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 also use a single long spring in the front for reaching higher ride heights without coil bind.
To answer one of the most common questions - yes, this price is for a full set of four.
An exclusive to Flyin' Miata! Tested at the Targa Newfoundland - twice.
You'd be amazed at how many suspension systems we test at Flyin' Miata. Even with a full line of parts, we're always looking for good options to pass along to our customers. When we first tried the V-Maxx suspension from the Netherlands, we didn't expect it to be any good due to the low price. To our surprise, it was better than most - but it wasn't quite right. So we changed the spring rates and bumpstop design until we had an end result that met our expectations, and worked with the manufacturer to bring our version to market.
So what makes them work?
The fixed 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. They also have a two-year warranty.
This package includes a set of NB upper mounts and all the required bushings and washers to install the NB suspension in an NA car. This allows you to take advantage of the newer design Mazda developed after 10 years of Miata production. You also don't reuse any of your original suspension parts, so installation is easier. If you have an NB and want to replace every single bit, this is the package for you.
They're not quite in the same league as the FOX in terms of outright speed, but they do offer excellent value and are a good choice for someone who wants an inexpensive coilover setup. Includes front and rear springs, four shocks, adjusting tools and bumpstops as well as new upper mounts and bushings.
NA Miatas are all getting up there in age and the chassis are starting to get a little floppy. As these spring and damping rates are significantly stiffer than stock, they will work best on a car with good chassis bracing. The FM butterfly brace is probably the best thing you can do to make your older Miata feel new again.
Not compatible with FM's 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.
Please note that these were designed as a performance setup, and thus work best at a lower-than-stock ride height. We recommend setting them at approximately 12"-12.5" in the front and 12.5"-13" in the rear. They are not intended to be run much higher than that.
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!
