ND suspension torque specs

Post by Greg @ GWR »

I have discovered, along with a lot of ND owners, unless you have access to an ND shop manual it is hard to find the torque specs for the ND suspension. These numbers are useful if you do a spring/shock or coilover upgrade. These are taken from the shop manual via Mitchell, and corresponding photos are on miata.net at the link at the bottom. Enjoy!
