fairly stock suspension

Post by ShannonK567 »

I have a 2006 mx5 that's my daily driver. I do not do any racing or auto crossing. I'm looking to upgrade the suspension a little but not lower it as I'm fine with the ride height. My question is I'm looking to replace my shocks with a new set of the bilstiens and was wondering if I should change out the bumpstops at all. Was thinking of the comfort ones.

Yes, the comfort stops a good choice if comfort is the goal.

If you want less lean of the body in the corners but don't want to lower the car, take a look at our Racing Beat sway bars.

Also I was tossing around the idea of going with the progress springs but I was wanting to go with the nc2 springs. Im wanting more of a forward stance when all said and done and I think that's what I read about over on the miata.net forums. Would I be alright using those springs instead of the nc1 springs or would it be to much.

Hmm, I know folks in the forums have done that...but since we have never done that here I don't have measurements with which to offer any feedback.

Well I have decided I'm going to go with the progress springs and the bilstein sport shocks. Would you still recommend the comfort bump stops or should I go with something different. Like I said I don't race or anything but I do have fun with it. :)

I was wondering with the setup I'm going with if you still recommend the comfort bump stops.

Assuming comfort is what you want to max with this setup...then yes.
