H R lowering Springs for 28821 1 Mazda 3 Fits Mazda 3 VA 30 Ha 45mm | eBay

(incidentally, that link is not for the correct springs. That`s for the 2013> cars. The correct H&R are proving to be VERY difficult to find, so I may just order Tein STech if the linked seller can`t get the springs I need. They don`t list them.)

Cool, thanks for clarification. If the 28821-1 springs fit then I`m golden. Ebay says I could have them as early as thursday (Actually ordered them last night)

Of course!!

And FWIW, the Eibach springs do look and ride exceptionally well, offering a nice subtle drop with little risk of tire rub. I just wanted a tad more drop because, well....it just goes well with my tattoos and dreadlocks LOL.

They should fit if you have the BM chassis. Those are the same ones I have on my 2016 Hatch.

Hey @arathol , thanks for the link, BTW. The new springs will be here tomorrow. I`ll have them in thursday morning.

Going to have to actually start paying attention to obstacles as I finally bottomed out over a speed bump even with the Eibachs....oh the price of cool LOL.
