After a few months of research online, I’ve ordered an upgraded suspension. I really miss the way the sport suspension on my Mazda felt and I can’t wait to get everything installed.
For a sports sedan, the TL rides very soft. In tight corners or at higher speeds, the car has a tendency to bob and weave. And although I may be trading off ride comfort for a flatter, more responsive ride, the ride is so smooth right now that it feels a numb and detached from the road.
My upgrades include the OEM lowering springs and struts, which are part of the A-Spec handling kit, as well as an aftermarket adjustable Rear Sway Bar from Progress Technologies.
Second, they only sell the suspension parts as part of the larger A-Spec “handling” kit, which costs a few thousand dollars more because it includes body spoilers, another set of mediocre tires, and a whole new set of rims – none of which I need.
Your best bet is finding the parts on eBay – and with a 25% off discount for accessing eBay through Microsoft Live, it’s a great deal.
Parts arrive in a week . . .
