Hey everyone- I am thinking of buying and installing lowering springs in my '18 Stinger GT2 AWD. I am looking for honest feedback from people that actually have these installed - please help me make a decision. Here are the two factors for me:

1. Retain factory/OEM ride - very important. I just drive this thing to work and back, in traffic, on a highway. I live in MN and the roads are HORRIBLE. If you live in AZ or something, you don't know! :)
2. Eliminate the gap as much as possible. Really is why I would like to lower the car.

The Stinger can be soft sometimes, but generally I am ok with it in Sport mode. It's a GT car and I like to keep it this way.

SO - should I get STORM or ARK Performance GT-F springs?

The ARK springs with give you the mildest drop.

If you want something lower, so far everyone that has installed Eibach Pro kit has been very happy. https://www.kiastinger.org/threads/422-Kia-Stinger-Eibach-Lowering-Springs

Thanks for the reply MiBlugt! I am also considering Eibach Pro, but like you said, ARK is a bit milder, so I thought maybe a better ride. Actually the STORM springs seem to be even more mild - less than 1".

The ARK are the way to go in my opinion. It offers an even drop front and back (issue with eibachs and RWD Stingers) and does not sacrifice too much ride height, compared to other options in the market (important for daily drivers). Also they perform similar to the eibachs.

I'll take opinions, but anyone with any of these actually installed on their AWD Stinger?

Go with the Ark springs, considering you live in winter conditions I wouldn't go too low.

I'm AWD with Ark springs. I've had them on for nearly 3 months now and I daily drive my car. Ride is still fantastic and I would highly recommend them.

For those who own the Ark springs. Are you springs unevenly cut at their very tips? Especially the rear ones? like it's not a clean cut but a little jagged.

old thread but just installed the Ark GT F springs. look is good, car is a bit firmer but in comfort mode it's still more than fine. I've had several cars prior to this on H&R's, and while I never had problems or anything, the H&R's are just a bit too harsh for daily driving. The Ark springs noticeably improved the handling and body roll, while still keeping the ride closer to stock from a comfort perspective. good compromise!
