She submitted it, was waiting for word back. Judging by how they have shrugged us off over the last year of us begging them, I don't expect anything anytime soon.I thought someone in the ES Facebook group said they were going to be giving their car over to Eibach a couple of weeks ago. I don't think they'd make it to market that quickly?
Join here if you aren't already: (make sure you answer the required questions)Does anyone have some settled pics of Meccatune springs? I’ve seen a pic on here of the ONF but I’m not a fan of the reverse rake look they seem to give this car.
Both of the available springs are a pretty even drop, so they appear to be higher in the front than the rear due to the shorter rear wheel arch. See attached photo of John Pratt's car with Meccatunes.I’m not a Facebook user so I can’t look unless I have an account...bummer. Can anyone with springs either post side shots or just say how many inches your springs lowered your car? I’m trying to decide if any of the springs available for our car will be low enough for me. I know I should just get coil overs but the price of springs is much more reasonable. This weekend I had a few rolls of sod and some topsoil in my trunk and I loved the way the rear looked lol. I measured around 25” from the floor to the fender. When I took all the stuff out and measured again it was around 26” so I’m thinking I’d like a spring that gets me 1” in the rear and 1.5” in the front.
I don't know the specifics but I think they are 18x9.5 which IMO sticks out of the fenders too much. Personal preference of course.Thanks Turbo. I hate a reverse rake look, but that doesn’t look too bad actually. Do you know what size wheel he’s running? Seems like a nice setup for this car with those springs.
Eibach had a couple cars in for development recently so they will have some things coming soon. I am unsure of the time it takes for their stuff to hit production after development.There isn't a lowering kit from Eibach/Koni/H&R at the moment, or one that would fit.
I have done some extensive research and none seem to work. The demand for aftermarket parts for the ES is not that high for the following companies for them to do. The car would need to be around for a while before its considered, like the VT/GEN.
The front strut part number's are as follow for the Elantra
**APPARENTLY THE STRUTS ARE SITTING LOWER THAN A REG ELANTRA (DEALER TOLD ME )**
wondering.... why are you telling us the part number ??? reason is the struts for the ES are only for the ES, it doesn't crossover to another elantra or Hyundai. The older model elantra's shared alot of the same parts as the new one, so you could use parts from a older/new model. I even ordered springs for the Forte as you can find them for a 2018 Forte S, and are a tad bit wider ( workable, but dont feel like cutting anything ).
hope this helps......if someone has them it could be true they are eibach's but according to a reputable connection they have not produced any.

With that said there are 3-4 spring options for this car already, and multiple coilover setups. I just put Yellowspeed Racing coilovers on my car and besides a minor noise from the back I am trying to track down, they're pretty good.
A couple people in my facebook group had their cars in to Eibach for measurements, so they do have stuff coming.My apology., I didn't properly write my thread....I forgot to mention is companies I have dealt with in the past. I have a really good friend that works at Eibach and had indicated to me that Eibach had not made some for the ES. Now I am sure there is a lot more folks making them, however my personal preference is dealing with companies I have dealt with past and present. I have reached out to accuair and air runner tuner, as I have considered bagging the ES. I am currently running Accuair on my ISF.
Do you mind sharing the name of the name of those companies that make Springs for the ES ? I am not a big fan of coil overs, just don't like the feel of coil overs.
I am actually about to put some wheels on mine..... I went with HRE Flow Form FF15 front I am doing 19 x 7.5 with a 32 offset and on the rear I am doing 19 x 9.5 with a 45 offset.... I am trying as well the 8.5 with a 35 offset for the rear...based on my calculations it should clear a 45 offset, but things can change once installed .
I appreciate you sharing the YellowSpeed info as well, greatly appreciate it !
All the same. Eibach lists 18+ on their website and I have told them more than once they can include 17. They have yet to correct it.Looks like TR has the springs on sale but backordered until March, though curious why they only list 2018-19 and not include 2017 and 20 (Not tested?)...
