Koni Shock - Front Rear- 2010-2013 MazdaSpeed 3 (8040-1353 Sport - Prices listed for one shock - Two Required) - These Mazda 3 shocks are intended fro use on the 10-11 Mazdaspeed 3 rear applications. Engineered and tuned as matched components for the Koni MazdaSpeed front shocks, these shocks can be used with either the stock Mazda springs or compatible aftermarket performance springs.
Per Koni, these shocks can be used on standard Mazda 3 applications (non-MazdaSpeed) for a more aggressive damping option.
Koni has been offering high performance shocks for decades and is commonly found on many top performing autocross and track cars. Backed by a limited lifetime warranty to the original purchaser, these outstanding shocks set the standard for aftermarket performance shock upgrades. Racing Beat has used Koni shocks for many of our street and race projects throughout the years and give them our highest recommendation when considering an aftermarket replacement.
As with most Koni rear shock applications, these units utilize Koni's "compress and rotate" adjustment design feature. While an external adjustment feature would certainly be convenient with regards to adjusting these shocks, extremely limited access to the tops of the Mazda 3 shock towers prohibits the use of an adjustment knob design.
