They do transmit more noise into the cabin of my 2007 Mazdaspeed 3, but the adjustable dampening is the best part. Removes some/most of the "floatiness" of the original suspension. Note however that the rears require REMOVAL to be adjusted. VERY VERY inconvenient. It takes an hour to remove-adjust-replace....at least! So its only useful if you have the tools and ability. Otherwise the rear adjustment is worthless, as paying someone will cost you $100s per adjustment. Also the adjustments on the rears are only made by vague TURNS of the shock. IF you dont CAREFULLY note how many turns you made you could re-adjust incorrectly and you wont know until you drive and test. The fronts are easy to adjust...10 seconds per side! But again, no # markings or clicks to know how far you have adjusted. If youre willing to remove and replace the rears each time you want to adjust, then I recommend them. Better than a nonadjustable shock that leave you zero ability to soften or harden ride quality.
