  1. Aftermarket modifications (Gen 2)
    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...
  2. 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...

    So I am using my Soul as a work vehicle (replaced my dead F-150). I am curious if anyone has experience with load helper springs to help keep the rear end high when its loaded down? I can google things and talk to local garages, just figured one of you might have some experience with it.
  4. Aftermarket modifications (Gen 2)
    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...

    For those of you who just want to tinker and don't see the point in dropping tons of money into your commuter car's suspension. I scored some Manzo springs for 40$ shipped off eBay! I just got the package and they're the real deal. Go do a quick search.

    Hello all, There is a local CL add for some 8 month old H&R springs. I am looking for reviews/opinions/pictures on these springs alone. If you can compare them to other manufacturers let me know! However, I don't want this thread to turn into "I have ___ springs and they're the best."...

    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?

    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...

    So I've been wanting to do some minor suspension work to my 2011 Kia Soul Base. Trying to make it feel a little tighter and lower the center of gravity a bit for AutoX. I've pretty much settled on B&G lowering springs or H&R lowering springs. They offer about the same drop (on paper) and similar...
