(I searched for this topic and could not find anything. Sorry if I missed it if there is one.)
With 90K miles, our '13 Soul Base 1.6 Automatic was starting to pogo bounce a little in bumpy corners. I went to Advance Auto to get Monroe shocks ($44 each - the KYBs are $92 - the Kia ones are $170 - ouch!). Online and at the store, they told me Part #5657. Picked up a pair and took them to my trusty and skilled ex-Kia Gold-Certified technician who just opened his own shop.
Well - after he took the old shock off, he went to slide in the new one, and the mounting circle on the top of the shock is completely different. The original had a slightly smaller diameter circle with flat notches on opposite sides. These slid up into a groove and locked in place. Not so with the Monroe #5657. You can make it fit enough to get the bolt through, but "it just ain't right."
No KYBs in stock so I will have to wait and see if they have the correct mounting surface. In the meantime, I get a few more miles out of the old ones. I'm also going to check out the NAPA store brand.
BTW - I went on the NAPA site and they list the Monroe #5657 as fitting the '13 Soul also.
