Body Damage is Cool
1 lift kit that is available has 3-4 inch front lift from spacers made by upyourkia and using TJ rear springs. I also sell uhmwpe pucks can lift the body 1.4".
As far as a bolt on SAS, I am not aware of one.
Where are you located where Kia's are so cheap?

Need a Spot
i live in california near fresno. it came in to the auto shop that i work at and it needed a couple of things done to it. the parts it needed wernt expensive but it was labor intensive and they didint have the money so they gave it to my boss and he was going to sell it to a junk yard for 150 so i bought it. ive spent maybe 400 plus my labor getting some of the problems fixed and puttung a sterio in it and off i go.

Wow!
You got a real bargain <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/kewl.gif" alt="" />

As far as a SAS I dont think that it can be possible with such a "Simple Budget" as is evident.

If you paid only 200.00 for this ride---You should Prolly be looking at some premier maintinence issues first!

Check out the main points at hand and rectify those first...

Do the initial stuff first--Or you are asking for problems later................

BTW---Don't even ask me how much cash that I laid out for my first 2 Sportages!!!!!!!!!! <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/evil.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/angry.gif" alt="" />

don't think you will find a new starter not even from the dealer, all of them are Remans. now, or you find a low mile used one. If your Kia has a lot of miles I would change the T/B and check tensioners and the spring, and check the pump if it's has over 100,000 miles I would change the pump. I bet it never had all the fld. replaced. they brought it in for some costly repairs check the list and do the most important then go down the list.
