5X Racing Sport Bump Stop Kits for 1999-2005 Miata
Miata Bump Stops
Our Sport kits are the evolution of the legendary Fat Cat Motorsports "Sport" Bump Stop kits. Instead of using the cutoff lower portion of the 76mm Blue bump stops to create the 36mm front bump stop used in the Fat Cat Kits, we recreated their awesome kits with our own specially molded 36mm bump stop in three different densities so you can further fine tune your ride characteristics. Please continue reading the Product Description below to learn more about our unique bump stops and what they are recommended for, and how to choose the density that best matches your desired use.
A must-have for any performance oriented driver looking to get more out of their aftermarket suspension setup. Our kits are an integrated package (not just a part) and are designed for your particular setup. We took these kits one step further by adding the option of three different densities of front 36mm bump stops so you can further custom tune your ride characteristics. With our choice of soft, medium, or hard 36mm front bump stops, a driver can now tune their lowered suspension with the bump stop densities to achieve different balance profiles. By using a soft, medium, or hard front bump stop, you can balance your car in different ways when handling limits are pushed. Here is a rundown of our options and how the choice of bump stops effect your vehicles handling profile:
Partnering with Fat Cat Motorsports allowed us access to their proven engineering and techniques on how to custom tune your suspension by way of bump stops. When the average person thinks about suspension, they think springs, shocks, and bushings. Bumpstops are the "cushion" between the shock body and the shock mount, without them the metal shock body would come in contact with the metal shock mount during full shock compression causing damage, and a terrible ride! The factories take bumpstops into consideration, however they tune them to be used with factory shocks and springs and often use inferior materials like rubber (which is unforgiving when compressed) or lower quality MCU (micro-cell urethanes) which can't handle the thermal loads as the higher quality MCU bump stops we use. When you start customizing your suspension by replacing the shocks and springs, the factory bumpstops now become mis-matched to the rest of your suspension. Most people will try and reuse the factory bumpstops, but this will not yield optimal handling characteristics because of the now lower and shorter suspension travel plus lower bump stop quality. When you upgrade your springs and shocks to lower your car or if you simply want to improve the handling and durability of your stock suspension, bumpstops can be the "missing link" in your suspension that you never thought of!
