Cool I have a Crystal white 93 too. I noticed that your headlight cover is hiked up there a little. Mazda was really bad about aligning those properly. It's an easy fix. Just take the four screws out of the black headlight surround and loosen the four 10mm bolts that hold on the lid. Then you can reposition it where it aligns right.

Also, have you looked into any other coilovers like Stance? They have a GR+ that's an oversized monotube shock with 16 settings, have aluminum upper and lower mounts, and can special order whatever spring rate you want. They only cost about $1200 which is pretty good considering. I've been running them for 6 months now and really like them.
