Installed my Adustable Rear Sway Bar From CorkSport



Adding another one to the list.
This one is for "Sun Shine State" not being visible at the bottom of my license plate.


Under "I love driving slow" it says sunshine state. supposedly that has to be visible. I only get Tickets in MY city. no other city comes up with this BS..

Got my Window Visors, Finally....

Got my AE Bumper Painted and my side Skirts, Just need to finish the bumper with the Black lip than pick them up and put them on.

Installed AE Front.


So i went to the Shop Thursday... I was there for like 11 hours i think. Didn't get everything done since half the time the other 2 ppl i went with were bullshitting... Our shop is connected to a Hobby store so they went n played with those RC cars that go like 60+ mph and some rc trucks to go off road with. I sat there and worked though.

Here some pics of the day.
Just pulling the cars in...

Lifted and removed tail lights so i can install rear bumper LED lights

Installed CorkSport Air Box

Removed Mud Flaps and other bolts to install Side Skirts.

Took a little longer than i expected but i eventually got the rear bumper off

Wired the LED lights to the license plate light

Slid under the car and installed mid chasis brace in about 18 seconds.

I took off the cover and thought id paint it. Ill take another pic later on how it looks on the car

Since i took off the mud flaps i thought id wipe the front ones real quick and put a sticker on them

Why do you need all the bracing? If you're going with airbags you're obviously not racing so I see no point.

If you pay the right amount of money for PERFORMANCE air bag suspension, you can race with them. like the video the guy posted up. But thats just one reason. i want bags for the aggression. n the bracing is just for the better handling. i dont brake on turns...:p

It depends on the turn but generally yes, that's how to do it.

Im not a racer, im a mazda 3. n im not talking about on the track. im talking about in the streets.
But i know. Thats just how i drive. My suspension is stiff so i can do it like that.

Hey velez the air lift performance product is absolutely amazing... if you were closer to me I would let you give my BMW a whirl.... it so unbelievably mind boggling at the quality. But the price of 4K is out of my price range with my current build on my MS3.... Wish you the best it will be well worth the money.
