Hi all, just registered as i have purchased a 2018 SP25 here in New Zealand.
One of the first mods on my list is to lower it (Eibachs see perfect for me), however when talking to various companies it seems they have conflicting info. Some say the Eibachs listed are progressive and others say linear and they all suggest they are a different drop to bm models (30mm/30mm).
Question is, is there anyone with 2018 or i guess 2017 that has done this mod already and can help me out? Are the oem springs progressive or linear? (Dealership and spring distributors dont know)
Not due to pick up car for couple weeks yet so i cant just go and look for myself.

Cheers in advance ?

OEM are usually linear. Aftermarket is usually progressive.

Eibachs are progressive and our Mazda OEM ones are linear

I read that the H&R Lowering Springs are linear.

With the Koni FSD dampers installed the ride is firmer but similar to the OEM ride smoothness.

OE is linear, so w/ the OE Euro Eibachs. Racing Beat is linear, too.
H&R, Eibach Prokit, Tein HTech, Tanabe NF are all progressive.
