First time I've seen any pictures of any items that come in the kit you sell. Thanks for posting it. It lets people see what you're actually selling. Sorry for wanting to know what my money goes for. I just thought that's what you do before you hand a complete stranger money! Thanks again...

I ended up getting more information on another 4x4 website and forum with no resistance whatsoever and was able to get drawings and part #'s and have already made my front spacers....

I saw the posts in regards to what the kit had in it and looked for days to find pictures of the kit but unfortunately most of the older post I was able to open had been deleted. This site has too many pop up ads and extra garbage that slows this site down that even turning them off on my end didn't help. I asked a simple question to the guy everyone was leading me to and was told to basically buy his kit in order to find out the information I asked for. Come on people....! There are not 50,000 people building lifted Kia's that a guy can't give out helpful info!!! When I determine the correct size of the coil over shocks I will be using, I'll absolutely post all the necessary information to anyone who wants it with drawings and part numbers because it's honestly not that big of deal! Sorry... was not warned ahead of time of the thin skin of those using this site.

Hey guys I'm still pretty new to this site but it has helped me tremendously with the infamous hesitation off idle but that's a different post. I purchased a 3 inch spacer kit about a yr ago from everett that has performed flawlessly in that time. The rear lift springs com from a jeep tj hard top. I've since upgraded to some 31x10.50x15 Kenda Klever mud tires mounted on a 15x 8 chrome mod. And am in the process of relocating the rear shocks to a Toyota style setup. My issue is I've reached the absolute max in suspension flex and CV livability at those extreme angles. I also have a welded rear spider gear in the works as well that I plan to use a high temp nickle rod to ensure proper penetration. Sorry about getting off subject but I thought a little background on the wheeling style I use. Its not a basher but I definitely push it through some things that definitely exceed the suspensions current capabilities. That being said what's the next logical direction? Do I continue trying to modify and strengthen the current drivetrain or do I toss the 286,000 mile setup for a complete Toyota setup from a rolled 82 Toyota truck. Once again sorry for the long speech. Any response will be appreciated. I'm also having a hard time loading pictures. I'll post asap.

There is one consideration to carefully review.

The larger the tires, the more weight. And, the extra weight does begin to take a toll on engines and transmissions.

The Kia does have a durable engine based on stock vehicle weight.

You are getting up in the milage range where it might be best to shift to the Toyota. More parts selection at a reasonable price and a proven engine.

That's about what I came up with. I'm also interested in the vortec 4.3 swap so look out for a sas'd sporty around the local Nor-Cal wheeling spots this summer. I plan to run some skinny 35s maybe a 35x10.50 bogger. Also looking for a 2 door sportage to build.

You don't use jeep LIFT springs for the rear, you use STOCK jeep springs.
