  1. Replacing struts

    Tiburon General Discussion
    I have a 2006 Tiburon 2.7 and plan on replacing all 4 struts next week. I have bought pre-assembled/‘loaded’ struts. Will I need to still compress the spring to remove or install pre-assembled struts or is it just plug & play (unbolt and replace)? I have never messed with suspension before...
  2. 91-96 Tib Springs on a 2005?

    Hi all, newbie here so this question may be completely stupid. I bought a 2005 Tib a few months ago and after reading through these forums for weeks I've caught the Mod Bug. I was wondering if the lowering springs for the 91-96 Tiburon will work for my 2005 one. Only reason is due to a tight...
  3. Koni Struts/Shocks - Where to buy

    Wheel, Tire, & Suspension
    I want to know where I can get some Koni struts/shocks from. Apparently they've been discontinued from Koni so I have to find another dealer. I would like to stay away from ebay unless there is nobody else out there. Also I live in Canada making it hard to buy things from US distributers that...

  5. Shocks and Struts

    Wheel, Tire, & Suspension
    I am having a hard time grasping the concept of shocks and struts. I know they control how bumpy you ride is and how your car absorbs bounces. But do they both do that? And do all cars have both or one or the other? And what about tibs? I'm wanting to lower my car between 1"-1.5" the cheapest...

    I've searched the forums but haven't found a definite answer for my situation. I currently have stock suspension and the 17" stock wheels. I would like to buy some spacers (just back? all four?) to give a more flush look. In the future I hope to replace my struts with kyb's or something like...
