Being part of the Scion community they have been a good cheap coilover alternative. For $370 they get people lower than springs but not as low as the $1000 coilovers (like the ksports i have on my other vehicle) and they don't have the camber/dampening options. But I know people who have been running them daily for a while with no issues.

The upper strut mount may be different between models, so watch for that.

I still plan on physically looking at each. But based on your info it gives me hopes. I know few people in the Mazda world so maybe I can see if they have any stock 07-09 MS3 struts lying around.

Are there aftermarket ms3 rear motor mounts out there that we can use? I should probably not be lazy and reread the ms3 motor mount thread. Maybe they would shake the car too much? Darn it, i'll just reread the thread..

Any of the aftermarket MS3 mounts will fit. I find of the 3 that I have tried the TRZ delrin had the largest "night and day" change but will rattle your teeth out off idle

Mazdaspeedforums.org

Speedforums.org

The first of course is Mazda specific, and the second isn't but has a large group of ex MSF members.

Both of these places probably offer a good amount of used MS3 parts, 1st and 2nd gen, and a lot of the guys are both sites are great, with their exceptions, of course.

For MSF, you do have to join and donate to get access to the FS/FT section, their way to weed out the spammers and scammers, no idea how SF.org does their FS stuff, never joined up, since I traded the MS3 in for my Focus.
