I have a 2015 Kia optima LX. I recently had my passenger side rear strut and link replaced. Strutt at my cost and link under warranty. I noticed today the drivers side rear is making that thumping sound as I heard before. I ordered all new strut/shocks from K5 Optima store cause of that first problem. Seeing the pandemic is still effecting things and it'll probably be a while to get my car into my local dealer.
Is it possible for me to do the link myself? Is it difficult? I'd be doing it my driveway with regular hand tools, Jack, Jack stands, etc. Is it a simple unbolt, remove, install the new one and is that it?
Also, has anyone else had the link issues I've encountered on my 15 LX?

Thanks in advance everyone!

Welcome to the Optima Forums!

Looks like you joined almost 2 years ago, but 1st time posting now. :)

I am not sure on the link issue, so I will let someone else address that, but wanted to welcome you.

Oh and thank you for your new order with us as well. ;)
