There was nothing wrong with them, no leaks, and they performed well. The reason I am selling these is because I just installed a new setup to lower my...

It happens often and did not occur prior to installing the shocks. I did not replace anything except the shocks. My mechanic replaced the shock mounts about 4 to 6...

  5. Corksport Springs on Stock Shocks

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Suspension & Handling
    Hey guys I've been sitting on corksport springs on stock struts since I think 30k. I'm now at 72k and one of the struts have a small leak. The ride quality has degraded a little over time but nothing too bad. I can't tell half the times if it's the shocks or the horrible roads in Hawaii. I...

  9. Springs vs Shocks VS Previous setup

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Suspension & Handling
    So my 16 sport had a Knoi FSD / H&R setup and I loved it, I very recently moved to a 2018 GT Premium (all the spaceship stuff + Manual!) and was able to salvage my CS exhaust, intake and wheels. Suspension is a bit more complicated so I had to give up somewhere. So in starting part-way over and...

    Fellas, I had my Mazda up on jackstands to remove the front rotors and have them resurfaced.

  16. CorkSport adjustable shocks and struts?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Suspension & Handling
    Hi all, Was wondering if anyone or knows someone who has used the CS adjustable shocks and struts? Looking into these as an alternative to the usual Koni, Bilstien, ect. They also happen to be 10% off the original price. Could be a steal at $450 for the set. Any thoughts? Thanks.
