Default 2015-2017 K900 lowering springs by Storm

I saw these lowering springs and it may be a game changer thatíll provide a oem look without sacrificing the ride but improving it...

https://koreanautoimports.com/kia-k900-storm-lowering-springs-4pc-set/

Has anyone tried these and to add with the stance and rolling reported handling of the K900? Theyíre the only ones Iíve seen and it appears the company is from Korea? If I get my K900 Iím interested in these.

Anyone think these type of springs will be fine for the cars handling? If it flattens out the ride a bit in the corners, sharpen the steering and only marginally affect the ride quality would you try them?

Anyone of you K900 gurus/owners have any feedback???

I wouldn't. The nose would scrape on every minor incline.

Vvet, It’s only lowers 1.5" front & 1.2" rear. You think that’ll be too low? Just wanna control the body roll y’all complain about... I test drove a 15’ K900 With 60k miles yesterday in Baton Rouge And it wallowed In the curves a lot to me but on the highway it was compliant and quiet comfortable.

Didn’t buy it because the dash was delaminating BAD, seats tattered and worn, cracked headlight cover and if need of a paint restoration. AND after being told the car was in very good condition! And it was priced as if it was!!! It was 2hr drive from my home but I did fall in love with the future of finding the right car in the right condition!!!! At least I caught I found an 14’ Lexus ES350 with 40k miles that my Mother was looking for and I’ll bring her back on Tuesday to purchase if it pass the inspection from Lexus on Monday!

Anyway guys have a great night!!!!

Buy a model year 2019 or 2020 and you won't have to add anything.

. Nah don’t wanna spend $40k. I’ll rather spend $15-18k for a nice 15’..... and enhance it a bit

You can try wider tires and that may help a little bit, but lower now days is not for me. I'm in my mid 50's with more aches and pain.
totally agree with that!!! I have a lowered sports car now and not remotely trying to go for the stance or low rider look.... just don’t want the wallowing/rolling in the corners/curves.

I’m sure I’ll enjoy it once I find the right one......
