I have a 2013 Elantra SE and the problem is KYB doesn't have a fitment for the 2012 or the 2013. I did check with my Hyundai parts guy and he says the OEM rear shocks are the same part number for the 2011, 2012 and 2013 ...so why would they not fit?
I may order them and if they don't fit I can return them.... just not sure why the say the KYBs won't fit if the OEM part numbers are the same :/
ok... according to Hyundai the 5th gen Elantras (2010-2013) all have the same part number for the rear shocks (55300 or 553003x200) so there should be no reason the KYB 554384 would not fit my 2013 SE. Anyway I ordered them through Summit Racing as they offer a non-restocking fee return policy and price match ... so with shipping, I got them both for $121.
Awesome news!!!! So you only replaced the rear? What about the front?
Also as they are adjustable, what did you set them at?
The fronts are actual struts...and the front end does not cause the car to do the funny things it does pertaining to bumps,ruts joints and all that. Also, the part number I listed for the KYB's will fit all 3 year models. (2011-2013) And no, they are not adjustable...it's an automatic adjusting shock.

Yup .... OEM Macphersons in the front, KYBs for the rear.... now just need a tower brace although there is a large plastic molding that covers the whole top of the firewall and shock towers so I am not sure how you would be able to attach a brace without removing that molding. This molding covers the space between the front windshield and below the hood so it's not like you can just take it off.
