Fitted these to my otherwise standard 1995 1.8. The shocks (standard Mazda) were replaced a year earlier so kept those and fitted the new springs. Car looks MUCH better without that huge gap between tyres (15 inch rims) and arch. BUT, rear bottoms out/bangs when hitting bumps in the road, even at 60mph on the relatively smooth A12 dual carriage way. I now drive with my eyes on upcoming bumps rather than looking further ahead. Dont know if there is something wrong or something else needs replacing at the rear but it's a very noticeable bang and the roads around here are no worse than anywhere else. On a trackday last week (on smooth surface) everything was fine. Debating re-fitting the original springs as a leisurely drive to the coast last weekend with the missus had her paranoid that the numerous bangs meant something was about to break/fall off !
