Description

Details

Improved! The rear shocks now have offset bushings for extra clearance between the spring and the halfshafts. This gives you a wider range of height adjustment. We have also gone to a single long front spring to give maximum travel without coil bind.

Our V-Maxx Classic suspension is very popular, but theres one thing missing from it: adjustable damping. So we worked with V-Maxx to bring an adjustable set to market. They call it the XXtreme.

The XXtreme Sport package comes with 391 lb/in front and 258 lb/in rear spring rates. Its a decent all-around setup - stiff enough for track and autocross use, firm but useable on the street. Those are the same rates used on our non-adjustable V-Maxx Classic shocks. If youd like a track-oriented setup with 25% stiffer spring rates, check out our Track Pack for the same price. The springs are also available separately if youd like to have multiple sets on hand.

So what makes them work?

The adjustable shock damping is well-matched to the springs. A 1/2" shorter rear shock body gives extra compression travel for improved ride and handling, even at lower ride heights. Since the spring perch is adjustable, you have full control over ride height and cornerweighting. The spring rates are 391 lb/in in the front and 258 lb/in in the rear, which gives a good handling balance.

The stock upper mounts are retained. They have a two-year warranty.

Not compatible with FMs rear upper mounts, as this combination provides more compression travel than the suspension can physically deliver. We recommend the use of factory upper mounts only. 

Customer warning: Flyin' Miata is the exclusive US distributor for Miata V-Maxx suspension. Kits from elsewhere will not have a warranty nor will they have the correct spring rates. Buyer beware!

Amazing coilovers for the price
Bought these coilovers for my 2003 NB, install was very straightforward and the kit comes with everything you need. Between taking the old set out, putting these in and getting ride height right, you're looking at about 8 hours of work.
I was genuinely surprised by how comfortable they were on my first drive. You're absolutely going to feel bumps and crappy road surfaces more but it's not jarring or harsh if you have the damping turned down, but body roll is almost non existent. I've put about 500 miles on them through city streets, long freeway stints and bashing through my hometowns county roads, some buttery smooth and some like washboards.
The spring rates are excellent, just stiff enough. The car is a little more prone to understeer than before but I have Flyin' Miata sway bars, and a little messing around with those does the trick, of course that all comes down to your handling preferences. With the damping turned up the car becomes a little monster, the ride is very very firm but the handling is honestly better than any other car I've driven. It turned my body rolling goof ball Miata into a serious daily drivable racer, and the best part is once you've had enough you can turn the damping down in about 2 minutes. All in all it's a great, all around, no compromise set up. Tons of thanks to FM!
