better top hats, better ride...

well, we all want a nice ride when slammed.. like miata kids get.. people make extended top hots for coils for them.... i figured you may be able to come up with something.. im sure everyone with a lowered srt would be down for a nice ride, and you stock coilovers..

Moderately Slammed

Someone should go to a reputable shop and express interest.. after all there's a lot more of you slammed guys than a few years ago....

Or just try and get a company to make shorter shock bodies for the coilovers (BC might already, but maybe not short enough).

edit: here's another company making them: Miata Suspension

Just need a vendor that can make then and some demand for em. That way you guys wouldn't have to run preload

That green SRT up there is about the only one I'd consider slammed from those pics, looks good!
