  3. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    In case you weren't aware of this...the lower cover on the SX/SXL has a removable skid plate. The skid plate is the part with the "fins" below the silver/chrome trim. Once the cover is removed the skid plate is held on by the silver/chrome trim, about 14 screws (9 of these screws hold the...

    Anybody on here that has a 2016 Kia Optima SX with a rear end like the one pictured? The lower cover with dual exhaust appears to be the same style as the single exhaust cover - not the "normal" cover on the Optima SXs/SXLs I can find pictures of. There is a seller on ebay that claims to have...

    Anybody know what the best springs to use would be? I wanna lower it just enough for looks, and eventually wanna camber just my rear wheels, but that's coming in some due time.

I'm in Megans Strret Coilovers, and I think out of the box is 1.5 all around but I feel like I can lower it a tad more. :) AHH THE DILEMMA!! If I do drop it more do I need to...

    I just purchased a used 2014 Kia Optima hybrid LX about a week ago and I just noticed today that the passenger seat is lower to the floor then the drivers seat. Is this normal? A defect? Or did the person before me modify it? Thanks!

  15. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    Know most of the discussions are around the 4G Kia, but thought I'd share a 3G problem and hope they changed the substrate used in various parts of the 4G. A few months ago I noticed the left rear LCA was badly rusted, then received a letter of the voluntary recall to have the rust...
  16. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    What do you guys think in regards to lowering an Optima. What are some pros and cons. I have posted a pic below of mine. I am having a hard time deciding on whether or not to do it. I do know that if I lower it I will have to use the Eibach springs. I am just looking for other people's opinions...
