Cool Another Noob???

Yes, I am another noob, I own a 93' SR20DET powered miata (please don't judge me). I hope to learn and get good advise about suspension so I can tear up Nor Cal mountain side and fix my never ending issue with braking my rear diff (hopefully I can fix that issue this year).[IMG][/IMG]

There's something you don't see every day.
What part of nor-cal?

Car looks awesome I love the swap a 2J would be better but that will do.lol As far as the rear goes put a torsen in it or a RX-7 turbo II rear that will take care of that issue.
