  3. Springs/shocks vs coils: The Great Debate

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Suspension & Handling
    Since there is never truly a "correct" answer with these questions, I'll gladly take opinions. I'm not going to road race the car. As much as I'd like to play in the SCCA world, this is my only car. The roads are pretty crappy here in SC. I am in no way insterested in slamming the car...

  5. Installed ISC N1 coils, now there is scraping

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Suspension & Handling
    On the inside of my front wheels, there is a metal wedge welded onto the brake line brackets. With my 18" wheels, it can scrape if it's just a few degrees off. I don't think my 16" winter wheels are going to fit. Has anyone else had this? If so, what did you do? Just grind them off?
  6. Leaking drive shaft boots BCRacing coils

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Suspension & Handling
    Hello, I was at the dealer geting an oil change when the manager tells me my front drive train boots are leaking grease. They say this is because I lowerd my car, and it is putting too much weight/pressure on my drive shafts causing the boots to leak. Is anyone else that has a lowerd car having...

  9. Coils or Springs/shocks- beat the horse, need your recommendation

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Suspension & Handling
    So to start off, I will say that I've done a decent amount of research. I still am at the crossroads of which to choose. Here is how I've interpreted the majority of what I've read: Springs/shocks: great choice to lower the car, get improved handling from the lowered center of gravity, able to...

  19. For those planining on putting BC Coils on a 2010 mazda 3 sedan!

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Suspension & Handling
    The front BC coils will go on fine but you are going to need longer rear bolts that connect the control arm to the spindle. Had to order the bolts strait from the dealer. I believe the part number is 9YAO-2A-228B. Here's a pic of the finished product: ill post more pics of the wheel gap before...
