Rear - rather than use spacers, either go for Jeep TJ Wrangler springs (about 3", tagged 104AA) or aftermarket Sporty springs (Kings 40mm, Dobinsons 70mm). If you really wanna use spacers, you can find 50mm poly ones on ebay for TJ Jeeps

Front - Kings or Dobinsons springs, or a 40-50mm spacer. Can make your own if you're handy.

Will the stock sportage shocks handle the Kings springs with a lift of 40-50mm? Eventually I would get extended shocks but can't afford to do it all at once.

Stock shocks with Kings is fine.
RAV4 shocks are longer and a bit underdamped for the Jeep springs, I haven't sourced a better alternative yet.
RAV4 shocks and standard or Kings will allow your rear springs to fall out <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/scared.gif" alt="" />

Hey guys, I'm looking at getting a set of 436AAs for my Sporty. I don't see much info on them, but for the price I'm willing to try them out. They're off of an '06 Unlimited, and I'd love to know if anyone has any input on them. Cross-referencing them to a Moog part number, they are 3226. I know the 104AA and 106AA are 3227 and 3229, so I'm assuming they will at least fit. But how much of a lift?

Body Damage is Cool
Do you need them for a lifted Sportage or do you need them for a stock suspension sportage?

I am also running a front diff drop with the extended forks, with 40 mm lift springs (no spacers) making a approx goal of 90 mm lift in theory although I expect it is a bit higher., with no rubbing.

I am in the process with a suspension company in QLD AUSTRALIA called Performance Suspension http://www.performancesuspension.com.au. In designing a new AArm for a 4 inch lift to regain some down travel and take the pressure off the upper balljoint causing separation in extreme cases as RUNT 313 has managed to find in his offroad excursions.

Thanks to Runt313 we were also able to provide Chris the company owner with a set of extended forks to see if he can reproduce them. He is visiting his production factory in Taiwan where he gets.a lot of his development work done early next year and is taking the forks with him to see if they can reproduce them.

He is quite keen to modify a Sporty although he realises it will be a low volume seller so if it comes off if every one can get behind his efforts by purchasing that would AWSOME. He is also looking into struts and rear shocks to suit with heavier valving but that is further down the track. Just want the AARMS and hopefully extended forks in production. So if there is an Aussie near the Gold Coast looking to lift their Sporty, give Chris a call as he want's to get his hands on a vehicle to see if he can get all these items to work.

I have sent him struts, forks and AArms but nothing beats having the actual vehicle in the workshop. An interesting observation was the stuts from a VW AMAROCK PICKUP WERE A SIMILAR DESIGN TO THE SPORTY's and he was hoping he could modify to fit.

I was attracted to this company originally as they had designed and released in Australia extended ball joints for the Nissan D40 Navara/pathfinder and I was hoping they could do the same thing for the Sportage.

Here is hoping the AArms come off and I am testing a set before to long in the new year. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/patriot.gif" alt="" />

Hello,

I am from Brazil and my Sportage is with 45mm lift on suspension.
I'm having a lot of problems with the front arm and ball joint.
Have you finished developing this kit?
Not found on the website indicated no kit to sportage.

Tried getting some simple info on stroke length and shock size from the "upyourkia" dude but was met with some resistance... Apparently wanting to know what the stroke length of his coilovers are to determine what tire size to use is not a common question... I thought we were all here to help one another out??? Am I missing something?


It hurts worse when its cold!!!
