Okay, I'll break the ice and grab onto this slow pitch...

How many of what???

Okay, your goal is 3" of lift front and back. Generallly it is done with four appropriate size springs to replace the stock springs. I am not a Kia expert. But, there are posts in the archives where Jeep Rubicon springs have been used on the Sportsge.

In addition, there are some coil spring spacers that can add to your lift. Generally they start at 1" and are in one inch increments.
