Hey, just wondering if anybody has installed either the eibach or corksport lowering springs on the 14+ mazda 3's trying to figure out which ones I should buy. I want to get rid of that nasty wheel gap but I don't want to tuck wheels. Let me know what you think.
Eibach claims that they drop 1" in the front and 1.3" in the back while corksport says 1.75" front and 2.0" in the back.
I'm hoping to get my wheels flush with the wheel well

Eibach and Corksport are the two polar opposites. Eibach are subtle drop and a pleasant ride. CS springs are the biggest drop available and are pretty harsh. I installed Eibachs first, I wanted more drop and got H&R. I`m actually thinking about selling the H&R and going to coilovers, but not for the purpose of dropping it further.

Bought H&R no regrets.

Perfect drop, excellent handling, not too hard in the ride.

cons, i live in mexico so we have a lot of potholes and bumps so i keep scratching under the car.
so low that i cannot enter again into my garage :(

but the looks worth it.

I have the Euro Eibachs that use a Linear spring rate vs all the other ones that use a progressive spring rate, and I like the drop/performance.
I don't scrape on driveways or potholes.
Look at the main spring thread for all the info you could ever want.
