Need a Spot
What make and model are the coil overs? What are the spring rates? How did you mount the shocks?

the shocks were custom made by bilstein the ride height can be adjusted from a few inches below stock to 4"+ over stock there is no cutting grinding or welding required to install just pull out the stock strut bolt the upyourkia coilover in the stock mounts adjust the spring to your desired ride height and you are ready to go thanks for looking.check this link out www.facebook.com/UpYourKia
