What can you tell me/recommend? I was leaning toward coil-overs, but I'm not really sure why. I am also looking for new tires - Star Specs on the Miata, but I don't plan to Autocross the SVT, so might want something that will give me a few more miles (I run Blizzaks in the central Illinois winter).

Anyone else have input - let me know!

Thanks - RRCastle
Are you serious about having an 8 door SVTf?
Have your considered the FRPP springs instead? They're plug and play with a 2 or 4 door SVTf. Also tire rack has sales on Koni's and KYB's check it out in their site.
