I added the spacers before installing the tires — I imagine there would be some rubbing at stock height as I get slight rubbing (at full lock) with the spacers.
Didn't notice any difference in the rear after the springs other than everything sitting a bit higher — probably a good 2 inches. And yeah, just a direct spring swap using existing Mazda5 mounts. I eventually upgraded the rear shocks to KYB gas-a-just (for Mazda5) just because the stock ones finally let go. Feels much better now. I bought the 30mm front spacers off eBay (some seller in Russia). They sit on top of the strut — pretty easy install.
And thanks regarding the center caps! Yeah, they're Ford/Mazda — specifically from the B-series pickup. Had to drill and tap some holes in the wheels to screw them in as they don't snap to the hub in any way. Pretty happy with them as I don't have money right now for some decent alloy wheels.
30mm... got it! thanks!
Hahah, love it!@AnthonyVerde
- looks like a cat in heat / my wife the night I met her in the club (LOL!)
- but of course I fully expect the springs to settle
- definitely don't have negative camber now lol..
- haven't driven it yet, so we'll see how the settle affects the camber
