So just like my subject line suggests I am in need of front suspension for my mazda 808, struts specifically.
finding replacement struts and springs has proven difficult to say the least and I was wondering if there is any rx3/808 fans out there that have replaced or upgraded their cars in the past.
any information or websites would be appreciated. and yes I'm well aware of pac.
thanks folks.! :D

First generation Rx7 will bolt in. You will need camber plates to bring spindle angle up.

Pretty sure Rx4 strut will fit. Different pcd on strut top tho. Plenty of springs/shocks/adj gear around, just gotta look. Ebay and google are a good start

What are your plans with the suspension. Do you really want to upgrade the suspension or will a stock suspension do as well?

I dont think i'll be tubing it yet and the rear leafs will do just fine for the time being..
As for the front, a whole new strut would be just great along with a thicker sway bar.
I live very close to the rocky mountains and would like to take full advantage of those mountain passes on the weekends. Ill also be running 15's. I think they look sharper.. 8)

If you still have the Original factory dampers (No inserts), you can also change the damperfluid for a thicker one.
Bikerstores can help you with that, for sure.
