    Hi All, Mazda fan here wit 2 3s and 1 5 in the fam. Have a 12 M3 GT & 2.5. I am a little confused on models, what differentiates a 3Sport? I am renewing the suspension and brakes and would like to give the car a little suspension week, a mild one. Here in NE Ohio the roads are abysmal so I...

    In my chats with some rally drivers and some other fellow racers it was brought to my attention that in winter disconnecting the front swaybar would help induce some fun oversteer. Has anyone here done this before with our 3rd Gen Mazda 3? The emphasis was on ice driving/racing events but it...

    Hi, My Corksport rear swaybar and a few other bits arrived today in the post. I'm pretty excited and getting them installed on Wednesday. I'm thinking the softer setting will be better for Winter driving. Just curious if anyone has any experience of driving in snow with this setup soft vs hard...

    Hello all, In the coming fortnight I am looking at getting and installing my first performance mod on my vehicle - rear swaybar. I found Hardrace brand on eBay Australia $A245 delivered. It is 19mm diameter. Have people fitted this, and if so, what was their experience?

    As promised, we made a video of the swaybar Install and it's taking a while to edit because we have to sensor and remove a lot of footage because of reasons..... Anyway, the video should be done by tomorrow afternoon. Until then, here's a teaser...

    I am getting squeaky noise after installing the JBR sway bar at the softest setting in my 15 i touring sedan. The noise is coming from the rear at low speed on bumpy roads. I checked that everything is tight. Any idea on what is going on? I also noticed that the rear left springs has two...

    Hi, Just installed the rear swaybar from Corksport with the brackets and bushing from Corksport. The swaybar is sliding side to side when turning the car making a terrible bang-noise in the car. See picture:

    I was going to tackle a spring and rear swaybar install today with the help of a friend, and while the springs were fairly straightforward, we had difficulty getting any kind of leverage to the top bolt of the swaybar bracket on the passenger side. Our plan was to get the swaybar out and the...

    Hi, I installed a Corksport rear sway bar on my '11 3i, and noticed the improved handling on just the softer setting. Is there any reason not to run it on the stiffer setting though? Thanks,Rich

    Catalog - CorkSport Mazda Performance - 360-260-CORK Did anyone see that Corksport redesigned the rear sway bar? I know it used to be a 3 hole setting for stiffness and now it's 2. I'm assuming that the one piece design was better, and would prevent the snapping that had occurred on previous...
