5X Racing Shock Mount System for Mazda Miata

Miata Shock Mount Kit

5XR-SSM-KIT

Based off the Spec Miata race proven Fat Cat Motorsports shock mount kit, this system is designed to both facilitate the mounting of the shorter 90-97 Miata shocks to 99-05 Miata OEM shock hats (ideal for track or lowered cars), and completely transform the lackluster factory rubber shock mounting solution to maximize handling potential. This kit is designed to work with stock or aftermarket lowering springs paired with popular off-the-shelf aftermarket shocks. It provides a complete bump stop and shock mount system to further increase your vehicles capabilities on the street or track. It can ONLY be used with 1999-2005 OEM Mazda Miata shock hats, it will NOT work with 1990-1997 style Miata shock hats!

Kit's include:

  • Upper and Lower Shock Mount bushings made from MCU bump stop material
  • Your choice of our hand-picked bump stop kits (see kit options explained below)
  • All washers and hardware needed to mount to your specific shocks, and appropriate shock spacers for shocks that need them
  • Loctite and Alcohol pad for installation
  • OPTIONAL New OEM Mazda 1999-2005 NB Shock Hats (needed if you do not already have them)
  • OPTIONAL custom 95A rugged urethane spring risers to restore OEM ride height from the lower 99-05 shock hats (NB shock hats will lower your suspension 3/4")

  • Shipping: Free Shipping!
    Pricing: $203.00

    Description

    Explanation of shock options:

    Stock, Bilstein, KYB, and Tokico kits use M10 hardware. Bilstein kits come with Bilstein shock shaft spacers in case yours are not installed or have been misplaced. Koni kits come with M12 hardware. Certain shocks need shaft spacers to limit shock travel because they are susceptible to physically bottoming out and causing internal damage. We supply appropriate sized delrin spacers to prevent this in the kits that need them.

    OEM Comfort Kit 46/46:

  • Uses four 46mm "comfort" bump stops suited for street use and daily driven Miatas. This kit would replicate the OEM bump stop feel and is an ideal OEM replacement/upgrade.

    Sport Touring Kit 46/36:

  • Two Black 36mm Front bump stops and two 46mm "comfort" rear bump stops. This kit is designed to provide correction to the Miatas natural tendency to understeer by providing a shorter and stiffer 36mm front bump stop paired with a taller 46mm soft rear bump stop. This kit is designed for OEM springs, slight lowering springs, or NB shock hats with OEM springs.

    NOTE! All 36mm bump stop kits are designed for cars with lowering springs as they help restore lost shock travel from lowering. Use them on OEM springs to further increase shock travel

    Street Comfort Kit:

  • This kit comprises of our Yellow (soft) density bump stops for front and rear to provide the softest ride for street driven vehicles. It is a factory balanced suspension bias which will provide soft bump damping to both front and rear shocks. This kit is designed for cars with softer spring rates and desire a comfortable ride.

    Grand Touring Kit:

  • This kit comprises of our Blue (medium) bump stops for the front and Yellow (soft) bump stops for the rear. This kit is designed for those who enjoy the backcountry tour or occasional interstate cloverleaf attack, but also a comfortable and composed street feel. Expect a slightly stiffer ride in the front as compared to the Street Comfort kit, and with a touch more bias towards front grip (oversteer)

    Sport Kit:

  • This kit comprises of our Black (hard) bump stops for the front and our Yellow (soft) bump stops for the rear. This kit is a throwback to the legacy Fat Cat Motorsports "Sport" kit which consisted of stiff 36mm front and soft 46mm rear stops, but geared for cars with lower ride heights. This kit is designed to provide a "flickable" car with a bias towards front grip and an oversteer balance. A "Sport" feel would best describe this kit and is designed to produce a "well set-up" suspension feel. Drivers who frequent the auto-x course or drive "spirited" more often than not would appreciate this kit.

    All-Around Kit:

  • This kit comprises of our Blue (medium) bump stops for both front and rear. This kit is a middle-ground between the Street Comfort Kit and Race/Track Kit. It is designed for those who want the factory balanced suspension bias which will provide medium bump damping to both front and rear shocks. This kit is a great "all-around" setup because it can do everything and is not biased towards one style or feel, therefore is a good choice for someone who has lowered their car using springs on the stiff side that doesn't desire a specific discipline or "feel".

    Dual-Purpose Kit:

  • This kit comprises of our Black (hard) bump stops for the front and our Blue (medium) bump stops for the rear. This setup would be for primarily dual-purpose cars that drive to an auto-x or track event and back home. It is one step up from the Sport Kit in "flickable" feel, providing even more balance towards oversteer and helping to get the Miata turned-in quicker, which could help those in auto-x and on the track with a street tire. The dual-purpose nature of the setup will allow it to be composed and have a "planted" feel on the street, but without the worry of the car "stepping out" on you.

    Race/Track Kit:

  • This kit comprises of our Black (hard) bump stops for both front and rear and is a throwback to the legacy Fat Cat Motorsports "Race" or "Track" Kits that used stiff 36mm bump stops on all four corners. This kit is the equivalent of what Spec Miata racecars use and is recommended for coilover setups using stiff springs (Spec Miatas use a 700F/375R spring rate setup). It is a factory suspension bias which will provide stiff bump damping to both front and rear shocks, however it should be used with a coilover setup where you adjust your own front/rear balance. This kit is designed for race cars and dedicated track cars, and will be overly stiff on a street driven car.

    Drift Kit

  • This kit comprises of our Yellow (soft) bump stops for the front and our Black (hard) bump stops for the rear. This kit will provide a strong oversteer bias, with front roll-allowance and rear roll-resistance, effectively letting a car "step out" easier. This setup is designed for cars that are setup to drift, or for those who desire a very loose car on the track or auto-x course. It is not recommended for the street as it might cause the car to become unpredictable in the rain. This kit will provide a soft front feel and stiff rear feel, which will amplify the Miatas tendency to "jounce" through dips and yumps.
