I'm kind of a noob. Suspension Component Question.

Hey how's it going ladies and gents. I drive a 2009 Mazda 3i, and my suspension feels old bouncy, shakes when I go to fast, and makes clunking sounds when I drive over pot holes. I decided that I want to swap most of the suspension. I plan on buying a 14 piece kit. To be exact this one.

So I'm not sure what a complete kit consists of, I've heard of terms like "soft parts" etc. I also know that my car doesn't have upper control arms and that they're sort of integrated to the strut. So my question is, if I want to do a good suspension swap would this kit have all the things I need, or would I have to buy some extra parts?

Much Appreciated! Thanks!

Does your car have factory sport suspension? If so the drop may be ok as is, but since you ordered the springs they should be ok. I have heard of sport springs wearing out stock shocks faster, but again that may depend on how short the sport springs are, H&R shouldn't be too bad on the shocks. You shouldn't need anything extra just for new springs, but get an alignment after they are installed.

What specifically would you like to know about suspension components?

I think the original post makes it pretty clear what the OP would like to know.
