    I've seen other posts about this but none have any answers about sourcing parts or retrofitting anything. Does anyone have any information about adding a 2" lift with suspension spacers?

    There is a Kia Soul lift kit out there for sale it is about $300. It is a 3” lift which from what I was told it is the biggest lift you can do without doing major changes to the car. Any higher and you would have to change a lot of stuff for example the drive shafts coming out of the...

    The lift supports on my 2014 failed (only 60,200 miles). I've gone online looking to purchase a couple of new ones and most sites show the supports for 2010-2013 model Souls and then 2014-2017. Supports for the 2014 model are few and far between, whereas the 2013 supports are plentiful . Anyone...

New batteries in the remote/keys, and every other function works fine. Neither remote/key works Any ideas where to start...

    I have 185,000 miles on a 2013 Kia Soul - and I still love it. However, last week I started having door unlock issues. The driver door will lock and unlock with the fob, and the inside door control. The passenger doors and liftgate will lock with the fob, and the inside driver door control...

    So I just picked up my 2014 Soul yesterday. After getting it home I was just going around the vehicle to get more familiar with it and noticed that the rear lift gate won't open with the doors unlocked. You have to hold down the button on the FOB for opening it. Is this normal? I guess it...

    I never had the lift supports on any car go bad before and mine just went bad yesterday. I have to hold up my trunk now if I want to get in there. I went on ebay and found two supports for less than $30 new. They are cheap to buy I guess. Part# 81780-2K000 I wonder if the extreme heat did it.

    Installed a Redline Hydraulic front hood lift today. Works great!!!! Nice not to have to use the stock stick to hold the hood up. Lifts slow and gentle and drops nicely.

    Man, I don't know for the life of me why those 2011 pull handles bug the crap out of me. Of all the updates that one bugs me the most. It seems to destroy the look of the side of the car. Besides they are just wimpy looking as all get out. I seem to focus on the weirdest things, so maybe I'm...
