This kit is for the Sorento and the Santa Fe with the factory lift – to tell which you have simply confirm your ground clearance. There are 2 sizes, 176mm/6.9″ which is the lower of the two options (no factory lift) and the taller 206mm/8.2” (factory lift).

***The 305030 kit has been designed specifically for the adventurous Santa Fe and the Sorento ~ this kit does include the rear shock shaft extension, you can order part #305005 separately if you already have the 305028 kit***
We have been selling this kit to Kia & Hyundai dealers around the world since it was released, yes this kit first became available when these trucks were new on the lot. Like all of our parts, this kit is designed to work WITH the stock parts that came on your vehicle, no need to modify any parts, we include everything you need to create the do anything Santa Fe or Sorento….
We have been doing this for a long time (we built our first unibody lift in 2005) and while we would LOVE to make it an even taller kit, we tried that already ~ our original design was a 2.5″ kit and it was just a little too much – we didn’t like the angles and how it drove, while some people would be fine with it, we design every part we make to keep your vehicle driving and operating like stock; and do our best to make sure parts do not wear out any faster than they would without our kit installed.
This kit will increase your front ground clearance and keep that air dam and bumper out of the mud or sand on those trips to the cabin or the beach, and yes, when you add a size or two *taller* tire you will get 2.0 -3.0″ MORE ground clearance.
This kit has been tested with full throttle, wheels sliding and basically…well doing things you should never do to a new vehicle…we DO NOT recommend beating on your vehicle, you will break parts :-}
This is a straightforward install, yes we do include some very important simple install tricks in the instructions – you just need to make sure to read the instructions, they are not campfire starter!
There is NO cutting or welding or permanent modifications needed.
This lift kit allows you to fit much more aggressive tires and wheels allowing your Santa Fe/Sorento to take the family and all your toys to where they need to go!
***ALWAYS test fit wheels and tires AFTER lift install***
We have fit up to 265/60R18 tires on aftermarket wheels….make sure to send us pics so we can post them up and let people know what your choice was!
A GENERIC no vehicle specific Note about tire sizes: Every wheel and tire company seems to use a different measuring tape, one companies 265/60R18 will be 30.5 inches tall and another may be 31.5″ tall yet they have the same size on the sidewall – we can’t possibly test ALL combinations of wheels and tires so please install the kit before ordering tires or use an exact combination you have seen fit before!
