itll probably ride rough and quickly blow out your stock struts. do it right the first time and save yourself the headache...

mine: 93 ZE, clutchmaster clutch, fidanza flywheel, poly motor mounts, HS CAI, HS headers, ractive exhaust, F&R strut bars, ground controls on illuminas, SS clutch line, espec heads/corners and much much more!!
hers: 93 ZE. pretty much the same mods. + F&R drilled rotors, STS, h&r's

Sprint Springs, Tokico Blue Struts, Escort Front Strut Mounts, Estimated 3 1/8" drop in front 2.5" in the rear... Nissan 1990 300zxtt Rims, 16"X7.5" Et45 running 205/50 tread (In Last Picture)





I am starting to get a laundry list of stuff done to my car. Does that make it fast? No! Does that mean i spent too much money on a toy? Maybe. Do i have fun every time i jump in my car and drive? Hell yes.

Finally!

Here is my 94 MX-6 LS with Tokico HP "blue" and Megan Racing lowering spring on 16' FD RX-7 wheels with 225/45ZR16 tires

before:
Bone stock


FDs + Prelude Si lip


After:



Yes the Megan springs lower the front more than the back FYI

If it's ok with the Moderators, here is a link to the swap page(lots of pics and a very good video): Nd28's Goldmember '94 Mx6 Ls Worklog/build - Page 4 - Projects/Builds - Mazda626 Forums go to page 5 for Video

Im running the Megan racing springs with kyb gr2 struts, which is basically stock struts. I also have the 17in Mazda 6 wheels. And to me it rides fantastic and has plenty of wheel gap for normal suspension operation.
