you could go the super duper awesome Keiichi tsuchiya route and get DG-5 for a whopping 3.5k (i think its full coilovers front and back and then some)

s13 front hubs, and coilovers? control arms too if you want to widen the track.

miata coilovers in the rear? sure, you might hae to do a little custom fab work, but it is something different......

Dude.....just build your own. It's not hard. Some Eibachs and HTS shocks. You'll be hitting the jukebox like the Fonz in no time.

Get some Standard suspension coilovers and tell us all how good they are. I haven't heard a review of these coilovers of theirs yet.

part number : R7D TY05D3

Im running megans. Gotta admit I love the simplicity. Everything is easy access. I can even change front ride height without taking the wheel off. However ill probably change the rear a little bit. I would prefer the springs to be part of the strut assembly instead of separate like stock.

You would really need to reinforce the rear shock mounts upper and lower, they were only designed to take the forces of the damper not the weight of the car. Some people get away with it, but it flexes like crazy and the spot welds will eventually seperate. Also, I fail to see any real advantage in doing it this way other than making it easier to adjust the height? Would be a negligible weight saving at best. Also, I find Greddy's to be way over-damped and over-sprung for even a mild track car and really need some serious semi slicks at least. Lots of better options out there for the money like Shockworks, Bilsteins or DG-5 if you really must be "JDM tight yo!"
