I can confirm that the suspension bits are Mazda6 parts...... Aftermarket upgrades for the Mazda6 should be a direct fit on the Fusion... but I will confirm this later.

My only concern as far as interoperability goes is things like exhaust, where the extra few inches the fusion is stretched might matter.

No need to worry about taking parts from other cars for suspension, MJH Sound.com will developing springs with H&R Springs and the should be available upon the release of the zephyr.

For those looking for a very high quality adjustable suspension, the KW Suspensions coilover kits for the Mazda6 are a direct bolt in. I also know that Eibach is working on springs and anti-roll bars for the Fusion.

Well....I should be used to my bad luck with Ford vehicles by now (it's all I've ever owned) but it still sucks knowing that something goes bad on a brand new car. Brand new Fusion SEL fully loaded....I put 300 miles on the car....my left front strut is blown. Oh well....I work for Ford so I have learned to not get too excited about these things....but like I said....it still sucks.

I actually just had it replaced at work right before I wrote this. It is a whole different car now. I loved it to start with but now I love it even more. Can't wait to mod it.

I just thought of something about using 6 parts on the Fusion. Isn't the Fusion a heavier car? Wouldn't that mean a Fusion would need higher spring rates?

The Fusion spring rates are actually lighter than the Mazda 6 (and the Zephyr, which is even heavier has even lower rates). They do have a higher load rating though.

But you're right, the weight will cause the car to sit lower than a Mazda 6 on the same aftermarket springs. It will also result in a lower ride frequency, so the Fusion on the same springs will feel more floaty.

has anybody verified if the tokico shocks for a 6 will fit on the fusion yet and also what about strut tower braces and anti-roll bars for the 6 fitting on the fusion?

no need to worry about lowering springs because a few companies already have them out
