Yonaka Coilovers Long Term Review (on a Mazda MX5 Miata)
Want to upgrade your Miata's coilovers without breaking the bank? Yonaka coilovers may be the choice for you! I've run Yonaka Coilovers on my 1993 Miata since 2016, so I have a good idea of how they perform and hold up. If you're considering installing a set on your Miata, here is a detailed review to help you make an informed decision:
Installation: Installing Yonaka coilovers on a 1990-1997 Mazda Miata is a relatively straightforward, thanks to the Miata's simple design. It's recommended that you have some mechanical knowledge and basic tools to complete the installation, as it does involve some disassembly of the suspension components. There are plenty of great guides on YouTube though, so follow along carefully and you'll be in good shape!
Quality: Overall, the quality of the Yonaka coilovers is quite good, especially for the price. I've had them on my car since 2016, and have used them on countless track days, spirited driving, and more. The coilovers are made from high-quality materials and are designed to withstand the rigors of spirited driving and track use. Also, even after all these years, none are leaking.
Performance: The Yonaka coilovers offer a noticeable improvement in performance over the factory suspension. The adjustable ride height allows you to fine-tune the suspension setup to your liking, and the stiffer spring rates provide better handling and grip. The coilovers also offer a relatively comfortable ride, despite their stiffer spring rates. These coilovers also offer adjustable damping control, which is a nice feature, though it isn't one I frequently use.
Overall, the Yonaka coilovers are a good budget option for those looking to improve the handling and performance of their 1990-1997 Mazda Miata. They offer a noticeable improvement in handling and grip, and are made from high-quality materials at their price point. For more on these coilovers, watch my full review video!
