Hi all I'm looking for suggestions on gas charged front struts for the Picanto. I need them for my GO-4 interceptor 3. It has the Kia Picanto engine/trans /sub-frame in the rear. It has so much sway in the struts even with a sway bar. Anyone modified the suspension for autocrossing using HD gas charged struts? If so what brand struts do you use, where can I buy them? Thanks

It is a three wheeler so isn't going to handle well and indeed hasn't been designed to do so.

What about trying a strut brace? Or thicker sway bar?

The spring rate & weak (soft ride) struts need upgrade!

Is the picanto the same as a rio? We never have the picanto in the US (to my knowledge). But if you know the year of the picanto I'm sure you can find some coil overs for the european market, or if the are the same as rio then in the us. I have godspeed on my 2013 rio. Hope that helps
