1990 Autocross Miata running RB hollow FSB and no RSB

Plan

-NA Koni yellows
-NB hats/FCM bumps
-OBX collars/sleeves
-Eibach 7" 6k rear springs

Questioning rate/length on fronts

-looking at Eibach 8" 8K front

Any issues/opinions on rates 8K/6K? 8" length in front?

8k/6k is widely used setup, but might be a bit soft for autox. Should be pretty neutral, considering your sway bar choices.

Gator 8" will keep you close to 12.75-13" fender to wheel gap at best. MOST STS miatas are near 12 or lower. You'll need 6" front and at most 7" rear to get the height right...


That being said a 9k front would be a better match up for the 6k rear.

Crap just grabbed the 8" 8Ks for the front. Considering price of both shipped (8K\6K Eibach yellow springs) for $80 I guess I can bag the fronts. Guy said he was using them on his Teins.

What 9K 6" would you recommend? Also, think of going with Bilstein Sports with these....thoughts?

Thx in advance

Interesting, got the yellow Eibach springs and they are stamped, "Ohlins".
