Default A lurkers attempt at a proper de-noobing

Hello MiataTurbo,
I've been lurking for ~6 months now and I think it's about time I make a post. I never really bothered before because I never felt I had something to add, but I guess I should just get it out of the way.
My car is a nearly stock 1993 1.6, with the only mods being a Racing Beat catback, aftermarket frame rails, and a Randall style intake.
Here's a pic from the night I bought it:

Since then, I've done some basic maintenance as well as new wheels/tires (shitty iphone 4 pics, RIP Nexus 5x)

The last picture was taken about an hour ago, so that's how it sits now. I'm currently in the process of looking for suspension on the cheap, so naturally the budget bilstein thread has been my bible every night. I still feel like I need to dig around a little more before I can decide what setup to go with. If anyone has any suggestions I would greatly appreciate it.
Future plans for the car includes a rollbar, hardtop, sways, suspension bushings, and possibly seats. Turbo is on the list, but not for a long while. I may need some seat time in someone else's car to persuade me sooner. If so, a 1.8 swap as well as a torsen will be on that list as well. I'm still a bit on the edge if I should make a build thread just for the sake of keeping track of what I do.

Welcome. I'm in Antelope

Buddy of mine has a mint set of Tokicos in the classifieds, not sure if he sold em yet or not but those are a great deal.

That's great to know, Antelope isn't far at all. If I'm going to be honest here, I was eyeballing those but I don't know the difference between the NB Tokicos. I know they will fit fine in an NA, but will the ride height or travel be any different?
