Supposedly low miles (~8k) but can't guarantee. The guy I picked them up from was really nice and seemed honest though.

Adjustable. Have spring seat rubbers on them.

$250 shipped obo



Happy to make package deals on this and other items I have for sale, just let me know what you need and what you're looking to spend.

Looks like a good deal. I won some autocrosses with about the same setup earlier this year. GLWS!

I'm actually considering keeping this setup. Trying to find some NB top hats to work well with it.

Hate to let a decent setup I don't have too much invested in go when it will probably be a year before I can invest in anything.

Still open to offers in the meantime.

Question: can I use these to lower my car by 1" - 1.5" WHILE MAINTAINING THE EXACT SAME SUSPENSION TRAVEL AS THE STOCK MIATA SETUP?

They will fit any Miata built from 1989 to 2005.

The shock bodies might be slightly longer, making a switch to NB top hats wise in order to maintain travel. You'd actually gain travel over your NA setup.

The spring perches are also a bit higher, so you'll either sit higher or want some lowering springs.

I've run this exact setup before, with the NA version of this shock, and the same Tein springs. I think it was down at 12-12.5".

It was actually a decent setup, and I found out about 5 or 6 setups later that you have to spend a LOT more money to do much better, at least for street use.

It definitely wasn't bouncy. Tight, slightly stiff, but good stance and lots more fun in the twisties than blown stockers.

Willing to make a deal on these and the springs (see other thread).
