    Stock suspension?

    Just got this Speed6 a month ago & the front seems way too low. As far as I can tell, it's all stock. It's got 125k miles on it & drives great. Do the front springs in these things sag over time? Seems mine is definitely nose down & wheel gap to fenders looks like about 3/4" to 1" less on the front. I'm scraping the bumper on the smallest of inclines.

    Looks like the springs were originally painted purple. Rears are painted the same color. Wondering if this is stock or not.

    I have never seen a OEM spring from Mazda painted anything other than black...

    The only color usually found on a Mazda spring will be the color code that denotes spring rate, and that is usually done with 2 painted bands like you see on the strut.

    It sure appears to me, between the drop, and the purple color, that this has the factory struts but with aftermarket springs...

    Thanks. That's what I was thinking since the car was sitting nose down & seemed excessively low in the front. Not sure I'm going to do anything about it, but good to know that sagging or broken front springs are not a common issue.
