Hi All!



My Kia Rio Crdi flys!!! Sorry just needed to get that off my chest!



But it lacks a bit in the bends and braking, bit to much body roll
, i have been told that this problem is down to the setup on the 2005 and early 2006 kia rios, possibly down to soft springs!



I have had the dampers etc checked and all is ok.



I want to correct this but do i put in later stock springs or go for a 30mm lower kit with stiffer springs, theres a apex set on ebay for approx £100?

Has anyone tried lowering springs on there rio? Did it improve things?



Cheers for you help on this one, i do not want to throw away £100 on something that makes my car worse than before!!

They springs are for the earlier Rio. Part N# 310-3000. The one that looks like an estate car.
The Apex ones you need are part N# 310-3200. I would go for the Eibach ones IMHO a bit dearer. £177. on Ebay. Part N# E10-46-011-01-22. Item N# 120484599764
