Just a note on possible front barke upgrade on Accents.

I just completed a front upgrade on my 2001 GSI. I used original Accent hubs (to keep 4x100 bolt pattern) pressed into 2000 Elantra/Tiburon knuckles. I used the calipers from Elantra/Tiburon, Hawk HP pads and rotors from 2001 Kia Sephia. The Kia rotors are almost dimensionally identical to Tibby rotors but have the 4x100 bolt pattern - the holes for the mounting screws even line up with the Accent hub. The only custom piece that I needed was to have a 1mm thick shim laser cut. This shim sits between the hub and the rotor as the Accent hub (at the mounting face) is not as thick as the Tibby or Kia and doesn't give enough clearance between the caliper and rotor. Also, added SS braided hoses front and rear.

Cheers
Bill

I did this upgrade. Grabbed some spindles from an 06 gls elantra. Bolted right up. The cam is out pretty good.
Besides that its a straight swap. It comes with 114 bolt pattern, my rims will do 4x100 and 4x114.

Then change the hub and have the rotors re drilled.
ya that want i want to do, but i am not sure if a accent hub will fit in a 2003 xd bearing. the xd bearing is not the same as the accent
