I'm new to the forums, but I have done a lot of reading on here in the past. I just need advice on what dampers or shocks that go along best with the Manzo lowering springs. I bought and installed the springs about two months ago because they were the cheapest thing I could get my hands on (I'm in high school and I'm really poor). As soon as I put the springs on the front struts they didn't compress very much. They don't ride too bad but whenever I hit a bump I can hear my strut tower slam. I just need some struts that are smaller maybe? I'm not too sure.

The springs are for the 06-07 hatch. I'm pretty sure they also can be used in the Mazda 3 so that explains why the fitment might be a little off. Prior to buying them I did check forums for reviews. I didn't find too much other than it would be an aggressive drop: ~1.5in (probably more from what I've experienced). I'm just wondering if someone had the same experience and if there's a solution other than wearing out my shock absorbers and replacing them relatively frequently.

If there a 1.5'' drop springs, use the svt dampers that'll work for the '06+ cars. That'd be the max low you can go w/ those dampers thou...
