how different is the suspension in a 1996 accent to a 2003 accent? would the coilovers that i have for my 03 work in a 96?

The mounting points are identical, however the 1995-1997 Accents used a smaller diameter strut and different springs (shaped differently). If you replace the entire assembly, the complete strut, spring, and upper strut mount from any 98-05 Accent will bolt-in. So yes, coilovers from your 03 should bolt into your 96 with no issues.
