Suspension Package for 1999-2000 Miatas - Now's your chance to transform your Miata into a slalom-slicing screamer! One of the first steps that can be taken to improve the handling characteristics of any Miata is the addition of larger diameter sway bars and a set of performance lowering springs.
The Racing Beat Suspension Package includes:
Street Springs - Set of Four
Tubular Front Sway Bar
Rear Sway Bar
Racing Beat has incorporated 30 years of racing experience in the design of our suspension products. All of our suspension components are designed by Racing Beat exclusively for the Miata and will improve the handling of your car dramatically. These are the same components that were used on Racing Beat Miata's to set MotorTrend Magazine's slalom record of 73.6 MPH and Sport Compact Car Magazine's skidpad (1.1g) and slalom record (70.6 MPH).
It has been long recognized that a good set of performance tires will have the biggest impact on a car's handling. The next step to improve the handling of your car is to reduce body roll through the use of performance sway bars and suspension springs. Body roll occurs when one side of the suspension is compressed (referred to as "jounce") while the other side extends (referred to as "rebound"). The use of larger diameter sway bars limits the body-roll of a car by making it harder for the driver-side and passenger-side suspensions to move in opposite directions.
Another method used to achieve less body roll is through the use of stiffer suspension springs. A stiffer spring will compress less than the stock spring when subjected to the equal amount of cornering force. Less compression on the outside edge of the car results in less body roll. (To fully optimize the performance capabilities of these springs, we suggest that you consider replacing your stock shocks with a set of performance shocks. Tired, worn shocks may not be able to absorb the increased action that a new performance spring will deliver.)
Racing Beat Street Springs: Increase Over Stock 28% front, 23% rear. These linear rate springs have been designed to lower the Miata approximately 1-inch front and 3/4-inch rear.
Racing Beat Sway Bars
The front bar is the 1.125-inch tubular sway bar, and the rear bar our 5/8-inch solid bar. The front bar is designed to be 2.2 times stronger than the stock .875" bar, and the rear is 3.9 times stronger than the 7/16" stock rear bar. Each bar is supplied with two (2) endlink mounting hole positions. Each bar comes complete with all necessary mounting hardware and bushings.
