If you're looking for some good used Bilsteins, I have a set off an MSM I'd sell.

Direct comparison to MSM bilsteins with 600/375 springs: https://forum.miata.net/vb/showthread.php?t=602283
And a couple of reviews: https://forum.miata.net/vb/showthread.php?t=582137
I'm pretty skeptical to be honest. OP's description of the MSM Bilsteins' strengths/weaknesses is backwards. Their low speed damping isn't great. High speed is much better. Second link, the only actual modicum of real information comes from the guy that sells them. He isn't going to say a single thing bad about them, it's bad for business.

I'm sure the the DSD is fine, but NB bilsteins + 550/375 is magic carpet ride. Like.... legitimately. The MSMs do not ride as well, and i suspect his were in a bad way if he really had the experiences he did with them.
