NA top hats suck, and I don't think they allow enough travel for VMAXX struts. If you keep them, I'd recommend you install NB top hats.

Anybody know how duravle this brand of coilover is? Flying Miata mentions that they are more durable than Illumina coilovers, and they haven't had to utilize the 2 year warranty in any of the sets that have been sold.
considering the illuminas come with an unlimited mile warranty, I'm pretty sure they're not more durable than illuminas.

you most certainly shot yourself in the foot, but oh well lesson learned.

I'll certainly look into that. Maybe I'll fabricate a set of top hats.

Scrounge around for some $20 NB hats, swap them on, and then sell the whole setup on CR.net for $450.
