Thank you. You have rated this product.

Improve ride quality by getting your rear suspension off the stops! These extended travel top hats add almost 1" of travel compared with an NB top. Adding more free shock travel before contact with the bumpstops significantly improves ride and handling. Uses a rubber bushing for a noise-free ride.

Price is for ONE shock mount.

With the suspension design of the NA and NB Miata, suspension travel is at a premium, and having enough travel is crucial to good handling and ride quality. As you lower the car, that travel is further reduced, so there is less and less room for the suspension to move before it slams the bumpstops. Folks often think high spring rates are to blame for harsh ride when they lower the Miata a lot with coilover kits but lack of travel and slamming the bumpstops is the real issue. This is particularly a problem in the rear of the Miata and as a driver you are essentially sitting on the rear shock that is just inches behind your back.

The additional one inch of travel doesn't sound like much but when every millimeter helps, that is quite a lot.

Fitment Notes:

YES these fit NA/NB Ohlins coilovers - add these to the Ohlins for the BEST riding setup possible!
Fits most rear coilovers for the Miata with at least 50mm of length for the threaded top of the shock shaft and up to 12mm diameter.

These are NOT compatible with 949 Racing Xida coilovers.

SPRINGS
Fits with 2.75" and 2.5" springs as used in Ground Control coilover conversion kits and most Miata coilovers. Does not fit with 2.25" springs.

Recommended for the rear only. Using extended travel top hats in the front can allow the tire to contact the inner wheel well.

Brian, Thank you!!! We last spoke in November about some upgrades for my 2011 MX5 soft top. It has finally warmed up in NE Ohio and two relaxed weekends of wrenching on my car were well worth the effort. Installation of the RoadsterSport ceramic coated street header was straight forward and took under 8 hours, including a 40 minute test drive and cleanup of the garage! Combined with the RoadsterSport Q exhaust, the sound is fantastic and the increased torque, horsepower and performance make it a blast to drive. The addition of the Cobalt shock tower brace, Racing Beat sway bars, ILM front power train and X braces really enhanced the ride - minimal body roll, comfortable and very responsive. Your recommendations really helped transform the car from great to fantastic. Your research, product development and candid recommendations make you a standout in the industry. My only questions are - what's next on my list .... And how soon will my wife want the same upgrades on her 2012 PRHT ... Again, thank you!!! Charles G

Last week I spoke to Brian, I ordered a aluminum Koyo 37mm radiator for 97 Miata. Brian, you run a first class show! It arrived the next day. It is a fully polished work of art. The welding is perfect. The fit is perfect, old radiator slipped right out, new one slipped right in. Perfect. I am very pleased. Thank you.
