Thanks for that, not sure if there is a difference between the facelift or pre, new DC5 owner.Hi, unsure if you can still buy new or if there is much difference between facelift and prefacelift.
Bilstein do some replacement shocks which you could pair with springs of you don't want coilovers.
Worth keeping eye out for low milage secondhand as they often come up when people swap for coilovers

How did this go Mike? Managed to find the original suspension?Thanks for the feedback, I'll keep an eye on the used market for a OEM set, failing that I'll get Bilstein.

I am still looking for options at the moment as couldn't find a good enough set of facelift OEM struts for sale.How did this go Mike? Managed to find the original suspension?
I was in your situation and eventually got a set of facelift suspension to go on my pre-facelift
it needed new rear struts so i got the KYB AGX from the EP3 for the rears. The front OEM struts supposedly checked out as good, I really really hope they actually are. If not, I may have to rebuild them since they are quite hard to find now
Sounds like a nightmare getting sent the wrong part.EP3 Rear struts are supposed to be very easy, just need washers for the bottom bolt.
It SHOULD have been an easy set up for me but Tirerack shipped one incorrect strut (from a MX-5!) and I had to wait to get that corrected. No fun when you already paid import tax/duties to bring in the wrong thing.
Just waiting on some OEM honda coil spring isolators to come in to hopefully keep them quiet, and then i'll swap them on.
Still worried about the quality of the used front's though, but honestly lowering and coilovers doesn't work for me here in Jamaica. The roads are too bad in most places to be dropped down low
Yep, re the wrong part drama set back my project for about 6 weeks. Between trying to file the claim, get it investigated, and then shipping the correct part to Jamaica. Cost me a bit of money too, because now i have one KYB AGX for a Miata/MX5 that i paid money to bring to Jamaica and have no use for.Sounds like a nightmare getting sent the wrong part.
I am in the same boat regarding coilovers as the roads are rubbish here so the OEM set up will do me.
Used units are always a risk as you cannot even rely on honest answers about the amount of KMS they have covered etc.
I'll probably try the EP3 route or Bilstein shocks rather than coil overs.
