No worries, I recently found out that Koni would not be developing replacement struts, so I will not be purchasing Eibach springs. Looks like MaxUSA will probably be my choice for coilovers since their rears are true coilovers unlike most other offerings.

BTW just got Braille battery in, will install along with aftermarket washer bottle this weekend. Had to order a longer ground cable for the new battery since the neg post will be about twice as far away as before.

Talking Sorry Hav not been around!

Sorry haven't been on the forums lately, but I still have my car and I'm still around. I just have not had to time or money to do anything worth posting. Really at this point I just want to finish putting on what I've purchased in the past that is still sitting in the boxes and tune the girl. Anyways, this weekend I've got to pull my exhaust manifold due to a leak causing obnoxious noise and some loss of power. I going to put the original manifold gasket back on that I removed when I had it P&P and since it has been years since I removed it for port & polishing I was wanting to refer to my old threads for torque specs. On the down side as soon as I pulled the MAP manifold powder coated cover the last bolt broke in the manifold flush so I can't use my extractor sockets and now have to drill and extract it with an actual extractor then possibly tap it...yeah just like old days...LoL

The Braille battery Installed eventually just couldn't handle the load just too small so I researched and found that "BIG CRANK" battery made in the same factory as the Braille yet cost $100.00 less than the comparative Braille that was about $200 for the new larger battery I got. It does way a little more than my last one at 21lbs vs the 13 lb one I had before which cost $149 but my ATV battery was at least that big and now I don't have to start my car every couple of days to ensure it does not go dead.

Anyways, I haven't given up on my car and one day I will finish it. The only new mod is a polyurethane front lip spoiler I left natural semi gloss black since it may take a beating over time. Still haven't completed putting my stereo on either since fixing up my home usually takes priority over my car and if I had done as many mods to my car as my house it might be done, but priorities take precedence.

Keep on hooking up you cars showing other manufacturers and owners that Hyundai is a force to be reckoned with. I love an underdog and I love Hyundai for what they provide for the price. This is the only new car I have ever purchased and plan to ever purchase, I just hope one day an average Joe with limited funds like me can eventually post up pics and numbers that I and you can be proud of. Good news is the car is almost paid, but bad news is I haven't had the funds to go road racing in years.

Hope to talk more later and search the threads to see what has changed but until then ya'll just keep enjoying your rides and hope to see you on the roads.

Yeah, I wondered where you were. I've been on the other forum mostly. I've never posted much. Had a question for you earlier about the rear differential and the bearings, but Hyundai kinda put me in a 'wait and see' on that one. Good to know you are still around though.
