Default Budget Suspension

Anyone have any suggestions for a budget suspension? How are the "EBAY" coilovers? Anyone have any experience with them? I was thinking Bilisteins and sleeves, then getting some decent springs? What are you setups?

Type "Suspension Hierarchy" into the search box and win at life.

You have started 4 threads and not one is an intro thread. Go here and de-noob thyself Meet and Greet - Miata Turbo Forum - Turbo Kitten is watching you test compression. or prepare for some serious abuse.

Jacob....i'm gonna be nice, only because i don't wanna get booted. HOWEVER, what i was looking for was some CONSTRUCTIVE feedback (and you seem to be pretty useless!). You see, i could just go buy the most expensive thing out there, that everyone says is the greatest, BUT i'm looking for something that suits MY needs and matches my skills. I know i'm not a Pro driver (though i do know quite a few of them) and honestly, equipment only accounts for so much. What i was looking for was a setup that was not super expensive. I know often times, a "cheaper" product can perform ALMOST as well as a much more expensive product. In my case, spending an additional $500+ for something that is name brand, may not be necessary. I was looking for feedback from people that have used the product i was questioning, or a similar product. Again, thanks for taking the 10 seconds to respond, but next time, find something more constructive to write. Thanks

Either ask your "pro" bros or learn to search what the people here are running. You seem to know your strengths and what you are looking for so I really don't see the question here.....You ask us to list our setups, which has been done in a hundred other threads. Pick someone who seems to drive the same as you and read their build thread. Truth is, no one can tell you what YOU are looking for. If you do search, you will see that most people here agree the quality of Bilsteins are hard to beat. For a budget setup the ebay sleeve and revalved bilsteins are as good as most high dollar matched suspensions. Personally, I LOVE my Ohlins.....but since I loved my first set so much I bought the last set available in the USA for my second car so unless you find them on the shelf somewhere or used then my setup does you no good.

It was nice knowing you.....

STFU and search.

You are not a unique snowflake. Your needs are not different. You are wasting your time asking a question that has been answered a billion times.

Also the guy who you bitched at for not being constructive gave you the exact answer you will find if you search. Congrats, you insulted the only helpful person in this thread.

I'm running Megan EZ streets. I bought them a while back and they are still holding strong. Best 680 dollar coil over you can buy. Oh and welcome to the forum. Do a search next time coil over threads are a dime a dozen or go back to CR.

well, i guess i got what i asked for, and i'm man enough to admit.....i asked a rather vague question. I was just a little peeved at how quickly some people are to flame on others. I thought the point of a forum was to help others. When i see posts that i feel are not worth answering, i do that.....but there is no need to stir stuff up. To all those that chimed in with their experiences or reccomendations.....thank you!

I'm riding on "I tuned some dudes car and he gave me '99 10 ae bilsteins that I'm using with FM springs". Does that qualify as budget?

Brony, you're pretty much hitting the Trifecta of Douchey Entitled Noob behavior; First you ask a vague question which not only has been discussed in a *few* threads already, but in fact has an entire, quite comprehensive section of the forum dedicated to the subject. Then you argue with people who attempt to help you, and insult them to boot. Nice.

Think of it this way; Interweb Forums are sort of the equivalent of a bunch of people *who all know each other* standing around in a parking lot talking. Would you actually go barging into the middle of the group and not only demand that they Walk You Through Life, but then act like an asshat to the one or two people who don't just ignore your rude behavior? I mean, almost 100 views on the thread and only 12 replies, and most of them telling you that you have bad manners? Do the math Homie; the majority of people just read your first post and dismissed you as a waste of time.

And furthermore, do you really think that anybody would pay hundreds or thousands more for quality parts when some jackbag Taiwanese eBay **** would perform just as well, or even nearly quite as well? Seriously? Because we're all retarded and like to **** away money for labels that will impress somebody, somewhere? Wrong forum Skippy. That's some ClubChoadster ****.

If you haven't been banned already, this would be a good time to go and write an intro thread. It's just basic etiquette.

lol i totally understand where the antagonism comes from but still, damn. You more experienced guys on this forum are pretty harsh to noobs. I know noobs are pretty annoying since most tend to want people to walk them through everything but damn, its a feeding frenzy when one of these dudes pop up. Some straight elitism is shown but i kinda get why it happens.The ban hammer is always menacingly thrown around. Just pointing out there's a much higher standards for compliance and paying your dues than other forums, definitely not something i expected from miata enthusiasts after switching brands. I hope i dont get negative props or get ban just for expressing this though, seriously.

People don't get banned for unpopular opinions. They get banned for being stupid, raging, or refusing to listen while spewing bullshit. You may get a neg prop or two but props don't mean ****.

ohh, my mistake. I thought the props were indications of how close you were to getting banned.

There's actually a pretty low amount of bans on this forum. Most just rage quit. If they rage quit, it's pretty indicative that THEY'RE the problem.


So ask yourself: Are you a problem?
