With that wheel size, the rear needs some lowering yes

Agreed! There don’t seem to be many lowering spring options for the 2019’s yet unfortunately. I only found one, which I ordered. If anyone is aware of more lowering options for an AWD 2019 Hatchback please let me know ?

I wouldn't lower it anymore. Fine line between ricing it and modding. Color looks great. Manual?

I’m not really sure where you can buy these yet, but this video shows some lowering springs by H&R.

Thanks for posting the link, those are what I’m looking for. I can’t seem to access it however, says access denied?

This particular kit is .6 inches front and rear so it shouldn't really give it too much of a "ricer" look. I have had CorkSport lowering springs on a 2016 Mazda6 GT before and it was so low that it was essentially full-on "ricer" which is absolutely not the goal this time. I would prefer about a solid inch of drop in the rear however as my car is AWD and I feel like it sits a little too high in the rear.

I jumped on my PC and the link worked. Thanks again for posting it! A couple quick questions though - first - the description seems to be in German, are they for the sedan or the hatch? I feel like it could be sedan, but that's just a guess, and I'm wondering if they are different for the hatch as I have heard there could be some differences between the two. Secondly - it does clearly say 2wd and mine is AWD, so I'm curious what impact that would have? Not sure if you could answer these, but I figured I'd ask. :)

H & R Lowering Springs for Mazda 3 Hatchback 2WD Type BP 30 / 30mm 28663-1

Not sure if the AWD is the same as FWD. As these are new to the market we'll have to wait for more information...

I appreciate the translation - thanks! I was just guessing on everything but the 2WD. I am curious about the difference between AWD and 2WD, I would think they could possibly require different springs. H&R is a great brand so I would probably return my ISC ones if I could get the H&R here ones soon enough and confirmation that they would be applicable for the AWD model.

Here’s a few more pics before the lowering springs go on in 24 hours. Really liking the look of 19’s on it so far.

Do not buy the ISC lowering springs, they don’t fit and couldn’t be installed. I had my techs attempt to install them today and all they did was waste their time. I even purchased the ones that were specifically listed for the AWD Hatch. Save your money and wait for H&R or Eibach or some other reputable company to release some. I specified over and over again that I wanted to ensure they were for a 4th Gen and was told they were. ?

Flush. No way you could more any bigger without issues.

The fronts are 8 wide with +38 offset. No issues on the front

Also, Mazda roll the guards from factory.
