that extra loop on the blue ones might do the trick. and what about shocks and struts
Unfortunately, I couldn't find any, even for my car. The rear shocks have changed in the Veloster. I'm not sure where the cut off is, but eventually the Veloster and late Hyundai/Kia went with a different rear shock upper mount. Even if you did have the early style rear shock, all I've seen are (other than OE) aftermarket oe replacements. I went with coilover set up because no dampers are available. If Eibach had a sport shock kit, it would be about the same as a decent set of coilovers.

I did Pro Kits for the 2020 Veloster (E10-42-047-04-22) after settling they are lower than I expected; but front to back quite even; I鈥檝e had them on for about a year now.

what shocks did you go with. my stock front shocks made the car bounce when I had lowered it. when I put the front stocks back on it road normal

I鈥檓 on stock shocks and it handles perfectly
Going to revive this as opposed to making a new thread. To those with the Pro Kit, how is the ride quality? I know all lowering springs are going to sacrifice some ride quality, however I also know that the progressive rate springs don't ride as harsh as a linear rate. Any and all feed back is greatly appreciated.
Don't forget there is a Forte GT specific application now.

Mine rides and absorbs bumps like stock until you push it and then they tighten up nicely in aggressive cornering and there is very little body roll.

Am I right that the beginning of this thread is a Forte GT-line that jerrys40 put a Eibach Forte GT spring kit into?
