Recommended Posts

yes but you have to use the strut mount from the subaru and the spring needs to fit in the strut mount

Perfect, so how come everyone resorts to subaru legacy coilovers when miata ones can be found for way cheaper

So do the fronts fit aswell?

 

No.

 

Miata's use an upper / lower control arm suspension with the integrated shock/spring (coilover).

 

EA82's use a McPherson strut setup, like almost all other Subaru's.  Which means the front suspension has a lower arm, and the strut acts as the shock/spring/ & upper control arm.

^This.

So you have to mcguyver some stuff together. I used XT struts on stock springs up front and NB Miata coilovers in back, sits pretty good. Might toss in some coilovers in front though.
