Description

Details

New and improved! No, really, they are. Paco has taken a ground-up look at their hub stands and redesigned them. They're now more compact, easier to use and less expensive. That's a win all around.

What are hub stands? They bolt on to your hubs in place of your wheels so you have full access to the suspension while the car is on the ground. They also sit on steel balls so they can move around and take any preload out of the suspension. This makes it easy to cornerweight the car and tighten up suspension bolts.

But wait, there's more! The stands are also designed to make it easy to align the car yourself. Toe and camber are dead simple, while caster and even thrust angle are straightforward. You can turn the adjusters and watch the settings change. You will need a pair of tape measures and some way to measure camber - either a smartphone or our digital gauge.

That's right, you'll never pay for an alignment again. We use these at the FM shop all the time, even if it's just to set the bushings after a suspension install.

Fits the following:

  • ALL MIATAS ...and....
  • all 4 bolt patterns ranging from 4 x 95.25 to 4 x 114.3 (that's 4 x 3.75" to 4 x 4.5") on cars using 12mm studs.
  • all 5 bolt patterns ranging from 5 x 100 to 5 x 130mm on cars using 12mm studs
  • maximum hub diameter of 72.5 mm
  • cars up to 4000 lbs

Sold as a complete set of four including thrust alignment cables. Please note that due to manufacturing methods, the bases might not be 100% flat. They will be close, and they will become flat when the weight of the car is put on the stands. The bases have no effect on the alignment and the kit will still function perfectly.

Accurate alignments at home
I purchased these hub stands with a few friends so we could do alignments at home. I've been doing alignments professionally for years on expensive equipment, so I'm very familiar with the process. We have done four alignments so far with these hub stands, and they are fantastic. If you dont know how to align a car, it will take some time to familiarize yourself with the process. Miatas can be especially frustrating due to the amount available adjustments. The level of accuracy the hub stands provide is on par with an actual alignment machine. Material and build quality are top notch.

Don't buy them!!!
I sent an email with photos and a video showing that my stands were not level. I also asked why the alignment bars are not straight. I had to shim all of the stands to get them as close to level as possible. Out by a quarter of an inch on two of them. Pretty sad when the equipment you use to do an alignment is out that bad.

The answer I received was just a cut and paste from Paco "saying" how they "intend" to manufacture a part, but no explanation as to "why" my parts came the way they did. I also had to clean out the bolt holes because they were full of powder coating. No response even after I asked FM for more information.

Very disappointed in how Flying Miata an Paco treated me on this.



When I asked Flying Miata for an explanation, nobody bothered to get back to me.

Real glad I spent $1000 for a part that nobody seems to care about.

Note from FM: since this review was posted, we did manage to make contact with Michael and Paco Motorsports. We believe the concerns were addressed.
