i searched "road magnet springs mazda 3" on ebay

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/LOWERING-SPRINGS-05-06-07-MAZDA-3-04-08_W0QQcmdZViewItemQQ_trkparmsZ72Q3a1171Q7c66Q3a2Q7c65Q3a12Q7c39Q3a1Q7c240Q3a1318Q7c301Q3a1Q7c293Q3a1Q7c294Q3a50QQ_trksidZp3286Q2ec0Q2em14QQhashZitem200320874552QQitemZ200320874552QQptZMotorsQ5fCarQ5fTruckQ5fPartsQ5fAccessories

$75 shipped for new... too cheap? 100% feedback tho..

they drop 1.8" .. would you say, go on with it? why or why not? (price, quality, maintenance, etc.. whatever ur reason is)




EDIT:

ok scratch what i said before.. thx for letting me know, classicaddict. ..i wouldnt trust that.

alright, i got 2 choices on my mind right now:

1) http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/_Car-Truck-Parts-Accessories__NEW-DZ-Sport-lowering-springs-04-05-06-07-08-Mazda3_W0QQitemZ120308410755QQadiZ2865QQadnZCarQ20Q26Q20TruckQ20PartsQ20Q26Q20AccessoriesQQcmdZViewItemQQptZMotors_Car_Truck_Parts_Accessories?hash=item120308410755&_trksid=p4506.c0.m245&_trkparms=72%3A1171 (DZ Sport springs, 1.4", $115, lifetime warranty, 99.2% feedback)

2) http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/_Car-Truck-Parts-Accessories__MEGAN-RACING-LOWERING-COIL-SPRINGS-MAZDA-3-MAZDA3-03_W0QQitemZ230321862975QQadiZ2865QQadnZCarQ20Q26Q20TruckQ20PartsQ20Q26Q20AccessoriesQQcmdZViewItemQQptZMotors_Car_Truck_Parts_Accessories?hash=item230321862975&_trksid=p4506.c0.m245&_trkparms=72%3A1171 (Megan Racing springs, 2.0", $147, 1 yr warranty, 99.3% feedback)

EDIT 2: (3/20/09, 1830 EST)

i came across this link and was wondering why its so cheap o_O any thoughts?:
https://www.upscaleautomotive.com/p-18194-megan-racing-lowering-springs-for-03-mazda-3.aspx

Re: road magnet springs

those are not road magnets. i have delt with the "road magnet" brand in the past with great success in ACTUALLY improving handling and i remember the springs being blue with their name printed on them.

just a heads up the road magnet spring rates are a good bit higher from what i remember in one of the threads i read here. this is great for keeping the car off the bump stops and truely improving performance but it will make the car ride a bit harsh.

buy good springs off a vendor here. ebay is way to scetchy for suspension parts. and a 2inch drop is way to low. your going to hit ur bump stops like crazy.

i might hit bumps or might not, dont know.. but that shouldnt be a major issue because there arent many bumps in Buffalo or NYC (if it does happen to touch and i do come across one, i will just take alternate route lol)... i just gotta watch out for potholes

ebay sellers being not trustworthy... are u saying that from experience, or from word of mouth, or just assuming so?

Re: which springs?

I'd just pay a few more $$ and buy from a forum sponsor. Forum sponsors help make it possbile for us to have a forum. And, you can usually buy with confidence.
