Hear is the latest iteration of my Mazda6. I now know why everyone likes 8 wheels. They are clean and simple and look great on the 6.

By the way, these are the aftermarket Mazdaspeed 6S SEDAN springs after thousands of miles. They are definitely settled. So, for 6S sedan guys, the car won't sag in the rear unless you run a big sub box or anything. The car is level on these springs and rides great.

Here is a before picture of the 6S. Looks like a 4x4 when it was stock now.

LOL. That's the OTHER part of PA. Honestly, they should divide PA up into two states; the part by NJ, and then the rest of it. haha.

So just adding MS6 springs lowered your car like that? And how does it have to "settle"? Sorry, I'm still new to the 6 scene.

BTW- Those rims look tits on that car. Nice as hell. I want a set sooo bad. Problem is that not two months ago, I just shelled out almost $1200 for those $hitty Michelins and an alignment.

THanks man. Yeah, now they aren't stock springs from a Mazdaspeed 6 car. They are aftermarket springs made by Mazda for the Mazda 6. Stock Mazdaspeed 6 springs won't lower your car. Springs take a little while to settle which means after driving for a while they might lower a bit more then when the springs are installed. The car may end up a little lower then when the springs are first installed.
