Hey Paul, do you know if these springs lower the car 1.46" regardless of whether it is a sx or ex/lx model? Not sure if the sx models are lower stock or if they just have a "sport tuned" suspension?

The sport tuned suspension just means its a tighter suspension not lower. At least that was the case with the KIA Optima.

So you'll get the same drop on any trim

If I get these what else will I be needing? Will the stock shocks work properly on my 2015 forte5 ex?

Hey Carlos,

You are able to run springs on stock shocks and struts! Keep in mind that stock shocks and struts are not designed to run at lowered heights so running springs will reduce the longevity of the life of the stock suspension.

Although we have customers than have been running springs on their stock suspension for 50k+ miles and still going.

Awesome, what's a good set to buy? I want to just get everything at once and not struggle with ride comfortability

You'll want to go with fully adjustable coilovers then. Shoot us an email and we can send you a custom invoice on a set of BC coilovers. These are one of the few suspension options out for the 14-16s at the moment. [email protected]
