Here is my addition, Tokico spring kit with Tokico Blues...I think its about 1.5 inches lower, though with the larger tires/wheels its hard to say.

yea just dont go too low.. i went with a 3 inch drop and with a body kit that shit was wayyyyy too slow scraping all over the place and avoiding potholes was a bitch... my mazda m edition is was the cleanest one around san diego but she had engine failure on pistons 5 and 6 and wouldnt pass smog... =? speaking of which.. im parting her out... i have a blitz body kit... the sides and rear bumper ar in perfect condition and painted m edition maroon... im not selling the front bumper because its damaged but if anyone wants to try to repair it ill send you some pics and give u a good price... i have gts headlightcovers that were never installed aswell as a strut bar which was also never installed and a brand new ecu that cost me $1100 from wescott mazda here in san diego.. im selling it for $750 o.b.o i have many more parts so if anyone needs anything... get @ me [email protected]

I've had ground controls since 2005. I raise the car in the winter and lower it back down in the summer. Never a complaint except this year the set screws on all four corners seized. It's my fault though, I probably overtightened the set screws, and I probably should have put some kind of anti-seize on the screws. I had to get a new set of collars and I'll be putting them on in a few weeks, this time with anti-seize on the screws of course.

They're pretty good in terms of ride. I have Illuminas, so I was able to adjust somewhat to my preference, and it's not going to be a stock ride, but at the same time it's not too far from stock either (if I remember right).

Install could be easy or hard depending on how many rusted bolts you encounter. It's pretty easy to do, you just have to get a spring compressor from PartSource or Canadian Tire (free rental), and everything else is just basic tools. In order to fit the GCs over the Illuminas, I had to grind down the aluminum plate at the top of the strut tube, but I'm not sure that's necessary for all struts.

I would definitely purchase again if I had to, that's the best way to put it.

I just lowered my car with H&R springs. Bought and installed at Corksport. They are really cool. Way to go. Here are some pics

This it he first car ive ever had lowered so i dotn have taht much to compare it to. But its a definate improvement. Body roll and leaning has all but gone away. It seems faster and actually feels even more comfortable at normal road use than stock. My only comment is that the re-bound is pretty high so when you go off a speed bump you get shot upwards pretty hard. But i am very pleased with the results and would highly recoment them to everyone!
