I have had the suspension all set up.(www.alignmycar.co.uk) I used Guests tyre and auto 125 gt bridge street west bromwich b70 oda 0121 557 5200,they deserve a plug.It took around an hour and cost £50.00,they had been recommended to me by various mechanics ,I was told to avoid like the plague one national chain and I could do better (I am in the trade and had seen their handiwork).Guests seem to do a lot of work for main dealers !The machine is a Hawker 4 wheel alignment.The operator took the time to show how it all worked and spent just over an hour getting it bang on.He did not mind me looking over his shoulder and basically giving me free instruction on how to set up my car.My eyeball settings were a mile out. He really appreciated copperslipped bolts etc.I had read all the various settings for road,fast road etc in the end I went for standard.
The result is much better than the jury rigged effort before,The steering is heavier,but the car feels planted on the road and the poly bushes now do seem to give a much firmer ride.
A few words of WARNING in contacting various enterprises I came across an aufull lot of b*******t. One near perry barr birmingham told me that the MX5 suspension was non adjustable,then offered to "track it and stuff ,mate" for £98.00 !!!!!!!! So its worth a little reading and learning or you could go to Guests.
