Very pleased with this kit. My car had a broken rear spring and since everything else looked pretty tired I thought I would take the opportunity to freshen things up.
Ordered the kit online on Sunday and it arrived Tuesday. Great service from MX5 Parts and I will definately be ordering more parts soon.
Kit fitted fine but I would recommend buying new shock gaiters/bump stops at the same time. My old ones were disintegrating and i'm glad I fitted new ones.
This kit is a bargain! I wanted to freshen my car up without spending a fortune. I also wanted to keep things fairly standard and this kit fitted the bill. In fact buying four KYB shocks on their own costs roughly the same price as this kit so the springs end up costing pretty much nothing!
I measured the ride height of my car before and after fitment and the change was negligible. I guess the old springs had sagged a bit and a rear one had snapped. The drive after was improved but again not dramatically. The ride is slightly firmer, the car more stable and planted on the road and body roll reduced. Basically the car is now more like I would expect a new one to feel like without the 97K worth of wear mine had before.
If you are looking for a value for money way of replacing your shocks and springs, without ruining the ride comfort, retaining a pretty standard ride height and making a car on old standard suspension feel newer, I would highly recommend this kit.
