I don't think anybody even makes linear lowering springs for the mazda3. Maybe a few coilovers have linear fronts.

The only kit I know of that uses a linear spring in the rear is BC. :001_unsure: Much kudos that they did though, the linear spring is not comfortable on the street but the 8k/6k setup is both understeer-free and easy to manage at the limit.

Yes, this is what I'll be going with in the future.

Totally agree! It isn't bad on the street but you have to know that your ride comfort will decrease going into the coilover game...

I've got racing beats and they are linear all day front and back! Comfortable ride imo...
Those are progressive I'm pretty sure. The .5/.7 drop?

You know what, now that I'm riding on Swifts I feel like the ride quality has just about equaled stock for all but the biggest potholes (which I need to avoid anyways, they'll bend my RPF1's). Totally worth it.
