    Mazda 3 Parts - Buy / Sell
    This suspension setup is from a 2015 Mazda 3 Sport 4 door with +92k miles on it. I have the original manufacture shocks, struts, and springs. 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...

  4. Suspension clunk after new struts

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Suspension & Handling
    I've had an issue with my 2011 Mazda3 for some time now: 2 years ago I had my struts replaced at approximately 80,000 miles. At some point after that (though not right away) I started noticing a clunking noise from what I believed to be the front passenger side suspension. This clunk was...
  5. Pre-assembling struts, am I missing anything?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Suspension & Handling
    Found a leaking strut while doing a tire rotation, so it's time to replace/upgrade. Looking to do Koni SAS/Racing Beat combo. I don't want to lose much ground clearance and this or Eibach seems best for me. I'm hoping to assemble the spring/strut combo ahead of time, so it's a quicker install...

    Mazda 3 Parts - Buy / Sell
    Found some RB Springs, please ignore this. On the off chance someone is unloading some new/lightly used Racing Beat (ideally) or Eibach springs, I'd like to chat with ya. Not interested in H&R/Corksport as they are too low for my needs. Also interested if anyone has new Koni Special Active...
  7. Struts + Lowering Springs required new endlinks?

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Suspension & Handling
    Hey guys, I lowered my car maybe 4 months ago with Koni Yellows struts and Road Magnet lowering springs. But recently I have been hearing some clunking sounds when going over any bump, big or small at lower speeds. Strangely when I go over small bumps at higher speeds, I do not hear any extra...

    I have a Mazda3 2011 HB 2.5L mileage around 118k. My front struts have signs of oil leak. There's no rattling or noise, but I want to change them before it gets worse. I need suggestions as what are the best options (brand, model, where to buy). I use the car for regular driving, nothing fancy...

  12. 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.
  13. Need to replace struts

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Suspension & Handling
    My 2011 Mazda3s GT needs strut replacement. I was thinking of getting Monroe Quick Struts because they're cheap...but it seems like Monroe doesn't make very reliable products. There seems to be a lot of dissatisfaction from their products. Anyone have personal experience with them? My next...

  18. Rusting Hatch Struts (potential recall item?)

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    Check your rear hatch struts for rust ASAP! I just checked on mine and my passenger side hatch strut has a black plastic cap that is split and the underside chrome top of the strut is all rusted pretty badly. If left unchecked, these may rust through and cause the hatch to fall on you. You...

  20. Struts and Coilovers

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Suspension & Handling
    Not sure the big difference between Struts and Coilovers still reading but if you are on lowered springs, does getting a strut like Koni also lower your car even more? Thinking about getting new 18" wheels but if struts cause even more lowering I might grab 17" wheels for space and for faster...
