replaced them when you get new strut for sure if you dont want your strut going through the hood

as I said in the other topic, I changed twice ... not yet efficient ! i'm waiting for cusco 415410A (pillowball)
I didn't try to get them directly from Mazda (Mazda shop told me about 75€) ... but I had already lost confidence.


I forgot to precise : strut are KYB excel G NEW ! and mount were craked about 5 000 km ! and springs are Eibach pro kit (-25 mm)

yep i remember you told me .Mazda charges 75 each?
Fact is , camber plate like you ordered (CUSCO are NOT legal for street"
(in Italy at least), and also you cant find here , have to order overseas ( i think are about 300 euros , not cheap ) . other i mentioned "KYB SM5046" is the rear one ( i have still to check it!) -
then .. there is KYSM5044 which i have to investigate

Here the price list I checked with seller :

Quote:
MAZDA MX3 1.6 TYPE EC 1995

KYB KYB AMORTISSEUR REF 333250/ 333251 AV

KYB KYB AMORTISSEUR REF 333253/333252 AR

KYB KYBCOUPELLE REF SM5305 AV

KYB KYB COUPELLE REF SM5046 AR


This is the list I ordered, for sure Number parts are fitable !
(av for FRONT, ar for rear, coupelle for plates and amortisseur for struts)

Yes 75€ each of ordered to Mazda.


EDIT : Sm5044 doesn't exist in KYB catalogue !
