Copy paste from a recent thread asking about suspension mods on non-GT Fortes:

As for chassis braces, a strut bar makes a big difference to steering response and is pretty cheap all things considered. Evilla also makes a lower tie bar and rear sway bar. Lower tie bar did make a difference, but not as significant, and I haven't installed the rear sway bar on my car yet.

As for suspension itself, it depends on how expensive you want to go. If you want to just lower it, M&S Storm lowering springs will fit your car and lower it for $300. You can get cheap coilovers (Rev9) for around $500, decent coilovers from $600 (lower spec Godspeed) to $800 (higher-spec Godspeed), and great coilovers for $1200 (BCRacing).

Thanks, im gonna get the bc racing coilovers for sure. Are you sure they will fit the gt line?
i wish i bought the gt so i could make it faster. Sucks with the 2.0
Yes the ones linked fit the GT-Line and all other 2.0-powered 2019+ Fortes

been looking into spoilers to find a nice one that fits.. any ideas?
If you're wanting to replace that little flat gloss-black plastic thing on the trunk Kia laughingly calls a spoiler, be aware that under it is 5 large square holes - any spoiler you replace it with needs to be big enough to cover them.

Some lip spoilers on eBay will not fully cover the holes.

Ok Did the side skirts and I like but man this stuff is not forgiving once you stick it ☝🏾☝🏾
so it’s best to MAKE A PLAN AND TAKE YOUR TIME😂 I could have done a better job, you can see some of the tape, but I can live with that, now knowing it’s temperament
