To obtain a desired ride height like that, you want coil-overs!:



The only coil-overs I know is Keiichi DG-5's:



From the many pictures I saw of very agressively lowered Coupe's, there must be more options available!

Thanx!

DG5s are overpriced IMO. There will be alot of coil overs available from a number of companies for this car once it hits the U.S.

Look under vendors & find PowerAxle, there you will find a discussion of coil overs & other brands...

This is one of the reasons I may just get a base model 2.0 turbo. Because then I can pick and choose my own parts for the suspension, since there undoubtedly will be parts available. On the other hand, maybe the pricing on a Track or R-Spec model may be cheap enough and good enough to satisfy me? But if the Korean pricing reflects US pricing or is even lower, it will be hard to not pass up a sub 19,000 Genesis Coupe.....

:shifting:

I'd ahve to see what the ride is like in the Genesis Coupe before I decide to spend a bunch of money on mods. I'm not gonna just replace parts to replace them. If Hyundai does their homework we should see a very capable car from the get go. The Track and R-Spec should be even better (supposedly M3 like?).

I want to get the Track version so hopefully the suspension and handling will be plenty good for me. I would be afraid that too low of a car I'd have issues with going over speed bumps or something like that.

Considering that I'm getting the R-Spec, I have no intention of replacing with coil overs right away, although I am planning on replacing with coil overs eventually. But, I'm also getting R-Spec for a # of other reasons than just stiffer suspension settings, including: LSD, Brembos, larger sway bars, & lighter weight. I have no intention of changing any of these other things I just mentioned, plus they will retain a 5yr/60k warranty.

I will need help when it's time for coil overs.

When I get around to getting my coil overs, I want the best bang for my buck & I don't want to have to replace cheap ones later with decent ones. I want rebuildable, quality, fully adjustable, but need no more than 10 settings. I would like to spend between $1300.00 & $2000.00.

But just like my GenCoupe, I look for value in all my purchases & since this will be the 1st time that I've purchased/used coil overs, I will be looking to you guys for advice.

We have coilovers in development with our damper factory in Japan. We will have a spec for the 2.0 and 3.8 models seperately, as the weights for each cary do vary. we use only top level components from japan, and springs will be sourced from Hyperco, one of the best racing spring manufacturers in the world. MSRP price points should be between $1400-1900 depending on the model. All components will be servicable at our facility in IL as well as custom valving etc.

Preliminary testing will be done on the car in Korea, and any final tweeks will be done here in the US once our car arrives.

DG5 is keeping high end price for themselve and reluctant to give good deal

However, Hyundai spec was specially tested and made for Korean market, so we'll be handling worldwide market for Hyundai only.

For Genesis Coupe, you can choose spring rate for both front and rear from SWIFT brand. The DG5 also comes with rear link replacement.

Even better news....

Soon, USA based Japanese tuner will be getting suspension kit under OEM from same company. This company does overhaul and have their own compression tester and spring rate checking in house.

Unlike many importer either replace a new suspension that has been damage from racing, accident or sell complete new set.... this company can replace only needed parts. Although they will import most for Japanese cars, I am sure they'll have some for GenCoupe as well.

As matter of fact, I spoke to oem buyer and we talk about KW this morning..
If KW makes for GenCoupe, it will be hard to beat the price and their performance with 2way adj. compression and rebound for what? $1,500?


At the end, price and brand name will be the choice. I am sure Tein, HKS, Apexi, Tanabe will join to produce parts for GenCoupe.

Stance are Korean made I think. From the look, I think HDS is their manufacturer. Since Tech Pro another sus manufacturer use ATTACK brand in USA.

Only heard good stuff for Stance

man, there are so many more options early on than there were with the Tib. One more week and I'll have to start resisting the ever-present Mod-bug. This car is going to drain my bank account, end my relationship, and leave me smiling after it all. :eek:wned:
