see post #213.


what is your desired height?
Lower than 12 higher than 11 can't say for sure until I find the right balance between stance and comfort/performance. Thanks for the info, I know I gots some learn'in to do.

Yeah I think you'll wanna start with the shortest shock body, springs at zero preload (almost loose when unsinstalled). Then youll wanna inscrease the shock body with no spring and tire on until you dont rub at full compression. Then and there, should put you really damn lower without the worry of rubbing the fender wall...

Can't decide if I want to go ahead and get the ez streets, or save my pennies and hold off for a pair of bc's. I'm tracking my car, bit at the same time it is miata daily. Its a hard decision. I've read this thread twice now. I might just be impatient.

if it was me and i was planning on slamming the shit out of my car, then i would just go racelands cause im essentially destroying everything under my car anyway. but yes, there have been a few slammed cars on EZ streets, you just gotta find them. also, how serious are you with tracking your car anyway?

Look at the dates on those posts.

Currently the best I am seeing is at thmotorsport.com Next best bet buy them from gomiata. Good luck. I am still saving to buy a set. Remember google is your friend. Use the search button!!!!!!! 665 at thmotorsports and free shipping. Sonic Motor has them at 650 on their site I believe that is plus shipping but as said before check stock and make deals via email or best by phone.

If it sounds sketchy which it very well might then you should support vendors on the forum like gomiata 699.99 and you know what they say is good and you will receive your stuff provided they have it in stock. HTH.

You mightve already answered but what do you think of them for drifting. Could you be more specific about it too. I have them on my car but yet to try them on dry pavement.

I have megan tracks on my car. And I have to say, click 32 to click 30 I feel a difference. 32 being the softest is WAY too soft even for 10kg front 8kg rear. Not trying to get off subject, but I'm just saying that the tracks are soft to be 10kg/8kg and in a miata.

Good review!
