Racing Beat Suspension Springs for MX-5 Miata - Set of Four. Racing Beat has designed suspension coil springs for the MX-5 Miata that are suitable for street or track use.

This complete set of front and rear suspension springs were designed specifically for the MX-5 Miata by Racing Beat s engineering staff. Ideally suited for use with the stock Mazda shocks the Racing Beat springs will interchange exactly with the stock springs.

These springs have been designed with a rate increase of approximately 25% (front - 145 lb/in) and 25% (rear - 112 lb/in) with a modest drop of .5-inch (front and rear) for 2006-2008 (and NO drop for 2009-2011 unless you add Koni SHOCKS).


Jim Mederer, Racing Beat's chief engineer, shares his design philosophy with regards to the development of suspension springs as follows:

"Springs are very much a matter of opinion, I adjust ride height and spring rate based more than on any other thing, my taste. We won't excessively lower a car to obtain a "look" because the Miata will hit the bump rubbers far too often and that makes the Miata unpredictable in its handling, also it makes the Miata ride harshly and it is very hard on suspension components causing them to potentially fail. We therefore make relatively small changes in ride height, usually less than 1", depending on the application. We adjust that based in part on what we perceive the best way of adjusting for good handling."

"Our primary goal in lowering the Miata is handling, and from our point a view, improved appearance is a side benefit. We don't lower the Miata for appearance, and then take what comes in handling. We are very cautious to not excessively lower the Miata such that it will cause perceived problems either in safety, excessive tire wear, or unreasonable changes in ride comfort."

Racing Beat has now indicated that these will work ONLY on the SOFT TOP.

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.
