What model/SKU number would I be looking for?
The owner couldn't remember, but he did mention that they were meant for the Hyundai i30 N. So I looked up their website and found it to be part number WSK-HYU001

25MM is about 1 inch. The Eibach is 1+??

Don't go by the numbers on the website as those numbers are when the springs are installed on an i30 N. It will differ when applied to the Cerato/Forte.
Owner said it was about a 40mm drop (1.575 inches). The Eibachs lower about 30mm (1.2 inches)

Here's more pictures of an Australian owner with Whiteline springs on his GT. This is after the springs have settled. Wheels appear almost tucked. This would be a good option for anyone looking to go lower than Eibachs without paying for coilovers.

That's the springs I was supposed to get but they are on backorder in the US. I couldn't wait anymore after a whole month, so I canceled them. I have a set of H&R springs coming in on Monday.

I have the US spec 2020 Forte GT Manual (Left hand Drive).
I pulled the trigger on the Eibachs made for the Elantra Sport (not the GT).
https://eibach.com/us/2224/E10-42-046-02-22-HYUNDAI-Elantra-pro-kit
They list the Elantra as being lowered 1.4 in front and 1.1 in the rear.

For Measuring height I measured ground to the highest point on the wheel Arch. No one in the car.
Stock:
Front Driver: 26.5in (67.31cm)
Front Passenger: 26.5in (67.31cm)
Rear Driver: 26.5in (67.31cm)
Rear Passenger: 26.25in (66.68cm) Why is this corner weird?!?

Lowered on Eibach P/N: E10-42-046-02-22 :
Front Driver: 25.25in (64.14cm) or a drop of 1.25inch (3.18cm)
Front Passenger: 25.25in (64.14cm) or a drop of 1.25inch (3.18cm)
Rear Driver: 25.25in (64.14cm) or a drop of 1.25inch (3.18cm)
Rear Passenger: 25.125in (63.82cm) or a drop of 1.125inch (2.86cm) Why is this corner weird?!?

NEWLY UPDATED NUMBERS ABOVE: After a month all corners dropped roughly another 0.25in (0.64cm)

Passenger Side:
80420


UPDATED PIC AFTER SETTLING
80530


Driver side:
80421


Also here is what is in the box:
80422

I know, I've read thru the thread. Also FYI the springs I got are not the same as what Airth has. Both are from Eibach but slightly different lengths.

So far this is what we've come up with:

GT
E10-42-047-01-22 : Hyundai Veloster
E10-42-046-02-22 : Hyundai Elantra Sport Turbo
E10-42-040-02-22 : Hyundai i30

Non-GT
E10-42-039-01-22 : Hyundai Elantra

I'm really curious to how low my car will be. Whiteline advertised that their springs lower an I30 by 30mm. You friend says it lowered his Forte by 40mm. My springs are H & R and lower an I30 by 35mm advertised. Your friends car looks really low for a set of springs. I'm excited!

Should be good. Ever since I started modding many moons ago, Eibach have always been on the conservative end, with focus on comfort and compliance. H&R on the other hand would always go lower in comparison. So I reckon the H&R would be more near the 40mm+ territory.
Yeah, if you look closely at the Whiteline lowered car, the wheels are practically tucked. Yours may end of the same.

Hey nice drop what springs did u use.. im not finding anything for my 2020 kia forte gt
There are quite a few Eibach applications from Hyundai's that will fit the Forte:

E10-42-047-01-22 : Hyundai Veloster
E10-42-046-02-22 : Hyundai Elantra Sport Turbo
E10-42-040-02-22 : Hyundai i30

I have the top one, for the Veloster. If you're looking to go lower go with Whitelines.
