Yeah dont do it they stink.(driveability).

If you want an actual improvement over oem buy Bilstein struts front and rear. Their quality is better than oem, and their rate is much more aggressive. The ride is spectacular.
B8 to remain stock height, B6 if you insist on lowering it

Im not any kind of expert but people have had great experiences running coilovers for our platform. I wouldn't cheap out but if you do your research you can find what you are looking for.
Here is a old link but it may point you in the right direction.


FYI watch out for the crap that there people offer you as advice in this forum because to say that coilovers stink is very narrow minded and shows lack of any kind of knowledge on the subject.

Good luck

Take your own advice, and watch your self,...........................

Anything I spew on here will be the result of SME advice,..(not my own). Or more importantly experiential knowledge.

1. Fact, lowering these cars with non-specific engineered replacements results in reduced driving dynamics.
2.Fact. Newer guys like the one above, look to do things that tend to be common place, but not necessarily in the best result.
3. Fact . Most coil overs are made for slamm-aholic drivers. Lowering is the key goal. Not driving dynamics.
4. Fact. Even the cheapest ass coilovers are way more expensive than the "truly engineered" Bilstein replacements.
5. I have plenty of actual experience with coilovers, the most expensive I could find.(It was for a VT turbo). They stink. You can adjust the crap out of them, but they still stink.

Please express a counter point..............But check yourself,..dont try to lecture me BRAHH !!!
Take your wokeness somewhere else, my advice is to give him the best driving dynamics for not so much money.

So lets be honest with the fella:
1. If you want to slam, slam, lower, get funky camber stuff, spacers and junk. It will look cool, but its a dam death trap at high speeds, (over like 70).
2. Do as I am advising, it doesnt cost that much, its easy to do. Yes your car whatever model it is will drive better, actually better, more responsive, safer. That's not my opinion that's from a Hyundai expert.

Lol, wasn't quartermaster banned from here?

I find it funny that he has a site dedicated for a platform that is 5 years discontinued.

I'm running D2 racing coilovers and I'm happy with them. Little expensive but that's why you pay a bit for good quality.

So the Hyundai tech expert chimes in. Go ahead and give your expert advice that i have never followed. You spend all day long on this forum talking bs. Why don't you give this guy some advice instead of going after me. I will make it simple for you....Go f**k yourself Hyundai tech expert.

I don't think I ever claimed to be a "hyundai expert" and never have I worked for hyundai.
Don't know what your problem is. I just pointed out that a former member of the forum was BANNED from here. I never did follow what drama caused his banning, but I think it was him trying to troll, and was given multiple warnings or something along those lines. Reason I never want to be an admin/mod of any forum.

And I said the that it was funny that he has a site up for this, because he's actively spending money to pay for domain/site hosting 5 years after the car has been discontinued, without having some sort of business around it.

So the shell cracks and the true nature comes out. AKGC always gives sound guidance. I've never seen him lose his cool either.

Notice when challenged, I give specific fact points. Our friend here gives expletives and insults. Our friend gives or tries to defend broad statements. I give personal experience and SME advice (not from me).

-I am not a Hyundai tech
-I am not the Hyundai expert.-
-My friend Matt is, A highly trained Ford and Hyundai/Genesis master tech gas engine/EV/Hybrid with over 18 years experience. He owns his own repair business now.

I did give him advice,...you wanted to poo-poo it. I got more specific as to why I gave said advice. You lost your mind.

I really don't know why you think you have to try and explain to me that you have absolutely no experience at all in the automotive industry because that has always been apparent with you.
You are a guy tinkering with his car on the weekend and acting like a expert on this forum.
You are the only one on this forum who has a thread dedicated to himself and post absolute bs on it every single day. You are full of yourself. You talk alot of crap and will continue to due to thats in your nature.
You can stick up for your buddy AKGC but the truth is he comes at me every time I post something so f*ck him and f*ck you too little dirt bag.

Ok internet hero.......................................(The cursing just makes it)
**I sure the heck am not explaining it you, its for the other weekend warriors reading.

As you pointed out. The BS I post is not my own, is from actual SME's, for the other weekend warriors that might want to know.
Hence its not my advice its SME's, hence its has nothing to do with "myself" as you put it. Your own arguments discredit your self. Maybe he doesn't "come at you", (AK) maybe he just offers a counter point without judging you as an individual or as in your mind,.... a self proclaimed expert. AK and I often have differing options, but he always has the best intrest of answering the question at hand as I do, for us its not a zero sum equation.

I am not full of myself, I am however full of my Gen, and all the SME's that got her where she is,................which is quite the badass in every way. You can hate the personality,....but the car is defacto a monster, and gorgeous, and reliable, and fun.(the whole point of this forum).

So we have digressed.

To sum up the OPs query, he can either:

1. Listen to your blowhard general based summation from one angle with opinion only.
2. Or he can listen to someone with actual experience with the equipment he is inquiring about, AND the equipment he is recommending.(which costs less).

Drops mic,......leaves.

"Drop mic.. leaves". Lmaooooo only a egotistical self centered pathetic excuse of a man would say something like that....Good job .
Everything that you comment on is bs.
You lack the ability to speak correctly and look like a freakin moron trying to do so.
Like I said you are the only person who has a thread entirely dedicated about talking absolute bs on a daily basis about himself....
So again f*ck you and go f*ck off.
You are a herb and a freakin poser. You look ridiculous even trying to look like you are something on this forum.

Fellas would you please knock this off. This new owner asked for simple recommendations and look what you turned it into. You guys don't like each other obviously and fine. But now this guy probably sees this community as a sh*t show and he'll probably never want to post a question for help again.
