Where the hell are you getting these prices? flyin miata? lol

Prothane 1990 1997 Mazda Miata MX5 Complete Suspension Bushing Inserts Kit Red | eBay
$175, with best offer option (so you can probably try an offer of like $160 and see if they accept)

taking apart 20 year old suspension is a pain in the ***.
installing bushings is a pain in the ***.

edit: I also highly recommend these - http://www.corksport.com/corksport-u...hangers-1.html

To quote Emilio from another thread

Rubber is lower NVH.
Urethane handles better.

Pick one.


If you drive windows down or loud music you don't notice much.
