i think you would be looking at doing a custom lift. i was actually looking at my mechanics sorento and trying to figure out a lift for it.

I would just keep in mind that in many cases if you modify the vehicle, you can void the manufacture's warranty. If you really want to mod, you're still best off keeping the Sporty even if you buy the Sorento.


01 Convertible; Electric Fan; 3" Up Your Kia lift spacers; Tj 104's; 31x10.5x15's on Centerlines; Rear LSD.
GONE, all I have left are a few spare parts and the wheels.
