs, so the springs are a bit taller and I believe the shocks are too.

No idea how much though, no one has done a comparison yet.

EDPs don't actually go that low, my car is the lowest they will go stock.

once you start pulling out collars the ride feels like mush.
I'm all for going a bit lower, but for shitty soft ride quality and seriously damaging the life of shocks under droop is another thing, a thing I'm not interested in doing.

I took out one collar before; lol it didn't last 24 hours, I lost all stiffness in the front, the nose dove like mad under braking, it was bad.

My car feels the same as it did when I had two collars in.

Are your BCs on the soft side? lol

lol

I think I noticed it more so because I run mine at near full stiffness; where everyone else here runs them at around 50% stiffness

I dont know then; but my car felt like crap when I ran it with one collar out of the front, I do know that lol. I rubbed a butt load on the inner lining, and front just felt like mush. I lost ALL stiffness.
