Purchase bump! Got these about 2k miles ago and they look great! Definitely a difference in the daily driving experience. The quality of these is also great being a mid-tier set up.

Pros: looks! A lowered car is pretty sweet and these are adjustable to suit different heights. They also allow dampening so you could have a more stiffer ride or a more comfortable ride. You can also feel a lot more comfortable turning as the car won't be susceptible to rolling as it's closer to the ground. I kept mine around the middle at 14 but it can soften the ride up to 32 levels but don't ever expect it to be as soft as stock. Just not the way it is.

a con of these is vibrations! A lowered car is expected to have these and you'll notice them if you're used to stock. However, I used it as an opportunity to get rid of some needless noises through Kia warranty lol.

Definitely go for these over springs if you can afford them. You'll save yourself paying bills in the long run if you run just lowering springs. Thanks again David! Using me lol

Thank you for your order and sorry for the late response here. Glad to hear you are enjoying the ride height and quality of these coilovers. It has been about a month since you have installed these, do you have any additional feedback about the product or how the ride feels?

Well, I have had mine on for about a week and a half now and let me tell you. GET THEM!! David got them to me asap like I needed and I drove 8 hours one way. Drove around for a week and then another 8 hour drive and no problems with them and 110% great ride for being lowered.

Thanks David for being the best!!

Is cost the only advantage of lowering springs versus coilovers?
Pretty much, lowering springs are good and obviously cost less than coilovers, however you will wear out your OEM shocks & struts pretty fast.

Coilovers are adjustable springs, that include new shocks and struts to match the new adjustable springs being installed.

Finally got my D2 Coilovers installed.









Very nice, looks great! Happy to see you are enjoying the new ride height. After a few weeks, they may settle a bit more.

Thank you for placing your order with us.
