Was wondering if Kia made a SOHC 4x4 Auto in 95. Gearing in the 5 speed trans is different (lower 1st and 2nd). Thought they may have done the same in the auto.
Do you have a folded fin trans oil cooler or is it the coil pipe under the front splash pan?
Anyway, should be a great project.

Should work same part # as per rock auto
you don't have to remove the hub just the 2 phillips head screws ( pada)and throw them away their just there to hold the the rotor during assembly.

The heads of my screws stripped so I just drilled the head of the little buggers.
