    It is one of the best investments I've made, now for some sway bars and links for better handling! Thanks again brother

    Did your struts/shocks come with the boot shown above or is that re purposed from the stock strut/shock? Mine did not come with those...

    Gotcha. I realized the strut mount would have to be re-used. I was wondering about the boot.

    Anyone want to chime in on these shocks with the H&R's?

    I think we're looking at another 2-3 weeks, maybe sooner though.

    I have the H&R's on my YF Sonata with stock shocks. I am considering H&R's on the Optima, but wouldn't rule out other springs if people thought the combo of these shocks and a different spring resulted in a better ride, performance, drop, etc.

    When it comes to the different spring options being used with the TruHart Strut & Shock setup, I would not say any particular spring manufacturer would work better than others. I think the ride, performance and drop would solely be based on the specifications of the brand you decide to go with. I personally really like H&R as they are outstanding quality. I had them on my BMW 335i before getting into Kia and never had an issue.
