Default stock suspensions on my 1995

I have some ebay coilovers that are at their highest in the rear, and I still saw sparks in the rear view last night.

The car has NB mounts.

Can I run my 1991 springs on the NB mounts?

Will NA mounts raise the car up?

I need at least 1" all the way around.




Anyone care to trade dampers for the ebay coilovers? Why do people buy this **** instead of just being a man and getting ground controls?

Sorry I can't answer your question. But one of the junk yards on Jefferson Davis has 3 miata's setting in it. 1 Na and 2 newer. The rear ends and motors are gone, and most everything, But the springs were there the last time I seen them. I think it is the Third yard from the east end. On the east bound lane.

Most of the time he is reasonable, and sometimes he is stupid on prices. It isn't a u-pull it though. They pull the parts for you.

i don't feel like jacking with either of those ******* at all-import or texas. The dude at texas tried to rush me out the door with a non-torsen, but I called my father and had it taken care of...considering he owns a few yards over there. lulz

I won't shop at Texas either. They told me a price over the phone. And when my brother who is "gay" shows up. They up'd the price.
On top of that my brother showed them WHICH part on WHICH car he wanted. They gave him the wronge part. I went up there and made them get me the right part. The guy tried to get smart and minipulate me. I nipped that fast. And told him they should of gave me the part I ask for.
I got the part and haven't been back.

There is a reason they have multiple bullet holes in their front glass. The pissed off the wronge person somewhere.

My ebay coilovers hardly lowered my truck-like '96 suspension at all...
