Red face new to the Mazda fam!

sup everyone! after years of bimmers and vw's.. made a move to Mazda this time around. I've gotten lots of useful info on the other forums and hope to get the same here!

looking to get a better set up in the future. I've seen a lot of mixed reviews on the K sports and I am actually getting the car into a suspension shop this weekend to make sure everything is tightened up and adjusted correctly, probably drop it about a half inch more. I don't think it is too bad so far. I've driven about 1000 miles on it. I am not sure when the original owner put it on but I bought the car with 17500 miles on it. Whatever damper settings the previous owner put it on is not bad. Not harsh or too bouncy. I do hear some spring rattle (or something that sounds like it) over some roads at lower speeds, but no clunking or anything like that. Only on my driver side rear. If everything checks out, I will probably keep it on for about a year to do a better review on my time with them.

Welcome to the forum. Great looking ride. What wheels are you running on? I like them.

My Red Rocket (Rdrokit) I sure do miss her.

Thanks! They are Eurotec LM reps. 19x8.5 all around. The previous owner had them on the car when I bought it so I do not know the ET or any numbers like that.

Will look to trade or sell within the year. Trying to make the car a bit more "mine" :^)
