suspension upgrade

Post by EvoStevo »

Brian, my 06 mx-5 is now my daily driver. I noticed you're stocking a few more coilovers. Which brand are more street friendly. I'm currently running koni yellows w/RB springs.

Nothing beats the Ohlins, nothing comes even close to the ride quality/performance you get with the Ohlins.

Assuming those are not in the budget go with the Bilstein PSS10 or KW choices (I prefer the Bilstein but the KW are very good too).

I just got a set of Ohlins on my 06 last week and they feel fantastic.
Brian what setting would you recommend starting out with for both autocross and daily driving?
I have both front and rears set at 15 clicks from stiff right now.

Brian..one more question.. are the Ohlins the only fully threaded coilover you stock for the NC?

Currently that's right. The JIC are almost as adjustable with multiple independent sections but they have been out of stock for a long time while JIC changes their factory.

Brian, what about the B&G RS2? If you can have full shock travel regarding of the height isn't that a fully threaded coilover.

Currently the B&G does not exist other than the sets we tested for them... Talked with B&G last week and they hope to have production units in the next few months.

Brian... any feedback from customers on the Ksport yet? I'm assuming the Kontrol Pro Damper are the most ideal for street use.

Nope, still testing the waters on that.

Strong preference is still OHLINS first, then KW and Bilstein choices as the budget permits.
