Description

Details

Now available! We worked with Paco Motorsports to improve the design of these. They're now more stable, stronger and are easier to fit.

Just look at that picture. Doesn't it make you giggle? This is a clever piece of work from Paco Motorsports.

This is a bolt-on lift for NA and NB Miatas. It basically extends your lower shock mounting point. Ride height will increase by 3" in the front and 3.25" in the rear. You can run tires up to 25.5" in diameter on an NA without fender modifications, but the front fascia on the late NB will interfere in this case. The car in the picture is on 215/65-15 tires, which are 26" in diameter and required some light massaging.

Installation is easy and 100% reversible. You will not gain any travel, your car will sit higher with the same amount of compression and droop travel that you have now. Keep in mind that your alignment will change with the increased ride height, and you will be limited in how much negative camber you can obtain. This is not liable to be a problem, as you're not going to want a track alignment when you're set up for gravel roads or dirt. But you should be aware. If you really do need extreme amounts of camber along with a high ride height, you can add our extended lower ball joints and Paco Motorsports adjustable rear upper control arms. But they won't be necessary in most builds.

Installation note: Please be aware that we are exploring the edges of sanity here. You may come across problems with wheel fitment or new and exciting interference problems with different spring/shock assemblies. Be prepared to deal with them. We have learned that some stock wheels (14" daisies and 2001 15" wheels) interfere with stock springs at full droop with this kit. There have also been reports of difficulties installing with stock shocks. You will have to fight against the bushings in the upper mounts to get the shocks to line up at full droop.

Sold as a complete set. Made of powdercoated steel.

So Dope
Total pain in the ass to install.

Such a blast one it was in.

Required spacers and extended lug nuts at all four corners.

Stock car, bilstein dampers.

First dirt autoX killed off all my OEM wheel bearings and both rear CVs.

Just replace it all when you install this kit.

Update after 3 months of driving on stilts...
Initially, I gave this item 3 stars, due to unexpected difficulty with the installation. The description has been updated to reflect some user experience, good job FM! An informed customer is a happy customer.

Now, onto the actual driving experience. Is it still like a Miata? Surprisingly... yes. After getting it aligned, and making sure I wasn't having any more interference issues, I decided to push at the limits a bit. Even without sway bars connected (I don't have adjustable end links, and stock ones won't reach), it handles really well. Driving at 7/10 on snow tires, I don't really notice a difference. If anything, my car can be rotated a bit easier now...

Anyway, I have yet to test it off road, but I will say that in deep snow, it does fantastic. This is exactly why I bought the kit, because it seems like once a year, western Wyoming gets a really good storm. Well this year was even worse than usual, worst I've seen in 10 years. We got a foot in one day. Now that wouldn't be so bad if the wind didn't pile it up, and people didn't shovel their driveways out into the streets... grrr. Fortunately, I didn't have any clearance issues with the lift, and I'm on stock size tires still. Long as I went easy on the throttle, I haven't gotten stuck due to being high centered.

So, for functionality, I'll update my review to a 4-star, works as intended, and at a reasonable price. Thanks FM and Paco Motorsports!

Does not fit a stock NB2
Great idea, but does not fit a stock NB2. Stock shocks rub as do stock 15" and 14" wheel/tires. At full rear travel the articulation of the drive shafts stop wheel travel, not the shocks. Ouch!
Gave it 2 stars instead of 1 because if you want to use shorter shocks, wheel spacers and extended swaybar endlinks, it could work. Didn't get to the front end of my install to check out bump steer issues.
Still a really cool idea.

Good lift, maybe some iffy testing
Alright so I'm a few days in with the lift kit, let's start off with the good things. The car is definitely higher, fits much taller tires (there's a catch), and well it's a lifted miata so it's kinda fun.

As another customer noted, this is not an easy install with stock shocks. I too questioned whether anyone had actually tried this with stock suspension because it took me about 9 hours to fully install. This is coming from a guy who has three miatas and just finished a ls3 build. It's not a short install. I don't usually mind if I'm told in advance that something might be a bit of a PITA but I went in expecting it to be much easier. As well as it being a long install, as the other customer stated, stock wheels will rub on the springs at full droop. I don't have bigger than stock snow tires on yet but I already need a spacer to pull it away from the springs. Once again, it's not a big deal if I knew in advance but somewhat bothersome otherwise.

Overall I'm gonna go ahead and give it a 4 star. I would go for a 3.5 if there was an option but I'm gonna round up. Basically, I like the kit and I've wanted to lift my beater miata for quite some time now but I was pretty annoyed/disappointed and the seeming lack of testing with the product. If you're going to buy this I would recommend it, but just know that it's not a super easy install. As for tips, you can get the blade of a screwdriver in the little lettering and notch on the back ones and push the shock up, also get out the crowbar. Best of luck! Oh and this was a 91 miata for reference.

Does it work? Not sure yet. Is it "easy" to install? Well...
First off, it seems well made. Background for my specific install, bone stock 99 NB with stock 14x6 wheels. To put it politely, I have to question whether anyone in the development phase attempted to install this on a stock setup. A coilover, with it's shorter shock body, would have made this HEAPS easier. Stock components? Not so much.

I have quite a bit of experience installing suspensions on various vehicles, but I can't say I've ever had something fight me quite this much. When I have to break out the BFH, a couple pry bars, and the spring compressors, that is not an "easy" mod. This took me 12 hours and more swearing than I care to admit to.

Also, stock 14's from a 99 won't clear the rear springs, you will need a spacer of some sort. Good luck, but be realistic with your expectations.

Install is fairly straight-forward. Awesome results. DOO EET!!!
It was a long wait for this kit. Now that it's installed, it was worth it. This kit and the big set of snows means I can't wait for winter.

Installation was pretty straight forward. To gain access to the front LCA ball joint bolt, I removed the big, long UCA inner bolt and removed the shock/spring assembly. For reassembly, I made sure I had the bottom shock mount bolt in place before trying to reinstall the UCA inner bolt. Seemed to make the process a little easier.

For tires, I ended up with Firestone Winterforce in 195/75-r14 on the stock wheels. $56/piece shipped from amazon and they fit like a glove!
