I have H&R on my car. They really changed the behaviour of the car, I'm very happy with them. I mounted them with KYB GR-2 shocks and they work well. You can actually see the car riding lower, although it's only 1"6. I'm sure you'll be happy with them. <img src=/images/forums/snitz/thumbup.gif width=25 height=18 border=0>

Hey I've been out of the game for some time. My H&R's are great but I'm still riding on stock struts. Once upon a time I had done a lot of research on shocks but I've just plum forgot.

So, whats the consensus on shocks that are properly matched with an H&R drop?

I searched a LOT on internet to get a set of shocks, with two parameters: 1.- I wanted something better than stock; and 2.- I didn't want anything too expensive.

I found some things, like there were no Bilsteins that aplied for Elantra; neither did I found Tockico. There were the Koni's (at tire rack and everywhere) but they were expensive --like $600-- <img src=/images/forums/snitz/angry.gif width=15 height=15 border=0> and from what I've heard, they are anoying for daily driving, even in the softest setup.
That was then, later I found some Bilsteins on a european website I think, when I get home I'll try to find it on my PC and post them.

OK, now I'm home, I've got the part numbers for the Bilstein Shock Absorbers for Elantra, but I was so damn stupid I forgot to copy the website <img src=/images/forums/snitz/mad.gif width=16 height=16 border=0><img src=/images/forums/snitz/mad.gif width=16 height=16 border=0><img src=/images/forums/snitz/mad.gif width=16 height=16 border=0>
Anyway, if it helps to the discussion, the part numbres are:
OEM Bilstein
VNE-4732* VNE-4886*
VNE-4733* VNE-4887*

Sport Tuned Shocks
RE2-5053
RE2-5054
