Exclamation GB V3: Sonic Tuning Coilovers!!!

Third group buy for the MazdaSpeeds!!!

This time we are going to skip the minimum requirement and just offer you guys the same great prices right from the beginning!!!!


[/COLOR][/B]

Features:
• Full length adjustment system on lower mount
• Separate ride hight and pre-load adjustments
• 6061 T6 Aluminum alloy construction: lower mount, top mount, spring seat and locks
• 12 level adjustable damper - adjustable dampers allow fine-tuning of the suspension stiffness to best suit the driving condition.
• SCM440 hardened piston rod: special high strength grade material with extra hardening process effectively improves the chances again deformation, fracture and leakage.
• Special formulated oil – stable and durable high quality oil seal can minimize any suspension failures or oil leaking to increase durability.
• Inner polished seamless steel tube – quality high strength tubes ensure the strength of the struts (cylinders). The micro finished inner surface ensures a precise and smooth action, which can reduce the chances of fluid leakage and prolongs struts endurance.
• Mono tube design ensures quick response and comfort. suspension fluid is separated from high-pressure gas in order to reduce damper failure.
• Advanced formulated rubber parts: effectively increase the endurance and help eliminate abnormal noises.
• Forged aluminum alloy top mount: increases the strength and effectively reduces the weight to provide sensitive driving feedback.
• Sae9254 spring: high strength material formed spring effectively minimizes deformation.



MS3 spring rates are 7k/5k
MS6 spring rates are 12k/5k


S3 Version: Camber adjustable top hats (MS3 only) and pillow ball mount.

And the gents over at Sonic Tuning have been awesome thus far. Had a tracking # about an 30-60 mins after I sent the payment info, and they're quick to respond to emails. Hopefully the product lives up to the customer service so far.

I will tell you though that I absolutly love them. they go super low (if thats your thing) and the adjustable dampening kicks ass. I put it 3 clicks softer when Im driving with chicks, and stiffen it up its just me.

After I put them in I went and got a race allignment and now my car tracks straighter then ever and sticks all turns. Super fun.

How much would it drop my ms6 with this kit? I cant drop very much because my garage is underground and theres a big bump i have to get over.

Any negative side effects by setting them on the highest settings?

Its starting to get a bit hard to keep the car on the road as power increases...

Saving my pennies for this... Looks amazing, and Sonic Tuning is great. (Got my AP there, and Ray was absolutely fantastic. Even had me install it in the parking lot and made sure that it was all good before I pulled out.)

I had my Sonic's V3 on my 2012 MS3 for about 12k miles and I'm more than happy with them. I came from H&R springs and that's a huge difference....

Can you show some pictures of how the rear is adjustable on the speed 6? Like does it interfere with the rear bump stop and also how much adjustment is there in the rear vs stock. I would like the ability to go higher than most coilovers allow as well as going fairly low like my H&R springs do but not much lower than that.

So I emailed Sonic Tuning about any possible rubbing issue with the stock wheels/ tires. They said the minimum drop is 1" and that won't create any rubbing issues. Any further and you will need spacers if you keep the stock wheels. Anyone have any more info about this? It sounds straight forward enough. Also, what about camber for the rear wheels? Will I need a kit for the rear and if so who makes a good one? I think the mazdaspeed kit comes with arms.
Sorry if this has been answered before. I'm sure it has somewhere.

The rear height is adjusted by the Spring Perch you see on the right top.

You can maintain stock height or drop down to about 2 1/2 inches.

Rubbing is caused by the high offset wheels rubbing on inner side of the wheel with your coilover's Springs.

As long as you maintain a mild drop, you should not have to use spacers.

I had zero rubbing issues on a gen1 with oem wheels. I also put on 15mm spacers all around and had zero rubbing with a tasteful drop.

Keep in mind, as you go lower, you will have more and more negative camber. You might want to look into some rear adjustable camber arms to fix that.

Gen 2 wheels also sit ~6 mm closer to the strut than Gen 1 wheels, so they're more likely to have fitment issues...

I know people are having issues with 17x9's with +40ish offsets.

Trying to see if anyone has a fix for it at the moment or i will sell these and pick up other coilovers that dont have that issue, the bottom collar tends to rub the front wheels.

Yes Ive seen that picture but thank you. What I mean is where does that spring perch sit? On top of the bell shaped part where the bump stop hits? My concern is that the rear bump stop would be unusable because the spring perch/adjuster sits on top of the bell therefore reducing overall suspension travel. If this is not an issue how did you get around it? Can you post a picture of it installed?

@sonic tuning; @superskaterxes; so i ran the recommend preload setting (1/4'') from hand tighten and the ride was horrible. So i called ST ,and i talked to Ray about it, he suggested that i loosen the spring 1/8'' since the spring might be too tight. And he suggested putting the damping to 2-3 for the front, and 4-5 for the rears. so i followed everything he said. I went ahead and loosen the front spring , so that it only has a total of 1/8'' worth of preload. set the fronts to 3 and rears to 4. It still doesn't feel right at all. The coils doesn't feel like they're damping correctly, and causes the car to be very unstale, when reaching higher speed. Hitting a bump, is nothing but a harsh thump to the spine. It doesn't dampen the bumps at all. ride is very jarring. I came from Ksports, kontrol pro. i understand that coilovers are not going to give a ride quality like OEM, but not what i mean.
I just feel like this isn't right at all. the coils , aren't doing their job at all. So what could i do at this point? I'm not trying to bash on Sonic Tuning, but just want to get things straight. I Decided to go with Sonics, after reading all the reviews here. and wanted to replace the shitty blown ksports, that blew within few months. So i just want a suspension that is solid again!
Thanks
Shayne

Shayne,

Can you PM us your height measurement on a flat surface on the front and rear, from your fender to the ground.

There are few things I would recommend:

Adjust the preload of the spring and your endlink while the car is LOADED.

Have a shop check your suspension install, and have it corner balanced.

Give us a call if you have any other questions.

If this is not an issue how did you get around it? Can you post a picture of it installed?
To install the perch, you would remove the current stock perch with the bolt attached to the sub frame prior to new unit.

Give us a call if you have any other questions.

So I had these installed and the right rear coupler will not fully adjust. And the spring is ridiculously short making my car super slammed low. I have sent an email to Sonic Tuning regarding the issue and asking for longer springs as well. I will be taking my EvoX wheels off and swapping back to stock wheels because it just wont work the way it sits right now. @sonic tuning;

Don't believe so but only the rear driver side will adjust fully. And the car looks absolutely slammed right now

Please follow the instruction that was sent to your email and re-adjust the spring perch!
