Kia K5 GT-S Springs

Kia K5 GT-S Springs

 The Kia Optima has gone through many phases since its introduction in 2000 and was never really looked at as a sport sedan. That all changed with the current generation of K5. The sharper body lines paired with the more modern headlight and taillight design gives the car a more gaudy aesthetic. Just like the new Camry we discussed in a previous post, we set out to make a spring that compliments the new aggressive looking K5.
These springs boast an estimated drop of 1.40" in front and 1.65" in rear. It takes an aggressive drop to reduce the wide margin between the fender and the wheel. ARK GT-S Springs give you a better aesthetic without compromising your ride quality.
