    Looking for front strut assemblies for my 2013 Kia Optima SX. I currently am running K-sport coilovers and I guess it is common for these to rotate on the hat and make loud ping noises but I am over the sound. I am located in Plainfield, IL.

    So my 2012 Optima Hybrib had a noise coming from the rear. Took it to the dealer. In the end it was coming from front and back. Ended up replacing front left and right control arms and upper strut mounts as well as both rear stabilizer links. Throw in an alignment and we are at $2500...

    I have noticed that the front suspension clunks on my Optima will go away when the roads are wet. I don't mean when it is raining and with the rain splash etc. masking out any suspension noise. The suspension seems to get noticeably quieter when going over road imperfections and bumps... The...
