I have 1996 Kia Sephia with a 1.8 liter engine. Sometimes I run the Kia on the dirt road, but the Kia's front struts would leak oil. I need to find a strut that can take the rough roads. Which struts would someone recommend? I thought about the KBY, any other ideas? And where would I obtain them?

If you are running on rough dirt roads, it may not have been too smart to go to the 16"/40 profile tires mentioned in your other thread. That's really a street profile.

2 Kias

I have two Kias, I'm relating to the stock tires, but where I live there's really nothing you can do about my situation. I still need to know which struts are the best for the road condition. Thanks...

OK, not a mind reader. Maybe the struts leak simply because they are old?

Which struts are dependable?

I still need to know what struts are the most dependable. I read somewhere that someone raced 1st generation Sephias on the dirt road or one of those rally races, wondering what type of struts they used. Thanks...if you can, maybe you can answer my techometer question too. Go to interior and exterior section.
