    CorkSport CX-5 Axleback Exhaust stock

    Submitted my order before start of business on day 1. Got this back a couple hours later (emphasis mine): I'd asked earlier this year to backorder but CS said they weren't taking backorders for it because: And: What did I do wrong?

    Painted the center caps silver. Made a bigger impact than I expected :devilish: Also added 20mm spacers in the back NOW I'm ready to pick up the kids from daycare.

    2017~2022 Installing front CX-5 sway bar, what to do with steering?

    Had to figure out disconnecting the steering shaft from the rack, and the exhaust at the flex pipe, but I finally was able to get the front subframe to come down enough I could swap out the stabilizer. Man, what a pita, but I'm one step closer to having the sportiest cuv in the world!

    2017~2022 Installing front CX-5 sway bar, what to do with steering?

    Yeah, I've got the rear installed and want more flat. Went ahead and lowered the back of the subframe but I can't for the life of me snake the stock bar out. If I can't figure it out today I'm gonna have to just give up on it.

    2017~2022 Installing front CX-5 sway bar, what to do with steering?

    I'm putting a hardrace front sway bar on my '19 CX-5 GTR. Lowering the rear of the front subframe looks like a must. I can see that the steering rack is going to come along with the subframe. Is it okay for me to lower the rack a couple/few inches? I assume I shouldn't touch the wheels or...

    Largest tire size for the CX-5?

    I thought this site was really handy, too: Rim & Tire Size Calculator. Custom Offsets By my measurements, stock parameters (edit: on the 19" GTR wheels) match those in the link.

    Over-molded steering wheel grips?

    It might make installation a little easier, but you don't have to. I didn't. And this goes on right over the existing cover, so def helps make it thicker. Do it.

    Over-molded steering wheel grips?

    Yeah, they say it's nappa leather. It feels great. Way better IMO than the stock leather wheel, which I thought felt thin and papery. I'm no longer envious of the wheel on the wife's Acura. The perforated leather feels a little less supple than the solid part. You can choose to do all...
