I've used Pro-kits before on my previous car and they offer a good mild drop. This kit should be perfect for those who worry about ground clearance.

Not much wheel gap either with the 20" wheels on those Eibach springs.

Eibach's Work Great... REALLY GREAT!

Hi All. I finally made my decision and it was a good one. I'm so happy my eyes are watering. My Polar White Stinger has a set of Eibach's on it and the ride and handling are near perfect! Because I'm familiar with the law of diminishing returns, I'm happy and I don't see a need to go with shocks later. Pictures attached. The car rides much nicer over the tar strips and is much stiffer over the g bumps, with 90% of the excess motion in the rear being eliminated. I can live with that because I'm 56. But if I was 29 I'd probably still mod the shocks 'cause I'd be pushing the limits. Now I just drive fast, with some common sense dialled in. So ALL GOOD. Check out the pics!

FYI, the springs are dual rate. The first ~1" of travel is a lower rate than stock (softer) and the rest of the travel is a higher rate than stock (stiffer). Thank you Eibach!

Yes. 225 40-19 front and 255 35-19 read. That's the stock summer tires.

Now all I need is a great place to go. Southern Ontario this time of year is as scenic as the moon and with just as many nice roads. When spring comes around I may take Rout 219 south of Buffalo into the Allegheny's. Great drive. Or I79 south of Erie to Pittsburgh for a more 'cover lots of ground quickly' experience, or I75 south of Detroit to mix it up with a crazy blacked out Mercedes or two willing to push the limits... Does that make me juvenile and immature? Hell Yeah!

No way. I don't do anything myself. Like oddball said in Kelly's Heroes: "I don't fix 'em. I just drive 'em". Even though I'm technical and mechanical, I had to keep a box of bandaids in my toolbox. I sold all my tools at a garage sale back in '83 when I was 22. I kept the box of bandaids just in case. Go figure.
That's the long way of saying the dealer did it for $400, and I saved a lot on bandaids.

I just got back from a drive this afternoon. With the stock springs a drive would leave me troubled and disappointed frankly. Suspension is a big part of the enjoyment of a car's dynamics. Today I got home and told my wife I forgot how happy a new car makes me. I've heard millennial's refer to a 'happy place' and never really understood what they meant until today. It's not an event like having a baby or getting married or even relaxing on a dock. It's going to the place you know once you're there you'll be happy. For me, now, it's my Stinger GT with Eibach springs, doing about 145K! (That's 90 mph)

Looks very nice now.

Did you have to redo the alignment/camber etc?

Actually the settings are not in the alignment computer yet. The dealer is getting them from Kia Canada ASAP so I can do the alignment. There is no camber adjustment on the car. So all they are setting is toe and the car tracks straight for now. So whatever the 1.4" puts the toe out by, it's not much. But I hope to do the alignment tomorrow. That's the plan anyway. I just got into work after a 50 km (30 mi) commute and I'm so happy. :)

Our dealer doesn't have them also, will appreciate if you can post the OEM settings so we can sticky them for reference.

very good review on the Eibach's [MENTION=148]Steve O[/MENTION].
Let us know once the dealer provides the OEM alignment specs and also post some pics of a before and after alignment readings (may be in a separate post so that we can sticky it).
Good to hear you found your happy place [twothumb]
