    Details

    If you purchase these shocks before May 31st, Koni will give you a $50 rebate. Details.

    Our springs work really well with Koni Sport shocks. So it only makes sense that our Stage 1 suspension pairs these two together. An excellent performance upgrade, especially for cars with worn stock shocks. Includes a set of four springs and shocks.

    How much will this kit lower your car? We can`t tell you, because Mazda changed the ride height of Miatas over the years. However, if you measure from the center of the wheel to the fender lip, you can compare your car to the final result. It`s not a huge drop but once you drive the car you`ll appreciate how well it works.

    Front springs: 318 lb/in
    Rear springs: 233 lb/in
    Front ride height: 12.5"
    Rear ride height: 13"

    Includes four FM springs, bumpstops and four Koni Sport shocks.

    NB conversion on 94'
    Replaced my 60k-mileage stock NA suspension with NB Koni + FM spring kit. Car is quieter, corners flatter, and dives less under braking. It's not race car suspension, so it retains a tiny bit of the roly-poly fun from the stock suspension using the recommended 3/4 turn damper setting and stock sway bars. This is how the car should have come from the factory.

    Big improvement in handling and ride control
    I replaced the tired OEM suspension on my 2001 SE with this kit and have really enjoyed the way it changed the character of the car. The ride is firm but not harsh on the other settings. Body roll is minimized and the car feels very agile. The car also sits slightly lower, but not so much that I worry about bottoming-out on bumps or pulling into the driveway. If you are looking for a good street setup, this could be the way to go. Unfortunately, I can’t comment on track use.

    A great setup
    I have had this setup installed for around 3 weeks. I purchased them completely assembled with all new hardware simplifying installation. After installation I drove around for a week to let things settle then installed new tires and got a 4 way alignment.

    I purchased the car with Racing Beat springs over stock Bilsteins. This was a horrible set up which resulted in constant bottoming out and ultimately blown seals in the shocks.

    I returned to the stock "Hard S" springs over KYB shocks. Not bad and just a bit of wallowing everywhere.

    The FM kit is perfect. This is my daily driver and I put on an average of 100 miles per day. The ride is great and the stance is perfect. I do not autocross or track the car so with the exception of some chassis bracing, it is just where i want it to be.

    Highly recommended!!!

    Damned fine kit!!!
    I installed this kit on my '99 @ 60k miles. Still using the FM default settings, I could not be happier with the results. The ride is firmer but in no way harsh. The car corners flatter. Handling much improved. I would say that the springs lower the car to a "just right" height.

    I ran into the thickness problem with new bushings. I used a benchtop belt sander to remove about 4 - 5 mm.

    Support, as always, top notch.

    I'm giving this product four stars, only because I can't give it four and a half.
    This suspension package is everything they say it is. The adjustable Konis provide a great ride; stiffer than stock, but not in any way harsh. I used the base setting included in the instructions, but it's possible set it for a stiffer ride.

    A friend and I did the install and only encountered one issue we didn't anticipate. When the shocks and springs were newly installed, wasn't possible to use the lock washer with the nut for the top shock bolt. Initially the washer wouldn't leave enough thread to get the nut on. I drove it for a week with only the top nut bolted on and by then the bushings at the top had compressed enough to allow the nut and the lock washer to be bolted on.

    One other thing. Don't make the same mistake this noob did with the install. DON'T tighten all the bolts until the car has its full weight on the wheels. I tightened everything up before we let it down and it wouldn't let the suspension settle to the proper height.

    Note from Flyin' Miata: We've found the new shock bushings being supplied by Mazda are thicker than the originals, and this problem with trying to install the top nut is common to all shocks.
