I have made a small number of changes to my MX5 ND suspension set up including eibach pro springs, 15mm spacers front and rear, 215/45 Contisport tyres and Cravensport door bushings. I hesitated for some time before fitting the rear strut brace but I'm really glad I did. It completes the package. Most noticeable is just how solid the back end feels. It removes the sensation that I sometimes got when taking bends on poor road surfaces where the rear end seemed to skip out a felt skittish/jittery and that has now gone replaced with a predictible solid feel. No hollow rattles and the whole thing just feels more planted. It actually just makes the car feel like a more upmarket vehicle without taking away any character. I wouldn't say it transforms the handling but it does make a real difference and inspires confidence. Not too hard to fit, allow about 1.5 to 2 hours. Takes up no useable space in the boot and the carpet templates are spot on. Highly recommended.
