Project Miata update #2

Suspension parts are ordered. Those of you who know Miatas have certainly heard of Flyin Miata. They are one of the top Miata specialists in the country. Their business consists of manufacturing and selling all kinds of parts to make Miatas go fast and handle great. So it's no surprise that I've looked to them to supply my suspension setup. I've ordered their Stage 1 suspension kit which consists of lowering springs of their own design along with some Tokico Illumina adjustable shocks. Everything I've heard about this suspension says that it is a great street/occasional track setup.

I didn't stop there though. I also ordered a set of mounts and bumpstops from another Miata suspension specialist, Fat Cat Motorsports. I ordered their custom mount and bumpstop kit for the Tokico shocks. This kit uses second generation(NB) Miata shock mounts modified to fit the first generation(NA) cars. This allows for more suspension travel and better ride when lowered.

Hopefully, I'll be getting all these parts over the next couple of weeks and I'll get them installed as soon as possible.
