I finally got around to installing the suspension and rear camber/toe arms today, it definitely helped that my friend let me work in his garage, I was fully prepared to do this in my driveway by myself today, he came through at the last minute.
This was a really easy and “basic” install, dropping the rear subframe piece was a super annoying task only because the Mazda engineers could have made that a lot easier… engineers? Amiright?😂
But it wasn’t hard, really basic with a few tools, it’s nice working on a newer souther car instead of an older New England car, bolts came undone perfectly.
It was initially to low when I first laid her down, so we raised it back up and adjusted the height about 1/2”, I should have gone up 3/4”-1” realistically 😂 I had to turn the dampening all the way to its stiffest setting so I wouldn’t bounce and rub, I’ll get it aligned this week and have them raise it up, I’m done for the day, there is a little noise coming from the rear, I know we double checked all the hardware to make sure all was tight, so im not sure if it’s just because it’s so stiff or if something else is going on, I did just add polyurethane exhaust hangers so the exhaust is more stiff too, I may take them off and add the stock ones back on.
So anyway, this was a super fun install and it feels good to be back under a car after so long.
