Suspension

The Hyundai Genesis Coupe's suspension geometry is where the magic happens! Utilizing a 5 link suspension in the rear the Hyundai Genesis Coupe grips around the turns like nothing else. 

Front Suspension:

A common performance upgrade for the Hyundai Genesis Coupe is aftermarket suspension. Which requires the removal of the factory suspension struts.

Front Hub Replacement:

Wheel bearings sometimes go, especially when you race your Hyundai Genesis Coupe. The Genracer team are pros at swapping out front wheel hubs (bearings) on our race cars from over the years so this is a topic we really know!

First remove the front caliper. 

See our FAQ Brakes section on how to remove the brake calipers.

Once the front caliper is off, with a philips head unscrew the disc brake rotor retaining screws (A).

Remove the front disc brake.

Turn the wheel so you have more access to the backside of the front knuckle.

Disconnect the wheel speed sensor that plugs into the back of the front hub and unbolt the four bolts that hold the hub assembly to the knuckle assembly.

front-hub-bolts.jpgInstallation Torque is 72.3 lb-ft.

 These will be tight so a long breaker bar is recommended. The higher the car is in the air the more leverage you will have.

Installation is the reverse.

Rear Suspension:

Always perform these tasks with the car off the ground with zero load on the suspension.

Replacement of Rear Shock Absorber:

Awesome Service

I recently purchased the ARK test pipes for my 2010 Hyundai Genesis Coupe 3.8 and must say was the best thing I’ve done aside from from getting my aftermarket exhaust. Sounds louder and drives faster! No hassle, got the pipes within three days. Thank you GenRacer,

Simply the Best Service

Most places just sell parts and when you call them it feels like you are bothering them. My last transaction with GENRACER left nothing to be desired, meaning it could have not been better. I purchased front and rear WHITELINE sway bars, front & rear DBA rotors, and EBC YELLOWSTUFF brake pads. I called just after I ordered the parts because I received an "out of stock" email notification. When I called back to chat with someone *** answered the phone. He couldn't have been more knowledgeable about exactly what I was looking for when it came to the right brake pad for my needs (street/track). Come to find out the pads I picked (DBA's) were not the best pads for my application so im very glad I talked to ***!! I just recently had everything installed, bedded the pads and I am so happy I used GenRacer for my 16 R-Spec Coupe!! Thanks again ***!!!

So Awesome

Order came fast and looks amazing on my car. I did have one problem where one tail light would blink sequentially and the other didn’t. I sent an email late in the day inquiring about it. I wasn’t expecting a response until at least the following day as it was so late. Within an hour they had gotten back to me informing me of a switch on the inside of the housing where you can choose sequential or regular. Sweet! Top notch customer service.
