I'm having Tein Monoflex Coilovers installed on my NB '99 dedicated track/school car.
Question -- What questions should I be asking as I screen shops to do an initial setup on my car and what answers should I look for?
Background -- I'm 63 and want to actually drive for a couple of years, before the reflexes are complete gone. So, rather than spending years trying to become a genuine Miata racecar mechanic, I'm having shops and dealers do much of the wrenching. For example, timing belt & associated pieces will be done by a dealer. Non-technical bolt-in stuff: header, exhaust, roll cage, initial coilover bolt will be done by a local shop.
Now, I need to select a really competent shop to do an initial setup and balancing of the car on the new coilovers -- not a complete "sorting" -- just ride height, spring rate, alignment, ballast.
But I need at least a minimal education to be able to ask the right questions of shop candidates. Thus: What questions should I be asking as I screen shops to do an initial setup on my car and what answers should I look for?
PS: There was a link on the Forum to one setup system, but the link no longer works. Thanks, Fred
