Tokico D-spec DSP-14 Shocks
Tokico D-SPEC RX-8 Shocks - DSP-14 (Sold as a complete set of 4 - springs not included) - The multi-adjustment D-SPEC shocks from Tokico offers the RX-8 owner the ultimate in suspension tuning. The internal design of the shock assembly features a sophisticated piston and valving design, combined with a unique variable-aperture bypass controlled by an adjustable slide valve. Adjustments to the RX-8 D-SPEC shocks change both the rebound and compression damping simultaneously, with an infinite adjustment range between the soft and hard settings.

Each shock is adjustable by simply rotating the tuning sprocket on the top of the shock rod. Although the front shocks on the RX-8 can be easily reached from the engine compartment, the top of the rear shock rods are virtually impossible to reach once installed on the car. To address this issue, Tokico offers a pair of extension adjustment cables that can be attached to the top of the shocks and allows easy access adjustments from inside the trunk. For more information on these extension cables, see item 60-1144

Installation Note: During the installation of these shocks it is critically important to follow the torque specs provided in the Tokico Installation Guide Sheet or you will snap off the adjuster and they won't cover it as warranty.


REVIEWS

I have to say that your website is one of the cleanest, most functional and easy to use. There are a lot of independent part sellers that have horrible websites and it was a joy to use yours and even explore the customer car gallery and the good win build page. Thank you for a great experience.

After reading many other positive reviews on both the GWR and Miata forums I finally decided to buy this product. My main concern for many months was whether or not I was up to the task of installing the header. But with the excellent instructions on Brian's forum as well as several Miata forum threads it turned out easier than I expected. After receiving notice that the header would arrive on a Friday afternoon, I began the disassembly process. After about 3 hours I had the stock manifold out. Later that afternoon the new catted header arrived right on schedule. And it is a thing of beauty. I opted for the stainless version. Installation on Saturday morning took another 3 hours, although I could have shaved some time off of that but I was actually enjoying the process of double checking torque values and cleaning up my engine compartment. I already have the GWR catted midpipe, so that connection was a snap. I put everything back together, reconnected my battery, and went for a drive. NO CODES! Nice throaty sound with my RSII muffler, and a significant boost in power and low/mid torque. Another happy camper here. I since have added a M-E tune and I feel I have realized all of the gains that Brian has achieved on his 2012 project Miata. I've put several hundred miles on my Miata since the install with zero problems. This is the car that Mazda should have built all along. Thanks Brian.
