Mazda 3s 5-Door Suspension Springs (2.3 liter 4-Cylinder Engine Non-Turbo) (Part number and price is for a complete set of four)

Over the years, Racing Beat has designed suspension coil springs that are suitable for a variety of street, autocross, and Solo applications. For the Mazda 3 application, our Racing Beat Mazda 3 springs interchange exactly with the stock springs and can be used for both street or track applications.

These springs have been designed with a modest rate increase of approximately 20%, and will lower the car .6-inch front, and .50-inch rear. Jim Mederer, Racing Beat s co-founder and chief engineer, offers the following insight to Racing Beat s philosophy on suspension spring development: Springs are very much a mater of opinion, we adjust ride height and spring rate based more than any other thing on our personal opinion.

We won't slam, or excessively lower a car strictly for appearance sake. First the car will hit the bump rubbers far too often and that makes the car unpredictable in its handling, also it offers a jarring ride and it is very harsh on suspension components causing them to potentially fail. We therefore make relatively small changes in ride height, usually less than 1. We adjust that based in part on what we perceive the best way of adjusting for good handling.

Our primary goal in lowering the car is handling, and from our point a view, improved appearance is a side benefit. We don't lower the car for appearance, and then take what comes in handling. We are very cautious to not excessively lower the car such that it will cause perceived problems either in safety or unreasonable changes in ride comfort. Finished with a brilliant Racing Beat Red powder-coat paint, these springs for the Mazda 3 application will offer the motoring enthusiast years of handling performance.

Note: All lowering figures are approximate. Actual lowering height may vary slightly from vehicle to vehicle and can be affected by differing OEM equipment packages and the installation of optional equipment.

RE: RoadsterSport Stainless MX5 Miata Midpipe Part# 60-1328: I love the mid-pipe!! Not only is it beautiful, but it makes the sounds coming out of the 'race single' exhaust even better. The two go well together, and it mellows the decel drone a lot. I'm very happy with my purchase.

Just wanted to thank you guys for the great stuff and great work done on my MX5 club yesterday. I could feel the difference in sound and performance right away! It drives and corners awesome now. Can't wait to tell my friends about you guys. I'll be keeping an eye on your web site for other goodies and events as well. Can't wait to try my new suspension out on a auto cross. Will definitely be trying it on some twisty roads this weekend. Just can't wipe that smile off my face when driving this car. Thanks again guys!
