There's only one way to find out. If you break down, let us know (with pics). :)

If you don't, then let us know!!

Very good point but are the ones from H & R the same part # for the Fusion and Mazda 6? It may be but not sure.

According to hrsprings.com, they are different PN's.

I'm looking for a balance. I had $1400 coilovers on my last car, and while I did like them I'm not going for that kind of setup again. I need something that is more 'daily driver'. This looks to be a well built kit with a good reputation. Springs alone will cost me $220-250, and I have to pull everything apart anyway. Might as well swap it all out, right?? :lol:

I'm still researching, and debating.... I'll keep you guys posted.

oh, I see, those are only 800 compared to the 1000+ for the H & R coilovers.(I forgot the exact price). Well if it makes any difference, we had coilovers on our White Lincoln we built for SEMA and they were excellent. MUCH more control but not too harsh.

I'm not sure with these, but some mazda6 struts require a slight shave off one of the ends for a snug fit. I forgot where I read it, or if it was something I saw at a local shop. But thats what I understand about the worst case scenario between cd338 suspension parts that don't interfere with the path of the engine.

Now while I have not broken down myself to dish out the coin on the H&R's, KW's, or the Tein's I am going to have to say that I have run Tein before on 2 cars that were not listed as a P/N from Tein and they have fit flawlessly. If I am going to buy a full coil over system (and I will) from what I have read listened to and seen they will fit with almost no modification necessary.

I am buying those only because I have experience with the company and I know what kind of performance I will be able to expect from them.

Point blank if anything when comparing curb weights to the 2 cars a 2006 Mazda 6i Sports Sedan is 3,091 lbs. A 2006 Ford Fusion SE is 3,101 lbs so when push comes to shove we are talking about a difference of 10 lbs overall. They will work and even IF there is any modification it would be so minor that it would be worth it.

There is my imput on this matter hope it helps.

Just a update on this one in case it even matters.......


I just got off the phone with Tein and they claim that the P/Ns are different for the V6 Mazda and the V6 Fusion. They currently do not have anything in the works for the Fusion but they claim that the spring rates will be different. He also checked on the H&R's V6 Fusion and V6 Mazda and they also are different part numbers. So after all is said and done, they have said that the spring rates will be a bit different. So if anyone is going to try that is what they are saying now.
