I don't there are many options out there, and they are expensive.
What is your budget?

How off is your speedometer? for now, your only option is korean companies. not that know, and around $1200. there were rumors that Tein is coming up with coil-overs for the koup.

Looks like they're 16's, maybe 17's. They look very small because the car isn't lowered at all.


What size is that 14? 13?
Tein is in progress on making coilovers for the Forte. If I could remember correctly, the release date according to Tein is sometime in August.

I'm assuming Eibach?

I currnetly have Eibach on my car, and I also have 17's, but im running 50 series tire, not 40.

I have 215-50-17 on my wheels. From my picture thread you can get a basic idea what your car is going to look like. You are going to have more of a gap between the wheels well and tire, but because you are running a smaller series tire.

It is because shops don't want the lability in case one of your tires fails on you. I've seen first handed people just normal driving, but take a corner going just a tad to fast and the tire fall of the bead.

205/40/17 which was very hard to find a shop around me to install them

you need to be careful when you are running stretch no bumps no chirping no hard corners just straight cruising

A spring with a 3 inch drop?
Brand? Website?
A 3 inch drop without aftermarket struts? :eek:
Your struts are going to blow on you real fast.

Its about a 1 1/2 to a 1 3/4 drop.
I can send you the link to my thread so you can get an idea. Eibachs springs don't give more than 2. 2 is probably max, and still high for Eibachs.

epiic how low did the springs get you? i ordered the same ones
That's what I am trying to say to the OP.
