Did you get an alignment yet? If so, did you need a camber kit with the 2.5" drop?? Just curious........

Can't wait to see the pics!!

Which brand did you use? For a 2.5 drop? D2 is the only one that claims a 2" drop. I have seen nothing bigger than that.......except coilovers of course.

I hope it settles some more as I drive around. If not I may try to extend my top hats. Not going coil overs as this is a budget build. But I actually am going to negative camber my rears a little.

I am with you on the coil overs man!! I don't have $1500.00 to drop on that....wife and 3 kids won't have that!! lol!

Which brand springs though?????? That is the $$ question.....

I am getting ready to buy springs on a "partial" sponsorship I just got an e-mail about today!! Getting about 50% off on the set and all I have to do is send the before and after pics......deal IMO!! lol!

2.5" :confused: I lowered mine a total of 1.5 inches all the way around and mine looks as low as yours. What type of springs did you use?

I thin you also had 19" gen coupe wheels. I have 18's. If I have smaller wheels and less tire and we have similar gaps, then my drop is lower

incorrect my friend.. ive seen a ton of sonatas with 18's on hnr and 19's.. they look the same. like yours.. the tire difference you speak f between the 2 is very very minimal. the circumference has to remain within a certain window or you will throw off you mph, gas consumption , cause tranny issues etc.. bigger rim thinner tire ... smaller rim thicker tire

I will pm you. I am going to work on getting a coupon code for everyone to use, but i am going to be the guinea pig first lol.

Sponsorships are fairly easy to get. You simply ask and you can get full or partial. Did it a lot when i rode dirt bikes.

Fairly easy to get sometimes. Not that easy for the more expensive stuff.
