Default MAZDA Miata Bilstein PSS coilovers - $700 (St. Joseph, MI)

Craigslist, no affilation. As I understand, these aren't really ideal (seem to recall Shaik's has some criticism of this setup on his site), but since you don't seem them very often I figured it was worth posting.

Quote:
Slightly used set of Bilstein PSS coil-overs for a 1999-2005 MAZDA Miata. Installed Spring of 2008, removed Fall of 2009, less than 10K miles on them (not even broken in for Bilsteins). Includes the Upper mounts, improved bumpstops and new upper bushings. Completely assembled.
These Bilstein PSS coilovers have 242-282 rate progressive springs for a comfortable ride while still giving much better control than the OEM standard or Sport suspension. Intended as an upgraded suspension for a street driven car. The shocks are non-adjustable but the spring perches can be adjusted to set ride height.
Available new for about $1400.00 (new price does NOT include the upper mounts and upper bushings).

My NB came with the PSS coilovers. They're nice on the street and they handled the track very well. They aren't the most optimal setup out there but I have nothing to complain about. That's a good price too.

I'd give them a shot if I didn't already have a 2nd coilover set on the way...

Perfect for someone who might be considering ricelands and who can spend just a little bit more.

I run that setup and have been very happy with it so far.

Better than a Koni Sport + Ground Control setup?

Not better than, different. They aren't adjustable. other than for height, but give a much better ride than stock.
