Well I can tell you it won't. But it'd be a lie. That's a beautiful drop nice and straight from front to back as well.

I like the way it looks. The stock rims and tires don't really fit with it lowered though.

All I know so far is that they are on Eibach springs and running Falken Azenis 225/45-17 tires.

Contact Eibach and ask them if the ones used in the Mazda Rev It Up event are the same as production models.

According to the guy I just talked to on the phone at Eibach, those suposedly are the same as the Eibach production springs.

Hmmmm. I think a 1.5" drop would be as far as I would want. I want a nice looking (clean) side pofile - not a low rider.

You call that low riding? No way. That's not low. It's just the GFX that makes it look lower. There's still lots of clearance.

I felt the ride was too low indeed. It wasn't attractive to me... the ride quality was ok from what I could tell, though... which was surprising.

I'd rather spend the extra money on the Mazdaspeed springs and shocks, and know the tuning has already been done for the car, as well as have a less aggressive drop.

1.5" looks nice. I can't wait to get them on my car.

But I think they would only be for the 6i (4cyl) since Japan doesn't get the 6 cyl

That brings up an intersting point... these ebachs are probably going to be tuned for the V6!!! There aren't two different versions available for each engine.

Since Eibach doesn't make shocks for the '6 yet, can we assume the Rev It Up cars use the stock shocks with Eibachs? Did'ya happen to ask that while on the phone with Eibach, LBJay?
