  1. Coilovers with the lowest drop?

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Suspension & Handling
    Hey everyone, I was wondering what coilovers would be best to go super low. I was looking at some extreme low BC BR series and some websites say that maxed out, they sit 4-5'' lower than stock height... But I emailed BC Racing and they say that the max drop from extreme lows are only roughly...
  2. FS Tein Street Advance Z Coilovers (04-09)

    Mazda 3 Parts - Buy / Sell
    So two months ago I bought a Tein Coilover kit but was so excited to order them for my gen 3 I didn't pay close attention to the generation it was for. I'm an idiot lol. Anyways, wasn't able to get a refund as they received cosmetic damage on the way back to the warehouse. Redline360 was unable...
  3. Post Coilover Install: Front right sitting higher than other 3 corners

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Suspension & Handling
    So my front right now sits higher than the other three corners on my 3 after installing my coilovers last weekend. Is there a weight difference of any kind in the front right that makes it lighter than any of the other three corners? The other three have almost a perfect two finger gap but the...

    For the rear I cant feed the bolt through the shock because it isnt long enough. The area is a lot bigger... how can I fix this or should I get longer bolts?

  6. BC Coilover Rear Adjustment

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Suspension & Handling
    This has probably been posted somewhere on here or another fourm, but I have not found a clear answer. I have lowered my car and have adjust the spring perch on the rear, but have not adjusted the shock as BC says you should do when lowering the car. My question is how much of the shock do you...
  7. ISC Coilover Install Questions - rear install specifics

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Suspension & Handling
    I've installed lowering springs and coilovers on my Gen 2 MZ3 before, and I'm now upgrading to the ISC coilovers for stiffer spring rates. I've searched high and low for hours for a good explanation but I haven't had any luck. The front suspension makes enough sense to me, however it's the rears...
  8. D2 Racing Coilover adjustment

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Suspension & Handling
    I purchased a used pair of these off the forums here. Install wasn't too bad. I adjusted 3/4 struts to the stiffest setting, however the last one seems to be rusted tight and not adjustable at all. Because of this it seems that I'm getting a lot of travel on bumpy roads causing me to rub that...

    I don't know how much I will be able to drop my car without rubbing. I have 17x8 rims on wrapped in 225/45/17 tires. Anyone know how low I can go without rubbing? Thanks. And ps. If there are ways I can modify to not rub at a certain "low" then please tell me about that too.
  11. Another Raceland Coilover Story Begins!

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Suspension & Handling
    I want to start this forum welcoming all the trolls! In hopes that you will make me feel so bad about buying racelands that I will send them back and get something less problematic, regardless of the fact that I will be dead-broke. This will be a thread dedicated to my endless woes of trying to...
  12. BC Racing type BR coilover issues

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Suspension & Handling
    Fair warning, I would encourage everyone thinking about suspension modifications to steer clear of BC Racings type BR coilover. Since my install last weekend on Saturday, my car has gotten progressively worse on two noises, one being a clunk, determined by the install shop (that I trust) to be...
  13. Coilover Supporting Parts

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Suspension & Handling
    So next summer I plan to get coilovers and tuck some tire. Now as I've searched the forum I've learned of different parts that are either vital or add to the ride by being solutions to some problems. I've never seen them together all in one thread so I figured why not make one so I can learn...

    I put my coilovers on about 3 months ago and they been very good to me but lately it started developing this popping / clunking sound ? kind of like "bluuubbb blubbb" its very hard to explain what it sounds like. It only happens when driving on un even roads and small bumps. I also notice the...
  15. Raceland Ultimo Coilover Review

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Suspension & Handling
    2013 Skyactiv Mazda 3 Sedan Alright I looked around on a lot of these forums and posts about these coilovers but I could never find any good reasonable posts about them. So I just went ahead and bought a set just to see for myself what they were like. I have read a lot of the VW forums and all...
  16. Gen 1 Coilover bolt

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Suspension & Handling
    After many many months of lurking around on this forum, I believe it's time for me to post something. I have Gen 1 coilovers on on my gen 2 mazda 3. Now everyone knows by now that you need a longer bolt for the rear struts, the only problem is that I can't find this part. All the OEM mazda sites...

    2010-13 Mazdaspeed 3 Suspension & Handling
    Hey all, so I thought it would be a good idea to let you all know about my experience purchasing/installing these coils as there was a lot of things that surprised me during the install. One, this is pretty obvious but don't go into the installation thinking these bolt on like normal coilovers...

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Suspension & Handling
    Alright, I know everyone has their own opinions, feel free to share . I'm looking for coilovers to give a medium drop to my daily driver. As of now I'm giving a serious look into bc and h&rs, but not counting out ksport or Megan. I understand getting springs and some Komi struts is another...
  20. Are coilover collars supposed to be uneven???

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Suspension & Handling
    Hey guys. I wanted to know if coilovers collars are supposed to be uneven in the front or at all. I'm on some BC coilovers, but the collars don't seem to be even in terms of threads, one side is higher than the other, but the car seems to be even in terms of fender gap on level ground. Any...
