I am tryin to find parts for my94 sephia but having difficulties with weather it's a ga rs or ls, my title does not have it on there at all I do know though it is a 1.8l motor...

Parts that I need to get
Front struts both left and right
Driver side cv joint/boot assembly
Injectors spark plugs
Cold air intake kit

My car has 212000 miles on it

I'm trying to get it to keep going strong and not kill it before October
And I think this is the best way to go about it
I was told that I'd have to replace the struts and get another new cv joint for it because well they are still factory and I can feel my wheel shake pretty hard at a descent speed,

Will take pics of the engine and I think the serials if needed so I can learn how to find parts for the car

This site is pretty awesome thank you guys for hosting this forum to get help

It would help if everyone knew where you were located ...Kansas, USA.
Have you tried RockAuto.com? They have quite a few parts for KIAs and their priced are pretty good also.

+1 on rock auto i got all my re-manufactured injectors from there for $38.00 a peice among other parts i needed, check the vin there are many ways you can decode it to figure out what it is, Free Car VIN Number - VIN Decoder for Kia Autos & Vehicles. this website should tell you what you need to know about your car, including year engine size, color (hope you already know that one lol) etc.. not sure if it says its a RS/LS/GS but ive heard there is hardly i difference besides options of power windows a/c, from what i can see 94 only came with a 1.6 sohc, the 95 came with 1.8 dohc 1.6 dohc and 1.6 sohc, so its probabley a 95, anyway hope this helps.

Please fill out the cp section about your profile info...
I located Kansas through your IP Address which was close enough to say you're in the USA and the model info was correct.
The CV joint boots may be different so check both years to see if they are the same.
