HELP! Mazda3 and Focus spring fitment
 
Hey guys and gals,

So I noticed some springs on /\mazon.com that are made by Megan racing. They list that the springs fit the 2006-2007 Focus and 2004-2009 Mazda3. Is this true?

Also, does this mean aftermarket springs for the 04-09 Mazda3 will fit the 06-07 Focus? If so, that would ROCK!!!

Please let me know if anyone has more info on this subject.

Thanx in advance!

They fit my 2010 but lowered it different than what they said. 1.25" in front and 2.0" rear as compared to the 1.5" front and rear stated in info. Car is level though and rides good.

You can get ffrp springs and struts for around 300 and you will know they fit

Do you have the 06-07 springs on your 08? Do they fit without any modifications? Please let me know as soon as possible. I just ordered them for my '11 and I need to cancel it fast if it won't fit!

I just bought Tein Mazda3 springs should be able to see if they fit tomorrow or Thursday. If your asking if 05-07 springs fit a 2008-2011 they can just have to swap top hats.

Did you ever get the chance to install them? Mine come in tomorrow.

The rears fit no problem at all. The front you will need the 05-07 top spring holder. Its wider at the top. Smaller part of the spring goes at the bottom, then you add the 05-07 top spring holder with the 08-11 strut top hats. My front sits damn low for stock so its still stock while the rear is on the coils. I will buy the spring top and put the Teins up front. Here is a pic

Tein advertised a .7 drop in the rear and mine settled to about 2 inches of drop.
