  1. Not for track use
    Rating
    40%
    I bought this for my 97 intended to be a track car. After around 10 track days at VIR, the circlips holding the spring perches to the shock popped out and the perch dropped to the A arm. I replaced them with safety wired retention rings, and it happened again. This is an inherently weak design, not up to track use.

    Note from FM: A failure like that would only happen if there was coil bind. The Koni perch mounting is a design that's been proven on street and race Miatas for 30 years. RBR, please contact us.

    I am quite satisfied with the Koni Stage 2.5 setup that I purchased. I own a 1994 Miata that a previous owner had installed some inexpensive KYB shocks on. The old setup was fine, but felt pretty floaty and had a lot of body roll around the corners. The Koni replacements are almost as comfortable as the old shocks, while maintaining their composure through corners to a much better degree. I considered purchasing the Vmaxx coilovers instead of this set, but am happy with my decision as I believe these are much more comfortable for a daily driver, which my Miata is to me, while still allowing you to have a lot of fun. There is also something to be said about the ease of just installing the shocks, setting the damping, and being done. No need to fiddle with ride height or any other parameters. While some might like the options, I was satisfied with the final ride height (after a couple weeks of the springs settling), and have no real complaints - depends on your intentions for the car ultimately.

    Side note, the included upper shock mounts for the rear shocks are absolutely beautiful - makes me wish you could see them without getting under the car or digging through the trunk carpet.

    Installation was by no means "easy", but after following the provided instructions as well as referencing several youtube videos I was able to complete the install by myself (with help from friends) in a day.

    Overall a great product from a great company with great customer support, would recommend.

    Works great on the street as a daily commuter and really makes a huge difference compared to stock suspension. Significantly "tighter" feel without being harsh. Just low enough but not too low. Hard balance to achieve, but FM kit just works! With this kit, I had no need for a spring compressor, I assembled all before mounting in my 96 NA. With FM suggested settings for ride height on the Koni perches, I ended up with 12.8" front and 13.0" rear (fender lip to mid wheel). I wasn't convinced that the dual pitch spring (fronts only, rears are single pitch) would work well but they do. Trust FM on this one. Sway bars also made a big difference in body roll. Car feels tighter and more in control. Installation is easy but takes a while because of all the miscellaneous suspension bolts that have to be loosened or removed. Marking the location of alignment bolts before loosening allowed me to put the suspension back together and have acceptable alignment for a couple of weeks to let suspension settle down before real alignment. FM should make a youtube video of how to assemble the shocks/springs/mounts as well as the disassembly/ assembly process to help out beginners. Documentation provided is sufficient but could be better with at least showing photos of main steps. Hardest part of this job was tightening the top suspension nut on the Konis since there is no flat to stop the shocks from spinning (Koni design related, nothing to do with FM). Overall, after 1000 miles, the FM Koni stage 2.5 is definitely worth it. Well put together kit that takes the guesswork out of picking individual parts that work together. FM's experience in Miatas shows again.

  4. Very Happy Customer

    I went back and fourth with all the different options for replacing my 97 Miata's worn out suspension. After months of reading forums I gave the very helpful folks at Flyin' Miata a call I landed on this package. It took an excruciating couple of weeks for them to get all the parts together and I did my best to not bug them in the meantime. Installing was a good bit of work as I did all of this myself in my garage. Some of the instructions were a bit confusing (maybe some video or detailed pics and diagrams would help) but thinking about it and working methodically I got it put back together in a weekend. With experience and a step bit in hand I'm confident I could do it again in a day. I have yet to get the alignment as I'm letting the suspension settle and checking to make sure the bolts stayed tight after a few weekends of running it around. The difference so far is amazing! It feels much tighter and absorbs the bumps on the street way better than the blown out shocks and stock springs I had on it. I didn't know the old shocks were so bad until I took them off. It goes through the turns much better than before, my back end has a bit more throttle steer than before and turns in flat. If you are looking for a comfortable street setup that looks good you can't go wrong with this setup. (Note: I also installed 949 end links I bought a while back on all four corners as well).
