"This is one of the most communicative, engaging, and enchanting cars I’ve ever driven." - Automobile Magazine
"There's a lovely, fluid balance to it." - Drivetribe
"Ride quality, body and wheel control are all superb; without question, these are some of the finest conventional dampers available...The Flyin’ Miata/Fox suspension excels everywhere, road or track." - Motor Magazine
"...it was easy to get on the power early and let the MX-5 chassis do its magic, in part thanks to the FOX Racing shocks on all four corners and compliant spring selection; it’s where Flyin’ Miata’s reputation in suspension tuning shines." - Hot Rod Magazine
Everyone expects a V8 Miata to be fast. But what surprises everyone is how well it works, and our suspension is a significant contributor to that. We believe in letting the car absorb the road instead of bouncing over it. The result is a car you can use every day or use to romp around Laguna Seca like a lunatic.
This package combines our Fox suspension and sway bars, with rates and geometry optimized for our V8 cars.
Our swaybars are hot formed from 4140 CrMo spring steel. This means they're stronger than the cold-formed bars found elsewhere. We've designed them to keep the same handling balance as your stock sways, but they have three settings in the front and three in the rear for fine-tuning.
The front bar is a tubular design that's modified to fit the sway bar mounting points on our modified subframes. It gives enough room to clear the front crank pulley of the LSx. The rear is a solid bar. Both have three adjustment holes and include polyurethane bushings, brackets and grease.
The shocks are designed to keep the full range of suspension travel, including matching the massive 7" rear stroke. As with all our FOX shocks, they're aluminum bodied monotubes with adjustable rebound so you can fine-tune the shocks to your needs. Thanks to some careful fine-tuning of the valving, the car rides extremely well.
The spring set is intended for all around performance. Front springs are 500 lb/in. Rears are 300 lb/in on the soft top cars and 350 on the RF.
The springs come with helper springs front and rear, as well as a custom front upper mount. This is a complete coilover setup with everything you need to install.
There are a lot of little details on these parts that aren't immediately obvious. The springs sit on a high density plastic ring that acts as a bearing, allowing the spring to rotate on the perch without the expense of a bearing. The internal washers are disc ground for high accuracy, giving more consistent behavior of the shock. Even the body of the shock is given Kashima coat, which is a superior form of hard anodizing to protect the shock under the worst conditions. Even the shocks are light - 40% lighter than a Koni. Total weight per corner (springs, shocks, bushings, helpers) is 7.25 lbs for the front and 7.05 lbs for the rear. Made in the USA.
1-Year Limited Warranty for the original customer against defects in materials and/or workmanship. Custom revalving services are offered through Fox for $35/shock.
