Sorry about taking so long to get back on this matter. The Mazda rear disc brake swap should work. There are a couple differances. The Mazda is a 5X114.3 bolt pattern and the brake hydraulic system is different. With your time and $$$ I am sure it can be done. The front steering knuckles should swap right over. Then you would open a much larger wheel option as well.

Newkleus I like that drop on the 2012. Excellent work.

SPRAYPAINT I believe that the Mazda 3 and Focus have the Ford Global C1 platform. I will check into it. I know that the control arms and alignment kits are the same but I am sure the spring rates and dampers are different. What are you trying to achieve?

Blue5ive Looking good!

Btw, do you have any idea of the cross compatibility of the earlier Mazda 3's and the 2000-2004 zx3 rear suspension?

SPRAYPAINT The cat is out of the bag! I installed a set of KSport coil overs and they fit and ride VERY nice! I have it lowered about 2.5 inches. The hit is the exact same for the 2010+ Mazda 3. I will have pictures soon to follow.

SPRAYPAINT The wife just texted me!!!!!!!! My coilovers are at my house! anyone is invited to come over and help or just watch. I think my house would look sweet with several custom "FOCI" sitting in front of it! My neighbors will like it as well!

SPRAYPAINT The anticipation is killing me! The coil overs should be at my house when I get home. The cool thing is I am off tomorrow so I should have plenty of time to install them.
