These are the Monte Cristo of the modifications done to this car. Purchased originally as a used set from a guy who was selling his Miata parts. They work amazing for this car. Essentially, take an aftermarket Bilstein HD shock, re-valve the internals to something more appropriate for a Miata, then put on a coilover sleeve and an aftermarket 2.5" spring. The magic is in the high spring rate and well thought out damper valving. I rode in Miatas with 30% softer springs that rode worse than my car does. My rates are 500lb/in front and 400 lb/in rear. Makes for a firm ride, but a controllable and predictable one. Best suspension and the last one I will buy for this car. Had them recently revalved (3/15) for the higher 500/400 spring rate. What a difference a refined damping profile can make.
