Lowering springs???

5960 Views 20 Replies 7 Participants Last post by  beanvs925
I have a 2021 GT-Line, I have 2 questions.
1. What would be the best springs for comfort, performance and reliability/dependability?
2. Would putting the springs on cause the warranty to be VOIDED?
Thank you in advance for any help and information.

I've been trying to find springs specifically for the GT-Line but not having any luck.

Hopefully someone with a non-GT forte can provide some info.
Appreciate the information, hope someone has something.

You don’t have a lot of options for a non-GT. GT lowering springs will work, but the gap will be pretty big in the back. I wouldn’t recommend it. If you can swing for coilovers, Godspeed and Rev9 both make some (low end Godspeed: Godspeed MonoSS Coilovers Kia Forte Sedan [Torsion Beam] (2019-2020) MSS0183 High end Godspeed: Godspeed MonoRS Coilovers Kia Forte Sedan w/ Rear Torsion Beam (19-20) MRS1421 Rev9: ) Haven’t read about peoples experience with either Godspeed option, but people seem to like the Rev9 option for the money. This also allows you to dial ride comfort and height to your preferences.
For lowering springs, you basically only have one option. People have recommended either M&S Storm lowering springs (K5 Optima Store has them - Storm Lowering Springs as well as on M&S’ own website K3 FORTE (BD) LOWERING SPRINGS — M&S America ) or Eibach lowering springs for the AD chassis (2017-19 I think) non-turbo Hyundai Elantra, which is basically the same car. Can’t find a US link to those though, and I also haven’t been able to find anyone who has experience with either option. I’ve been running into the same problem, since I want to lower my ‘21 FE manual. Might just have to bite the bullet on one set and go for it.
Really appreciate all the help and info. Guess I'll have to just make up my mind now lol.

One of our Australian members put Eibach springs on their non-GT View attachment 83839
Looks good, but can you use the oem shocks and struts with no issues?
Yeah, the lowering is not extreme so it's fine.
That's a good thing lol, appreciate the time and information, thank you.
