Default New set up on my 99 sports: aka Fawk SCCA and sorry for my cellphone camera

GC sleeves with 550 front springs and 350 rear springs, revalved (spec miata valving from GHM / Gas Head Motorworks home got to plug the best miata shop I know), and FCM bumps. stock S-package ride height

I love how tame they feel (except on nasty potholes in houston). I have become a firm believer in not buying off the shelf parts but getting custom rates and valving on suspension parts.

old bumps from 2 years of autoX


new setup

I have similar rates...I'd really like to get some valved shocks to match. the Konis are harsh, but whatever.

the revalved bilsteins are smooth as butter for the most part. My totally non car loving GF even comment on how much smoother and quiet the ride was. I got lucky that they had these NIB revalved bilsteins in their shop and bought them for a steal with out having to wait for the turnaround with bilstein.

I've got a the OEM bilsteins sitting in the garage at my parents place.
