no sir. I have a white miata and I am hopefully going to autox it for the first time in june.

I guess I should get a pic of it up...maybe after i get the coilovers in

and I already ordered the coilovers for an NB from raceland cuz thats all they have in stock for a while it seems, so im just looking for NB top mounts, without paying for super fancy high tech upgrade NB mounts, i just need stock NB mounts

(I own a NA miata if that was causing confusion)

Get those NB top hats, washer, rubbers, from finishlineperformance.com. I would get the big racing beat hollow bar on the front. Once you have 2 autox's under your belt sign up for mazdamotorsports.com for cheap parts. Honestly I would run nb front hats and isc rear hats. Those racelands with a big front bar will do you great for your first season.

those things.

thread about them.

I've been reading through that thread the past couple of days... I think I'm going to give it a shot with a set of Bilsteins.

Was that link provided the same kit you used for your setup? I read that some of the kits are way too short - I just want to grab the right one.

My plan was the same as yours - try them out then upgrade to the longer spring in the future. I'll probably buy the Spec Miata bump/mount kit that FCM sells to go with it.

Yes I'm running the OBX NB kit on my 95 with ISC top mounts with the sleeves sitting on the stock koni perches. I'm running around 12" from the center of the hub to the fender lip front and rear, rear settled a bit more and needs raised back up a bit. With the ISC mounts the 7" rear springs are about perfect for me while I would really like to upgrade the 6" fronts to 7". I'm not running into coil bind problems but another inch wouldn't hurt and I think I'd like stiffer springs anyway. The OBX kit makes up most of the last 5 or 6 pages of that thread over on miata.net. Most of the kits mentioned before that are no longer sold on ebay or have some other name.

They use to sell an OBX NA kit as well but dropped it. It had slightly stiffer springs but they were also an inch shorter front and rear. The sleeves were the same as far as i can tell.
