    Just for info these are the Eibach springs fitted.





    Although they have settled down a little bit more now.

    How do you like them overall? Any regrets?

    SA Bill, it would have been nice, if I could have parked next to you, to see the CS spring difference as well.

    KennyC - that looks great. Stock 2nd gen is too high and looks goofy in my opinion. The mild drop looks perfect, like it came that way factory. Now, do I just go for it, or see if Mazda is really making the 2.5T optional next year...

    Damn it. Now I want. I miss my 3 hatch, and this would get the CX a little closer to the untouchable 6 wagon I've lusted for since I bought my 3.

    2 questions. Was stock camber maintained after the install or was an adjustment necessary? Does installing lowering springs in any way invalidate any part my CX-5's warranty?

    You should do an alignment. Angles have changed. You will have premature inner tire wear.

    Camber goes negative on both ends (more in the back) and there is no adjustment for that unless you install aftermarket components.

    Do both front and rear need camber adjustment parts installed? Any manufacturer suggestions on these parts?

    Did you guys replaced your stabilizer links when you lowered your ride?
