Koni/H&R riding 14" in front

Postby ourly » Sun Jul 05, 2015 10:25 am

Hello,
I'm riding high in the front after my install. 200 miles didn't settle it.
Suggestions?

Hi,
Lots of threads on this.
Check the koni shocks for sale on this site and note Brians install notes.
Basically dont torque the noted bolts/nuts (highlighted in red on the Mazda TSB) before full weight of the car is applied.
The same effect can be done by jacking up the rotor to compress the suspension before finallly torque setting the noted nuts/bolts.

Dont jack the actual rotor but on the end of the lower A arm nearest the rotor

The Mazda TSB drawing is actually on the Progress Springs items for sale on this site not the shocks.
Sorry, my memory is getting worse as i get older.

I'm with you on the reading everything and a GWR customer thing. I used the progress springs not the H&R on mine but otherwise the same upgrade. Brian's install notes worked for me, perfectly.
Pls let us all know the fix when discovered/corrected. :D

Still sounds like bushings stuck in front. Customers sometimes need a few rounds of the procedure to get those un-stuck before it works.
