Go to the KORE forum and ask them. They're working on coilover sleeves which should be done soon.

Hey dude I see you are from Cali.
Weaponn R is looking for some test vehicles for their Tib coilovers. E-mail them and you can get them cheap.

18s will work on a Tib. They work on an Accent <img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle>. I'm not sure how far you'll be able to drop it though.

With 18's, you're best bet for a drop without any rubbing is an Eibach drop (1.2") However, if you do take some corners sharply, you may get a little rubbing, but otherwise just regular driving....you should be fine. It also depends on the offset of the rims you get too. Good luck. <img src=icon_smile_approve.gif border=0 align=middle><img src=icon_smile_wink.gif border=0 align=middle>

I don't like rubbing.<img src=icon_smile_sad.gif border=0 align=middle>

Forget everthing you have heard. You realy don't need springs. Just take them out. You will be low as hell. This would also be considered a free mod. LOL<img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle>

HKS make springs for the elantra 96-2000 it is a 1"drop exactly no sag....it may work on the tibby (watch out for spring weight dirferences due to the differance in car weight)...go for the 18"s just get them from somewhere who know there stuff... ive had business relations with discount tire direct for 6 years and have purchaced alot of sets of wheels and they havent faild me yet...its a shame im no longer in the retail field of car audio and performance any more....killer discounts<img src=icon_smile_tongue.gif border=0 align=middle>

Good Christmas, you guys lost me~! lol j/k I'm wondering what the diff is btw the "true coilovers" and the "threaded" ones? Do they replace one system or another on 2001 Elantras? (meaning: do you use the coilovers instead of something stock?)

One word... SEARCH! I know we've discussed the difference between true coilovers and sleeves. Just click that little "Search" link in the top right. <img src=/images/forums/snitz/thumbup.gif width=25 height=18 border=0>
