  3. Can I add a 3 mm or 5 mm spacer in rear before rubbing?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Wheels and Tires
    I am on the Eibach ProKit. My wheel specs are 19x8.5 ET45 with 245/35 tires. I tried measuring by putting a bunch of weight in the back to simulate full compression of the suspension but I am not sure if I achieved that as it didn't go down very far. Has anyone tried this? I supposed it would...
  4. How to account for rubbing w/ weight in rear?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Suspension & Handling
    I had a question for people that have lowered their car on springs, have more aggressive fitting wheels, and how they account for rubbing... both when they're solo driving, then when they have a full car or a heavy item in the trunk? I want to either get a 18x8 +35 in the future, or short term I...
  5. HELP! Tires Rubbing

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Wheels and Tires
    I recently bought some BBS Rs' for my car, and when I had them mounted on this weekend my rear tires started to rub against my fenders. I mounted the rims on my stock tires, but I'm on H&R lowering springs so I think that's part of the problem. I rolled my fenders in the hope that this would...
  6. Rubbing? Loud noises coming from right side of car.

    2010-13 Mazdaspeed 3 News & Discussion
    recently after we lowered my car it rubs. Everytime I go over a bump (even if it's little) the front right of car makes a loud apart scrapping noise. It's not my front bumper hitting the ground. It's coming from in the wheel well. Can't figure out what it's hitting. My fender liners are cut so...
  7. Potential Rubbing

    2010-13 Mazdaspeed 3 News & Discussion
    Hey all, I recently installed the Corksport Coilovers and am currently adjusting my height and all of that. Right now, the fronts sit a little lower than the backs just because I haven't been able to adjust that just yet. Up front there's only about a fingers worth of gap and on the back it's...
  8. My TIP is rubbing and does't leave me with a good feeling.

    2010-13 Mazdaspeed 3 Engine and Performance
    When I installed my new HPFP I discovered my CorkSport TIP has been rubbing up against my ECU plastic casing. Its taken a lil notch out of the plastic and left a flat spot on the TIP. I plan to call CorkSport on Tuesday but I doubt they will do much since I bought the part around 2 years ago. I...

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 Engine and Performance
    I've had the SRI and CS airbox on my 2.5L engine for a few months no issues yet, but I am concerned about the rubber arm of the SRI rubbing on the air box. When I installed it I tried to center the SRI tube in the hole for the airbox but no dice. I didn't want to make a cutout in the airbox to...
