Cool NB Flyin Miata stage1 suspension (Tokico Illumina+FM Springs)

Testing waters. Might just run them on the MSM, not sure yet.

Like the title says, I bought these brand new from Flyin Miata and they have been by far the most comfortable daily driver/street setup I've used (and I've tried like 5 different suspensions). Actually softer than OEM on setting 1. Very smooth and compliant ride on setting 2, and very agile and sporty on settings 3 and 4.

They are still in excellent shape, low ~5k miles, still have all the paperwork from FM, including the warranty card, etc.

The 99+ tokicos have been discontinued as far as I know, so they are hard to find, and most places I see have them 600-650 shipped. The FM springs are 250. Also included are all 4 NB excellent condition bump stops and rubber boots/covers.

These fit all years 90-05 with the appropriate tophats

Looking for $750 obo.
No lowballing.

Pics from when I got them


Will take current pics asap.
Thanks

Just an FYI for anyone interested in these shocks for a NA, Flyin Miata has them on back order for an unknown length of time (I ordered two months ago and haven't heard anything yet). And, according to Flyin Miata, they are the only distributors of these in the US.

Why do these illumina adjust at the bottom? Mine are at the top or the shaft. Just wondering.

The fronts are at top and the rears at bottom.
I've never seen illuminas that adjust the rears at the top.

Be warned...this setup is junk! 18psi has no idea what he's talking about saying this is the most comfortable, best riding damper/spring combo. What does he know? He doesn't race or track his car. He doesn't know what a properly damped shock feels like.

Buyer beware!

If you are willing to separate I will take just the springs. Let me know.

Thanks but I'd only part if I sold the shocks first.

How much would you be willing to sell just the shocks for? I might be interested.

I will only separate if I have payment for both. But likely I will just keep them if I don't sell them. I really really like them, and the only reason they're not already on my MSM is because I have no time at all to install them.

Thanks for the inquiries
Tax time is only a couple weeks away
