Mazda-offered Springs

Anyone go with springs from Mazda to lower their ride? I'd like to see how it looks.

Yeah would be great if anyone could post pictures of their 2 with factory lowered suspension.

hrdm88 do you know what the factory drop is with the factory lowering kit?

Not sure which springs they're using...possibly Eibach? If that's the case, you'd be looking at front 1.2 & rear 1.2.

B&G should be the same drop.

H&R's look nice from what I've seen. You're looking at a 1.5 & 1.3 drop with those.

1.2 drop is too mild, not enough to loose the wheel gap.

If i had to i'd go for the H&R's gives it a staggered drop, giving more of stance look+ a lower drop = win!

what about you?

springs

you should go with the h&r. I have them on my 2 with 17" inch wheels and its a pretty good fit for the money. The best way to go would be with coilovers to get that extra 1/2" but its not really worth the extra $

Looks to be an aggressive set-up, hows does the HnR springs handle?

I would still compress the sprigs more to get a lower ride height!
