  1. Great handling, less refined than Konis
    Rating
    80%
    I had the Koni/FM spring setup on my previous (99) car, and then installed the V-Maxx Classics (along with FM sway bars and end links) on my 2004 earlier this year. These are both great kits, but overall I'd say the Koni/FM combo delivered the same handling benefit with a bit more of a refined ride. V-Maxx - even the classics" are a bit noisy and bouncy for my taste. I know they're priced well, but for similar money, if i had it to do over again i'd go Konis.

    I guess the other element is ride-height adjustability, but IMHO it's more trouble than it's worth, The Konis stanced my '99 just right and I didn't have to worry about busting my knuckles with the stupid adjustment rings & wrenches.

  2. High quality performance shock

    Purchased for my NB. Installed them myself. I have now gotten a whole season in and driven them on all kinds of roads and can say that these are very good quality entry level shocks for everyday driving and nice stance. Don’t cheap out and buy the $400 ebay coilovers. These guys at FM know exactly what they’re doing. Their products are built and developed by Miata specialists!

    I was looking for a straight upgrade, not a huge drop, and didn't want to mess with adjusting dampers. These fit the bill at an outstanding price. I've been autocrossing Miatas for over 10 years but never had money to spend on upgrades until recently. I had an autocross two weeks after installing, and I was floored by how easy the car was to drive hard compared to the stock HardS setup. It was like the car was thinking ahead for me. They're equally good at Summit Point and comfortable to drive on the street to get there and back.

  4. I like em!

    Love my new FM V-Maxx Classic coil overs. Owned an NC for 5 years and it was 100% stock and I thought it handled good. Now own a NB and with this new suspension I think it handles great! I live about 40 minutes from the Tail Of The Dragon here in Tennessee and get to take some runs on it 3-4 times a month. Car stays flat in hard cornering,steering feels much more responsive and positive and this suspension gives me a lot more confidence to push harder than I was comfortable doing before.As far as the looks? I set the springs at FM's suggested heights of 12" front and 12 1/2" rear and the wheel gap is gone,looks MUCH better and I'm not scrapping on anything.I don't find the ride rough at all. Stiffer than OEM but that was the point. Guys tried to tell me I couldn't get a decent set-up for under a $1,000 but these V-Maxx suit me just fine! Only complaint I have is that Flyin Miata didn't send me any window decals so I can't advertise their product!!

  5. Fantastic upgrade.

    These were exactly what I was after. An excellent upgrade from the 20 year old suspension parts on my '99.

    I have 2 notes for any DIY folks like myself:
    1) Though they have removed the helper spring and gone with a single spring on the fronts, the plastic divider is still packaged with the coilovers. This should be removed before installation.

    2) There is now a note on the site about the offset on the bottom rear mounts. THIS IS IMPORTANT. Don't do like me and install them backwards, or the adjustment collars can run into the half shafts. Simple enough to flip them around, but that was 30 minutes I could have spent doing something else.

    All in all, I'm very pleased with my purchase. I will definitely order from Flyin' Miata again.

  6. Can't beat this for a daily driver

    Great value for the money. Replaced a harsh MSM suspension with these and the car is much more comfortable. Not only is it more comfortable doing daily duty, it's faster than the stock setup on the backroads. Install is pretty easy and everything seems well made.

    Package is incredible! Great all around setup, I mostly do spirited back road driving and this is perfect for a daily driver. Fully adjustable ride height. Car also looks better with the lowered body. Nothing negative to say.

    Lowered to recommended settings. Looks great, minimal body roll, and actually pretty comfortable. I daily my car and its not to far off from the stock suspension in terms of being comfortable.
