Whats up guys Im Neco & I have a 2011 Sonata 2.4L. YES 2.4 because some bum in Korea decided not to add manual to the turbo model & I dont like automatic, I get bored.

If u dont like modified cars then u should just walk away now.LOL

1st thing I did was throw some wheels on, these are OZ Michael Angelo. 19s



Then I realized that the suspension on the Sonata sucks. Once u hit 70 she starts to wonder so I did a full suspension upgrade.



So now she looks better & handles like a champ



Buuuttttt I think I can do better with my wheel options so i changed it up again. Nice & staggered 20s





I got alot more coming like bodykit, wing, brake upgrade etc etc

I actually have a lip kit coming & Im doing a cool custom design for the headlight in spring. Im also painting the roof black & the grill is going black too. I decided to do a sporty type VIP & the YF is perfect.

The car show was called Wekfest & it was in Chicago, My coilovers are called "Stance" & Im the 1st YF in the US with them :D

20x10 245 30 20, 20x8.5 215 35 20

Please understand that this wheel setup requires a good shop alignment to get the rears at about -2.7 camber to clear fenders. Even with that its not meant for everyone. This waring is only for people who are gonna slam the car. If kepping normal height then wheels are fine

thats one hot yf, do you have any problems with the upper control arm knocking like the nf sonatas do because of the coilovers?
Not the front but I get a clunk in the back & what I found is that the car is so low the sway bar end links are binding so Im probably gonna buy some adjustable sway bar links of a Genesis & make it work.

camber wear does suck, but gotta pay to play

sweet car dude! i would deff go lower, and fit a more aggressiveness stance on that car!
I wanted to go lower but I daily this thing in Chicago & I dont wanna loose my oil pan. LOL Plus when I install the bodykit I will loose about another 5/8 clearance. The wheels are good for now,Im not a big fan of negative camber & Im already at -3 so Im good. I might go a little more aggressive if I buy the Work wheels I want.

New project Im working on for the Sonata. I cant see myself paying 1000 or more on a cat back exhaust so Im building my own. Most kits I find are running a 2.5 inch pipe unless ur turbo then u can run 3 inch. I have the 2.4L so Im going 2.5 piping & I did a crap load of researched to find a car that can match our layout & I think I got it. I will post more pics tomorrow once I install it with my buddy.
