Is it just because you guys are using stock valved bilsteins with those ridiculous spring rates, or are you guys refering to revalved bilsteins? Other than here, if thats the case, I've heard nothing but good things about revalved monotube bilsteins. That's acctually what I intend on doing for my final setup, with about 600/400 spring rates most likely. So what springs should I look at? Tien, Eibach, anyone have a pref?

I am using Eibach 2.5" springs with GC sleeves, I highly recommend it.


Oh yeah, my bilsteins were the OEM valveing, but they were also paired with OEM R springs.

Those are renowned for their harshness aren't they?

Even with stock rear bars, Miatas have some oversteer. Losing the rear bar creates a nice, neutral ride. Especially on high power cars, kicking the rear out with the throttle is easy.

Appreciate the explanation. If a stiffer front is installed, wouldn’t that alleviate the oversteer (e.g. RB hollow bar) and bring the car back to neutral state?
