What made you choose this particular product?
Bilstein shocks are the OEM shock absorbers that come with the Club spec ND Miata. They are good for an OEM shock but are not very stiff.
What were you trying to accomplish by adding this product?
Better handling
Was it easy install? Any installation tips that will help others?
Came installed from Manufacturer
Once you’ve had a chance to use the product, did it meet your expectations?
If you can find some on the used market they are a great used value when paired with a stiffer spring.
Any additional comments?
You can usually find these used with springs for $300-$400.
