Plan was to get a recent OEM take offs from a newer Miata and mount them on my car. Mission accomplished! I found a 14,800 mile 2012 GT PRHT NC2 shocks for my 54,800 mile GT PRHT NC1. Perfect fit. Feel absolutely new. Very nice dampening. Just what I wanted.
A slight issue arose when we noticed a click happening on some right turns. This is yet to be resolved.
OEM Bilstein shocks have Mazda stamped on the fronts.
