Hi all,
am looking for recommendations for a low cost (not cheap :grinning:) front upper strut brace, really like the one available via MX5 parts but they aren’t cheap!
Chassis Brace, Front Upper, MX5 Mk3 3.5 3.75 (

Thanks in advance.

Probably not worth the effort others will no doubt disagree…

I tend to agree but they look great (and i have to get some engine bay “bling” to impress my 15 year old!)

Hi Davy,

It is worth having.
Here is a link to the Mazda TSB at miata dot net,

I guess it hasn’t needed it in the past 16 years but I’ll look into it. Thanks. :+1:
