I've been reading this article

http://hyundaiperformance.com/tech/diy/accent/x3/1/001/index.php

and posts on this topic with great interest; I need new brakes on my '98 and I'm royally pissed 'cause I can't do it myself.

This looks like a straightforward swap, and for about the same money.

Questions:
Is there any change in the suspension geometry due to differences in the knuckles??
What are the wheel options after the swap?

:)

I can tell you I done this on my S-coupe, and its great, bigger brakes are much better.

However I had to drill a new hole in the lower mounting hole of my strut for the knuckle to line up, and I also had to pick up a set of camber bolts to go into the upper mounting hole. I also had to take a bit of metal off the bracket on the bottom of the strut so it wouldn't rub the CV boot.

I have 17" tires on my Scoupe and it only rubs when I turn all the way either way, thats normal for larger rims and tires though. 205/40/17
