The only thing i didn't like about the install was i didn't have access to the proprietary KIA shock tool. It would have made the install easier and much more smoother. All the shock tools i bought are too small. I had to use a impact gun, 90 deg needle nose pliers, and a combination wrench. I don't like using impact guns on the strut stem.

Great stuff! So many variations for the Forte, which part did you get? I noticed there's a Sportline model now as well, which lowers the front another 10mm. I wouldn't mind have the front a touch lower, although I'm just barely clearing normal stuff as it is already.

I ordered the Pro-Kit... It's supposed to be stiffer than factory, bust still comfortable.... I'm 41, so I'm not looking for gocart stiffness.

The Evilla Stage 1 kit arrived today.
I took 20 min to install the front strut tower brace. I honestly think the rest will get done at Les Schwab or somewhere that offers free alignment. I'm not a wizard at all with alignment. 2 bars for underneath with the Eibach springs and no camber bolts is the idea.

Looks MUCH better with the caps on the strut bar.
