  6. Reverse camera stops working

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Suspension & Handling
    Has anyone trimed their bump stops after installing Eibach lowering springs along with Konis? The instructions with the Eibachs say not to but I came across a write up on another forum where they did. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
