@Makoy - Stay clear of used coilover guys in sharjah, they gave me useless coils with cut springs with bumpy ride. Get your original stuff from Andy's, i am also going to do the same.

yes They are available at most of the Road side Irani suspension shops in Sharjah.. for 300 bucks a set But I strongly suggest you stay away from them.. Most I saw we're very cheap quality and China made with weird brand names you would expect to see in a 5-10dhs discount shop lol

Imagine if one of those snaps, not only will your car get Screwed up bad.. you might even flip it over and have a major accident at highway speeds.. Stick with the Coilovers bro, It is worth it! (Y)

Advice to everyone as expirienced
Dont go to jedah or the shop next to it for coilovers as they dont have the right coilovers for your car
I went there and did a huge mistake and i regret
I wil advice to save up money wait a little and get brand new coilovers and never regret thats what ill do new

To every Ub Member,

An advice after suffering through several unhealthy experinces with coilovers being sold at irani shops. If you hunt a half cut of same model as your car & its not driven in UAE, you may buy it blindly & i assure it would be next to perfect. Whereas if you go purchase coils from jehad or shop next to zawraq and all, there would be 2 possibilities:

1. either you'll be served with mix n match coils & abosorber sandwiched with used / spoiled / rotten seals bolts resulting in comfy drive for just span of time till the car remains within 100 meter radius of the shops. The moment you get on to highway or main street thats where you'll get in to dilemma & you'll experince the most joyful or dreadful moment. You might even think of murdering some one or get killed by someone. Conclusion please draw yourself.

2. You might find a genuin set of coils of your car specifically meant for same chassis & you'll have a peaceful low ride hereafter which happens once or twice in a lunar year i would recall...

If you are wise enough, purchase a new branded set or get them ripped from Imported cars but dont ever buy from local irani shops.

Well, i don't know what to share ?
Because whatever i wanted to share is already informed by our UB member Fakhir Tariq.
There are 2 possibilities, either you'll get an awesome job done or else the opposite, and money rest in peace, just forget about it because you never going to get it back from "muppet" as you said.

All they do is, bring all used coilover and somehow make them one piece.
As a brother, i would suggest you the same as Fakhir Tariq told you.
I had fooled once, and then by force somehow i took one more set with some extra money waste.
Luckily i got them fine pieces because i started reading about Tein and Cusco later on. I mean, double checked them this time.
Its all luck brother.

If possible, try order them for your MX-5, by the way, i loved your ride.
It looked till now freak car to me till i drove and felt it.
Its an awesome ride, felt great like Initial-D.
Regards...
