    Is anyone aware of a strut available for the 14-19 Soul designed for lowering springs? My understanding is that lowering springs on a stock length strut will not work as designed and lead to premature strut wear. Bilstein makes a line of struts called "B8" designed for this purpose, but they do...

    Hey all. Every link I click on seems to be broken, besides the Storm Springs. And I can't find anything for exhaust for the second gen 2.0. No local custom shops around me, so I kinda need a prebuilt I can install. Maybe because it's been so long since the links have been posted? I don't...
  3. How To / DIY (Gen 2)
    Good day all, In the original thread "2014 Kia Soul Lowering Springs Installed!!! (SMA Springs)'' it is stated that in the Gen 1 DIY forum that there is a lowering spring install that the OP followed. I have been looking for the last 45 minutes and using the search feature and have come up...

    I purchased Storm springs from KDMholic and was not disapointed. It took almost 2 months to recieve from Korea but well worth the wait! They actually soften the ride dramatically and give you much better cornering! I must say 10 out of 10. I also swaped out my Konig Wheels and got some New...

    Hi everybody, I would like to sell something I think a lot of you would be interested in but I can't figure out how to post it in the for sale forum. If maybe someone could move this post there I would appreciate it. I have a brand new pair of lowering springs from h and r. Cost me over $200. I...
  6. Aftermarket modifications (Gen 2)

    Anyone out there who has installed this brand of lowering springs? Storm Lower Coil down Springs 4EA 1SET For KIA New Soul 2014 2015+ I was wondering how low it will lower the Soul? and this may sound stupid but are the springs marked front and rear or are all 4 the same? Thanks for any help
  8. Aftermarket modifications (Gen 1)
    I haven't thought much about lowering the soul ... yet. However, I came across some used parts on my local CL. An individual is offering some no name lowering springs WITH the front struts off a soul with 27k miles. I figured out they were the 1" DNA springs; yes, the 90$ "no name" ones...

    I'm planning on lowering my 2013 by 2 inches all the way around. I was just wondering if I need to do anything with it, like an alignment or anything in that sort of area?
  10. Aftermarket modifications (Gen 2)
    Hey guys! I've been posting about getting some SMA lowering springs from South Korea and I've finally installed them!! They said they would be 1" drop all around, but it ended up being 1.5" in the front and 1" in the back. They look great! Hit up Dan Hahn if you guys want to order some at...

  13. Aftermarket modifications (Gen 1)
    Is there a 2" lowering spring for the 2010 soul? I know there's coilovers but those aren't in the budget right now.
  14. Aftermarket modifications (Gen 1)
    Im going to get heated for this BUT whats wrong with the ebay springs they sell for $100 as opposed to H&R's, Eibachs, BG, etc? Are these cheap springs not replicates of the real deal? BTW I will only buy items within north America so they are not chinese. Any input would be appreciated. I will...

    Lowering Spring claims? I been looking around the forums for a long long wile now, this one as well as soulhamsters. looking for references for various lowering springs. The ONLY brand i had consistant reviews on were B&G, they are good, can be slightly bouncy and they are 1.6 in lower in front...
  16. Aftermarket modifications (Gen 1)
    I've had my 2014 soul since March and I'm still waiting to see if anybody has made lowering springs/coilovers for the 2014 model. Anybody hear anything about them or any rumors?
  17. Soul Tire & Wheel (Gen 1)
    so i have the original oem 16x6 wheels on my kia. i want a set of 16x7 wheels. i was wondering if i could just take the tires i have an just stretch them an inch. they are newer tires also.
  18. Soul Tire & Wheel (Gen 1)
    Well I definitely chose the wrong tire for winter. I have a 2010 Soul! with 18" wheels. I bought some Nanking Noble sports All seasons and had them sipped. Well they suck in the snow here in central NY. I thought about lowering the PSI in the front tires to get the tire to flex more but i know...
