Suspension Is your ride slammed to the ground? Did you lift it so high you need a ladder to get in? Step in and let's talk about it.

Thumbs up Just Lowered My 2006 Mazda 6

Lowered the Front as the wheel gap was 3.5", Rear was 2.5".
I did get an alignment after. I do have a bigger anti-sway bar in the rear.
Now Front wheel well gap is a little less that 2.5". It may go down another 1/4" over some time. It looks a lot better now and handles better as well as stopping better without lerching forward as much.

Looks good. Let us know later what you think of ride quality after few hundred miles.

Note: I have Eibach 350 springs on my Lexus IS (exact same springs as F-Sport lowering springs sold at Lexus dealership, except black color), about 1" of lowering.

The ride quality is still good
The front gap between the tire and wheel well top was just too much and this 1" lower makes the stance look better.

Thanks for the report. Certainly 1" of lowering makes a big improvement in appearance on a sport sedan or sport wagon.

I have scraped the very front of the car going over driveway ends a couple times. I still like it.
