Sorry for my bad english...


Today, I changed my old suspensions on my 96' NA8 miata with a friend of mine. Not really difficult but I have some questions because I have doubts...


On the instruction manual, it's written:

"4. Do not fully tighten the top mount until car is on the ground, as premature tightening
can damage the bolt thread."


I tightened the bolts (the 2 bolts on the top mount) to the max when the car was still on axle stand... Is there a real risk about the bolts threads?


And other question:




When I removed my old suspensions, there were plastic seals on the top mount. (as "Ce joint" on this picture)

I didn't put them on my new Meisterr coilovers. Is that bad? Is there a risk?


Thanks you very much guyz from France ;)

Tightening top bolts on the stand is no problem


The plastic seal is a gasket but its fine without them

The plastic gasket is designed to stop squeaks coming from the mounts.  Mine were missing when I replaced the OE suspension with Meisters, but it hasn't been an issue at all.

Thanks you very much guyz!

I thought (for the plastic gasket) he had a role (rust or other) for the protection of coilovers. If it's only noise I think that I can do without.

There is no risk with rust without this plastic gasket?


Last question about my setup, I didn't use dynamometric key to tighten the bolts. Is there a problem or not?


Thanks you!
