Hey Everyone,

I've been researching suspension options for the Mazda5 since ordering my new 2012 last week. I think it might be worthwhile setting up a sticky for suspension options and compatibility with other Mazda / Ford / Volvo models. I'm happy to edit and moderate this thread if the mods would like, though I'm usually online on this forum once or twice a day. If I have overstepped my boundaries as a noob, please let me know and I'll remove this thread.

suggestions are welcome, but perhaps we can start with this:

- Hotchkis: 29mm hollow, 32mm hollow
- Autoexe: 24mm solid, 22mm solid

There have been past theads very similar to this with many details. Perhaps you can search for them to build this. Also, content like this really should be in a table format (easier to compare and cross reference) but forums don't support that.

also, anything that fits a mazda3 / mazdaspeed3 will also fit a mazda5 - the spring rates and damping "May" not be optimal, but they will fit.
