The MeisterR ZetaCRD coilovers are designed for fast road and occasional track day use. Engineered to reduce body roll while providing compliant handling. Damping and ride height adjustable gives you full control over the vehicle suspension setting for the road or on the track.
ZETA is the symbol for "damping ratio", a measurement describing how oscillations in a system die down after a disturbance. The ability to control oscillations is the most important function of a suspension system and it is the concept that the ZetaCRD coilovers are build upon.
Brian's Feedback: MANY customers asked us to try them. The upside is lots of BIG VALUE here, good quality springs and anodized everything and top mounts. Ride is firm on softest setting to full stiff and cracks in pavement are sharp even on the soft settings when these are fresh from the box, but they break in nicely and get reasonable on ride for the 6kg/5kg spring rates and will charge a canyon or autocross reasonably well. If serious about autocross and track jump to a higher rate kit. No dual flow valve like the much higher cost Ohlins to mask the impact of track curbs and real world potholes but just half the money here too, lots here for the low cost. Not DOT or TUV approved, they come marked 'For Off-Road Use Only'.
Had these on my previous Miata, an ND1 Club with Brembo/BBS. Tightens up the feedback from the front end of the car, better bite on turn-in, less body roll, and greater ability to dial in oversteer/understeer dynamics with the damper adjustments. Excellent setup for road applications and beginners on track or autocross. I now have an ND2 with MeisterR GT1 SDDV coilovers, which is a next level up and more than twice the price, though not necessarily twice the performance. The Zeta CRD is easily the best suspension bargain in the Miata aftermarket, in my opinion.
Installed these to replace the stock Bilsteins. Even going from an upgraded shock package to the MeisterR ZetaCRD Coilovers, there's so much difference in the ride. The rear pivots around and just feels so planted. These coilovers along with the F/R sway bars took my Club's handling from good to incredible.
Ok, it has only been one day since I had these put on. But WOW what a difference in handling. Cornering is much better and, therefore, more fun. Now I also had the Progress Technologies front and rear antisway bars installed too so I can't give all the credit to the coilovers. I highly recommend these coilovers along with an antisway upgrade.
