Need a Spot
I know that i should probably buy a 4x4 sportage but right now that is out of the question due to time and money.

but regarding my kia does anyone know how i should go about lifting my 2wd sporty, i heard that tj springs will work in the back.

should i just go with spring spacers, or do spring spacers only work for 4wd vehicles.

please help me out.

even a 2wds vehicle with large enough tires can do some minor, minor off-roading.

2" upyourkia spacers front and rear, or 2" spacers front with TJ spring rear or a 4" lift from RGS.

The only way to get the lowest point of the Sporty (Diff pumpkin) off the ground is with bigger tyres, the suspension lifts and body lift aid in clearance, but you can fit 30's with no (little) rubbing, on stock rims and stock height. lifting without adding larger tyres dosn't help the ground clearance.
