Hello, I have a 2013 Kia Optima EX turbo with about 166,000 kms. I am looking into lowering my car. I want the most subtle drop possible. After doing some research it seems that Eibach/Storm springs provide pretty subtle drops. I want a subtle drop as my Optima is my daily and I also have to get through tough Canadian winters! That being said, how have your experiences been riding on aftermarket springs? Does your car handle rougher on springs that only provide about an inch of a drop? Any rubbing/scraping issues? Are springs safe enough or would you get aftermarket shocks too? First time lowering a car so looking for some input, thanks!

Unfortunately, the Eibach springs for the 2011-2015 Kia Optima have been permanently discontinued by the manufacturer. :(

Let us know if you need any assistance from us.

I had H&R's on my Sonata SE Turbo with stock shocks for 50k miles. Never hurt the shocks or struts, but the car only had 10k on it when I put the springs in. Also have H&R's on my Optima now with the TruHart shocks/struts.
