  1. JBR Adj. Camber Arm Update

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Suspension & Handling
    I took it in for an alignment and both top helm joints were shot. Dirty A.F. and tons of play.. even though they were greased and checked regularly... I really dig my alignment guy.. he talked about how the open helm joints always develop play after a year or two... dust and dirt builds up and...

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Suspension & Handling
    Now that I have gotten my suspension working well, I was considering getting an alignment...since I won't be messing with things for a while. I was also doing 126 mph last night and was thinking that getting things checked out may just be a good idea...for my own longevity...and all.. I called...
  3. Camber bolts or not?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Suspension & Handling
    Alright, I’ve been reading a lot in here and I see mixed opinions on wether using camber bolts for .5 to 1.5” drop is needed. I just installed the eibach pro kit on my 2017 hatch last Saturday. I will take the car for alignment on Friday, I asked the guy if I needed the bolts and he said he...

  6. S vs. i Front brakes? Stainless lines? Camber bolts?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Suspension & Handling
    I am probably buying a 2015 s Touring hatch today. The 2.5 and larger front brakes sold me on it. But I was looking at part numbers and such but I can't find specific info on the exact difference. Just from my research and looking at both cars I am thinking it is just a larger rotor and bracket...

  8. Rear camber kit options

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Suspension & Handling
    To all who have adjustable rear camber kits: What choice did you make for your rear camber adjusting needs? Has anybody tried the Moog (p/n 100303) or SPC (p/n 67415) rear camber/toe kit with the toe arm and extended arm bolt adjuster? What is the true range of adjustment? Does it REALLY...
  9. MZ3 Rear Camber Link Kit question

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Suspension & Handling
    Question--what camber would i end up with if i put the MZ3 camber kit on a stock 2011 MS3 hatch? Why do I ask.... So I just went through another set of tires on my 2011 Mazda 3s Hatch (not an MZ3 mind you). New set of tires, fresh alignment, and noticed from the post-alignment printout that the...
  10. [Help] Problem with camber wheel

    2004-2009 Mazda3 Wheels and Tires
    Hey guys! I bought a car a few days ago and it was in an accident. The car wasn't too much damage and the rim itself is not bad at all just a few scratches. Anyways, I saw that the tie rod was bent and I replaced it yesterday and I fixed my toe. However, at the moment to take the car out of the...
  11. Camber kit for MS3 2012

    Interior / Exterior
    Hello everyone I got my 2012 MazdaSpeed 3 aligned, and the results show camber values of -1.25 / -1.76 (front) and -2.14 / -2.46 (rear). While those values surprisingly (at least for me) are still inside the manufacturer's specified range, the old tires really showed and unusual wear So, I was...
  12. Cheap rear camber arms?

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Suspension & Handling
    Took my car in for an alignment and they said they couldn't get left rear wheel within spec. -3.3 camber, actually increased -0.2. They told me I need new rear camber arms as is common with small mazdas. They quoted me $136 each plus $135 labor. Thought that was bit much so I went to rock auto...

  14. Camber Plates: Any other options besides Corksport?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Suspension & Handling
    I've been looking for front camber plates for the Skyactiv chassis, but the only ones I've been able to find are Corksport's, and those are going out of production. Are there any other camber plate vendors out there worth looking at? The Corksport ones seem alright, but don't offer nearly enough...
  15. Opinions on rear camber arms

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Suspension & Handling
    Hey guys, I am looking to get rear camber arms as I am rubbing a bit in the back. I am thinking about either JBR, SPC, or Eibach. Anyone have any experience with either of these? I am leaning more towards JBR since they are pretty reliable and cost wise it is in the middle of the other two.
  16. Negative Camber in the front

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Wheels and Tires
    I apologize in advance if this is more of a suspension type of question... But this really relates to rims that stick close to the fenders. My question is, how much front negative camber is one able to get from the... is it control arms? If one needs a lot of negative camber in the front, does...

  20. Do I need a camber kit?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Suspension & Handling
    I had my car lowered at Meineke and they did an alignment after this. Is it going to be imperative now to get a camber kit to fix these issues or how bad are they really? Picture:
