How To – 2014+ Kia Soul Coil Over Install

I walk you through all the steps for installing a set of Coil Overs on a 2014+ Kia Soul. My friend Alex says it rides a bit rough, but he is very happy with how it sits and how much better it handles. (The front coil overs have upper pillow ball mounts).

It's good to see some people doing some modifications to the Kia Soul. I think it's the most underutilized hatchback out there that has a lot of potential performance. I'm sure you could put a bigger turbo charger or engine swap it or flare the wheels etc and get a little hot hatch out of the deal. Not to mention a used Kia Soul in very good shape goes for pretty cheap on the used market

Ian Fenzl says:

Does this do anything to the drive modes for the vehicle, or do they operate as normal? I love the wheels man, they look awesome and yeah that gap is waaaaay better.

William Broxterman says:

So if I have a soul like this but I want a more comfortable ride for long trips without changing the ride height what would you recommend

kyle peterson says:

how's the handling and ride improvement ?

Ian Brooks says:

Very informative…im guessing a 2011 soul isn't much different?

Adam Hancock says:

I also have a 2018 soul, what brand is the coilover kit you used? What was the final lowered height of the car when done? Thanks for the vid, any info is appreciated.
