Ahh this makes sense.It was on a lift, hence the super fast install lol
I think his question was in fact related to the rear diffuser since he saw that you had also ordered it. I think he commented in here in an attempt to get in touch with you since he had pm'ed you already.Sorry Maxie about the delay on responding your questions. Are your questions regarding installation on the rear sway bar? because i only see questions on the inbox regarding the installation on the carbon fiber rear diffuser.
1) Was it necessary to drill two small holes through the upper and lower tabs on both of the outer ends to zip tie the corners for better fitment? Reason I ask is, the guys at K5 Optima Store recommend drilling the holes and using zip ties.
The Kia diffuser has 2 screw points at the outer ends (corners) of each side of the diffuser. So I'm confused why there is a need to drill small holes and use zip ties on both outer ends unless of course the carbon fiber diffuser was not designed/equipped with these screw points?
A. Its really up to you how you want to set it up in my case i didn't use zip ties nor did i drilled holes in the outer ends.
I only push in the tabs into the bumper and put the two clips on the bottom of the diffuser that attaches to the bumper bracket.
2) Any key learnings or notes of caution you can pass along in regards to removing the Kia Diffuser and installing the Carbon Fiber Diffuser?
A. installation is really simple and quick. when removing the stock diffuser you would have to remove the screws that are on the sides of the diffuser with a phillips screw driver theres one screw on each side then you would have to remove the two clips on the bottom of the diffuser that is attached to the bumper bracket and then slowly unclip the tabs to fully remove the diffuser. When putting the CF diffuser just snap the tabs in the bumper and put the two clips at the bottom.
