Neotech VE coilovers for 2006-2010 Sonatas

I am currently using the Neotech VE coilovers on my 2007 Sonata.
The ride is pretty good (i previously had H&R lowering springs and Neotechs ride ALOT better than the H&R springs)

The height is adjustable but the dampening is not..
However if dampening adjust is a must for you.. Neotech LE is also available which is 3-400$ more depending on where you get it from

some pics







Let me know if you have any questions

dang, I am lovin your ride man.
I see you said you had H&Rs on it before..how much did it drop your Sonata? and do you have the GLS v6?

I'm only 17 and I do not work much, so naturally, I try to find the best bang for my buck, and I purchased the H&R sports and I am actually planning to install them tomorrow morning. How much drop should I expect, I have an 06 GLS v6.

I know the Sport springs say around 1.4" drop, but would I maybe get a little bit more out of them?

And I like your attempts at keeping the forum lively! haha

^nope, mines a 4 banger... lol

The h&r springs drop 1.4" front and 1.3" back but honestly that was not enough low for me...
from my experience though, the v6 are dropped more from the same springs due to heavier weight of the engine.

i recently sold my old h&r springs for dirt cheap to another sonata guy in new jersey lol... should have buzzed this forum earlier! haha

but yeah, let me know how it goes

Hey man, thought I would check in and let you know how I like the H&R Sports. I REALLY like them, I am far from a driver for sport, but the smoothness and stiffness of the ride is wayy better than stock. I like the drop, too. You were right, my v6 probably dropped a bit more because there is about a 2 finger gap instead of the old 4 and a half
Overall, I am satisfied.

By the way, what kind of front lip do you have, and do you have black projector headlight housings as well?

^it was just handed down from my rents, so i didnt complain.. at the time i had 2 cars, i had 95 sc300 which was my fun car although it was n/a 2jz ge... and this was my commuter but than 2 months later sc got totaled by some truck at yellow light.

and after i just spent money on this car..
v6 must be nice with more options, however i dont really care because sonatas are not made to go fast anyways..

i will be possibly getting another 2nd 'fun' car in the summer, possibly a 2000-2001 integra type r
or worst case might even say bye bye to the sonata and get a 08 tl type s this coming summer
