Improved Straight-Line Stability and Less Vibration

New suspension components for the facelift Mazda 6 are introduced to provide better overall handling stability, great steering response and less vibration. The high-mount double wishbone front suspension gets new front stabilizer bushes with a lower spring constant. These deliver more feedback when the steering wheel is first turned and contribute to better straight-line stability. The multi-link rear suspension now has new hub mounting bolts that are more rigid than before, which helps make the rear more stable during steering operations. Engineers also introduced a new location for the recesses on the crossmember bushes at the back axle. They are now placed further inwards, which increases rear stability during braking, and helps the crossmember better resist vibration.
