I just got my NB set for my 91 yesterday to replace RB springs and AGX's. I am taking lots of pictures of the install. Let me know if you guys need any particular pictures of the parts before they are installed. I have to say I am very pleased so far. They look a hell of alot beafier/better than my AGX's. Only thing I had to mod so far was the lower bushing which I had to grind down like others have mentioned before. I'm not sure if this might be due to the set being intended for an NB miata.

FYI you'll have to get some nuts/spacers to put on top of the threaded part that sticks through the middle of the top hat unless you have NB tophats.

Already have NB top hats. Thanks. They went in real easy. That is other than the grinding of the lower mounts.

I'm really happy with mine. They bounced pretty bad when really low, but at reasonable heights I've been very happy. Some of the earlier posts had me nervous about oversteer but I haven't had any problems.

They are bouncy because your riding on the bump stops, aka you have 0 suspension travel...think shifter kart

Well I'm not planning on going super low, just normal like an 1"-2" lower than stock... And I'm thinking I should get a think sway bar up front and leave the stock one out back to help a little with shitty spring rates.

I am hoping to get close to stock height or just below since my driveway has a hella bump and I am tired of scraping. Right now I am trying to gestimate how much to preload the springs to get max ride height.

Installed my QA1 7" 250# today in the rears. It basically sits on the bump stops at 31 thread from the bottom..

Would the helper springs that came with the racelands help?

Also thinking about cutting the bump stop in half.

I'm not trying to achieve the SLAMMED look, but I don't want wheel gap.

For anyone with 7" springs in the back, how low are you?

Me and cspence finished the NB racelands on my NA yesterday, the car rides really nice. They really can't be beat for the price, the car is a little bouncy now but I think it's just the helper springs making it do that so the car is smoother on a day to day driving. I wouldn't track these but for back road, twisties fun they are great!

technically with a 7" rear spring you want to go lower to prevent coil bind... but if youre sitting on teh bumps, you are sitting on the bumps nothing you can do about it but go with iscracing top hats...

I think I've got mine set a little bit lower, I'm at about 12" no wheel gap, and I don't feel the bump stops when I drive. Just nice and comfy, but stiffer than stock.

Also, these are the NA Ricelands on my NA.

Edit: and from my understanding, adding the helper springs won't do anything for you that raising the perch wouldn't do as they are pretty much steel spacers once they are on.

Dude, this isn't clubroadster. Who cares how many threads are showing, key leans on the pinch weld, etc. You either clubroadster it out and ride on the bump stops, or you raise it up and get off them and have a functional car.
