  1. 2003-2010 Sorento Forum
    Hey all. I had to replace my front lower ball joints on my 2008 Sorento. There are 3 bolts that hold the ball joint to the lower control arm. I had to burn them all out with an acetylene torch, so now I have to replace them, along with washers and nuts. But of course, there is no part number...
  2. 2011 - 2013 (XM) Sorento Forum
    Hi, I'm new to the forum and have been searching around on this issue. I purchased a Sorento 2012 EX AWD V6 from my parents early last year knowing it rides like an old 1 ton truck. But now my wife and I are starting to get tired of it. The Sorento is in really good shape and has always had...
  3. Kia Forte/Cerato (TD) and Koup Discussion Forum
    I was rear ended/pushed into another car last month and as a result had some extensive body work done on my 2019 Kia Forte LXS. I picked the car up from the body shop a few days ago. I noticed after picking up the car that the alignment was off as the car veers to the right and I have to hold...
  4. 2003-2010 Sorento Forum
    hey guys, new to the forum, and a "new" owner of a 2007 Kia Sorento diesel. I recently got it from my dad, so I've known this vehicle for a while, but now its time to change the front and rear suspension, control arms, etc. , I was wondering if the suspension from the petrol version is the same...
  5. 2016 - 2020 Sorento Forum
    I have a 2018 Kia Sorento LX 2.4l, about 47k miles on it. Bought it new a few years ago. It just started to make a rubber squeak noise front the front when going over bumps or if the road is irregular and makes the car bounce vertically. I was not able to reproduce by just pushing the front up...
  6. 2G (2003-2010) Sportage
    I am building an 06 2.7 Sportage for an overland rig. I put 40mm spacers above the struts but still need 1-2" of space. I was thinking that maybe if I can find heavier springs that would do it. I need to replace the struts anyways. Does anyone have any suggestions on springs, struts, or any...
  7. 2016 - 2020 Sorento Forum
    Hi guys, Anyone else who thinks suspension is harsh? So, I just got mine today, a 2016 model. I purchased it unseen, and have never tried a Sorento before. But according to many reviews the suspension is said to be soft, and comfy.. I love the car, but the suspension is really hard, especially...
  8. 1G (1993 - 2002) Sportage
    I have the opportunity to buy some Bilstein shocks and springs off of a Tacoma for a really good price. Has any tried putting these in a 1st gen Sporty before? Does any one know if they’ll fit?
  9. Kia Cee'd Forum
    Hello, I’ve got a 2013 (U.K.) cee’d sports wagon, great car, efficient and comfortable, but I do find that on rough country roads and going over some speed bumps, it scrapes a lot. I previously had a Megan estate and found that rode higher and I didn’t have that problem. Is it possible to lift...
  10. 2016 - 2020 Sorento Forum
    Hi, I was wondering if anyone has upgraded their struts on their 2016 or newer Sorento to get a more firm ride? Or simply bc mileage is high and they are due to be replaced? These things are notably soft ride off the showroom floor and as noted in many auto reviews. Looking for suggestions...
