    Thank you Joe. I agree this is a great price and product for those not wanting to damage their OEM components when running lowering springs.

    This is absolutely correct. Before now, you would either have to go with coilovers, or suffer ruining the OEM components prematurely. We've gone ahead and added the optional spring add on to the page.

    Yes correct!

    Seeing as d2 collaborated on these it might make sense that the d2 springs would be the best fit, I guess time will tell. I wonder how they would do on my eibach springs.
    I think these are designed to work on any aftermarket lowering spring we sell on the site. Personally I believe that the D2 springs may be a bit better quality then the TruHart brand, however we are offering both of them now on our site so the customer can choose what they like best.

    So these plus aftermarket lowering springs versus coilovers. I know coils offer ride height adjustability but other than that fact, why would you ever purchase coils now?
    Thanks Jason. Yes this is the same logic we're thinking too and why we think this is going to be amazing selling product. As of typing this right now, we have already sold 4 sets in the last 12 hours it's been up on the site. For all of the customers out there who do not care to adjust the ride height with coilovers, this is going to be a great inexpensive alternative.

    Quote Originally Posted by RichardTheKiaTech View Post

    Done and done sir. Please take a look back on the product page.

    Just checked out the store site.. 1.6 in the front, 1.5 in the rear (if you go w the spring addon) that's the lowest drop on springs yet isn't it?

    Yes that is correct. These are the same as the D2 springs when it comes to the drop height.

    These are the best option for those wanting the most drop from lowering springs but not wanting to got to coilovers.

    you had the original stock shocks and struts and lowering springs at that mileage? If so, wow, I'm impressed. Our cars call for new struts and shocks at 100K and that's with OEM springs! #impressed!

    Wow that is pretty impressive.


    We have confirmed that the TruHart Shocks/Struts are compatible on all brands of lowering springs for the Optima & Sonata!
