    Hi guys, I've searched and read but can't seem to find some reference I'm hoping to find. I've got a 10th anniversary NB that's fully stock. Which means it has the "Hard S" Bilstein shocks. The whole car is in pretty good condition, it has around 75000 miles on it. I find the ride pretty...

    Hi All, I was hoping one or more of you might be willing to spare a moment of your precious time to help me out please! I am pretty new to MX-5 ownership and have absolutely no experience of suspension tuning (having left every previous car I have had "stock" - although a couple had very...

    Hi, Has anyone on this forum had their OEM Bilstein shocks revalved? On the NA and NB they are easy enough to take apart, but on the NC and ND the Bilstein shocks have crimped ends. Has anyone worked out a way around the crimped ends? Thanks

    MK2.5 Sport (so already comes with upgraded Bilstein shocks from factory), now lowered 35mm using H&R 35mm Lowering Springs. Thought I'd put it on here because I couldn't find many pictures/ much help before buying my springs. Although not 'low', its low enough to look a lot better and still...

    I've got some mk2.5 bilsteins to be fitted and 2 need new bushes. I'm just after some recommendations on where to get them from and which ones. Thanks.
  6. Newbies! Introduce yourselves here
    Hallo world! This is how it all started 3 months ago. 2001 1.8 S-VT sport. Did the interior in leather and fabric. Sorry for the crappy pics but I think you get the mood. Plus a set of Advanti 15x6.5j and a Yokohama Parada Spec 2 shoes. Did my first track day this weekend :)...

    Hello all, I'm changing the suspension again at the weekend (weather permitting) and I have the choice of using mk2 Bilstein bump stops, the ones that come on Gaz dampers or Audi A3 items - can someone give me a view on the best solution for a road car? And if it's the A3 type, can someone...

    I'm looking to lower my 2003 1.8 Sport. I pulled the NSF wheel off recently to inspect the current setup and found the following: I believe these are the bilsteins that were standard fit to this model, can anyone confirm? I'm looking to lower the car around 30-35mm. Whilst saving for a...

    Right, not sure if this will be useful, but I've recently swapped my mk1 onto a set of mk2.5 Bilsteins. Just thought I'd post a few pictures because there doesn't seem to be many, and also make a few observations. When I bought the car it was fitted with KYB AGX adjustables and what I would...

    Hi y'all, Just wondering if anyone knows the standard spring rate for mk2.5 Bilsteins from an SVT? I have done a forum search but it didn't bring up an obvious answer - apologies if I missed it. Similarly, anyone clued up on what spring rates these dampers will cope with before the ride gets...

    Hey all, Just bought some Bilsteins from an older SV-T to go on my "SPORT S" equipped SV-T (The black shocks etc.). Will I need anything else for these to go on correctly? Bushes, bump stops etc.? Also, EIbach or Teins, to go on these Bilsteins? Thanks in advance all!

    Hey - I need to replace a front Bilstein shock - I'm looking for one if possible. For a MK1 mx5 No springs or top mounts needed. What you got? :) Thanks

    The answer to these questions are probably painfully obvious if i look at the car, but i wont be able to for a while. I recently purchased some MK1 Bilsteins. If I fit the struts complete with springs etc. will i need to have the geometry re-setup? Also would i be correct in saying that...

    Ok boys and girls I have a '94 mk1 1.8 soon to be track toy it currently sits on a set of cheapo racelands. But I also have a set of bilsteins with quite firm lowering springs on. The question is should I keep the racelands or swap it to the bilsteins ? The car is gonna be a track car only...
