- My model of MX-5 is: 2009 NC1 2.0ltr Sport
- I’m based near: Birmingham
- I’m looking for technical help or recommendations on: Understanding my cars suspension set up
Hi All, I bought a 2009 NC1 on Friday and love it. The guy i bought it from only had it a short time so didnt know much about it, but a previous owner has lowered it. It’s still got the original Bilstein’s but appears to have H&R (they’re bright blue?!) lowering springs.
Ride height is set to 340mm at the front, 345mm at the rear. Almost everything I’ve read on here this eve suggests people normally set the front higher, is there any reason why you’d set the front lower? The car handles brilliantly, but is just a little skittish at around 60mph if the roads a little bumpy - is that characteristic of the car, or can it be overcome with damper setting changes? A decent of tyres would probably help too…
Thanks in advance for any help!
