From the beginning Kia has been recognized as a vehicle maker that puts passenger protection and performance first. Better handling is easier with optional parts designed to improve the fuel system as well as steering components. You selected your high-performance car for its awesome power and performance, keep up your decision and buy the best replacement parts. One of the most vital features of your suspension system is your Kia Optima Struts, which are essentially shock absorbers inside of coil springs. Struts are very tough but the interior coil component can wear out, thus requiring replacement of the entire component. Standard MacPherson type Struts move side to side with the forward wheels, unlike the Chapman variety employed with the back axle. Struts consolidate the role of a damper and sideways support; this removes any necessity for an upper suspension arm. Since the Struts have so much effect of the car's handling, they are considered to be critical safety features. Whether a part big or small, maintaining your car or truck with superior parts should pay off, time after time.


They are available for the following Kia Optima years: 2010, 2009, 2008, 2007, 2006, 2005, 2004, 2003, 2002, 2001, 10, 09, 08, 07, 06, 05, 04, 03, 02, 01. This part is also sometimes called Kia Optima Shock. We stock struts parts for most Kia models including Sedona, Spectra, Sportage, Sorento, Rio, Amanti, Sephia, Forte, Spectra5, Soul, Rondo, Forte Koup, Rio5 and Magentis.

We stock these Struts brands for the Kia Optima: Monroe and KYB.

Research on Struts for Kia Optima

When you drive your Kia Optima and hardly notice the bumps and potholes, it means that the Kia Optima struts and the suspension system are working perfectly. However, if you get bounced around, even if you drive over smooth surfaces, there is a problem with the suspension system, namely the struts and you should get them inspected by a mechanic immediately. This is because your Kia Optima struts ensure the wheels always stay in contact with the road so that you have optimal control over your vehicle. Generally, you should be looking to replace Kia Optima struts every 50,000 miles. However, if you tend to be a rough driver, drive in high traffic roads or regularly go over potholes and bumps, you should replace the struts earlier. Otherwise, you will have to contend with the following symptoms:

Kia Optima Struts Are Leaking

If you find fluid or patches on the ground, under your vehicle, it is a sign that the 2007 Kia Optima struts are leaking out fluid. This happens when struts wear out, and if you continue driving around with worn out struts, it could wreak havoc with the other components of your vehicle's suspension system. It also could affect engine components. Hence, if you think the struts are leaking, get a mechanic to inspect them. If they are worn out, replace them without hesitation.

Kia Optima Brakes Are Taking Time to Engage

If you find that the brakes are taking longer than usual to engage, get a mechanic to inspect your 2012 Kia Optima front struts. If your brakes take too long to engage, it is a dangerous situation to be in. If you have to stop your vehicle suddenly, you will not be able to do so and this could result in an accident. Hence, if you find that the brakes are taking longer than usual to engage, do not wait. Ask your mechanic to inspect the struts and if they are worn out, replace them right away.

Kia Optima Makes Strange and Loud Noises When You Apply the Brakes

If you hear loud noises when you engage the brakes, it is a sign that the 2013 Kia Optima front struts have worn out. This can compromise your safety when you are driving, especially if you are driving at highway speeds. So do not wait to get the worn out struts replaced.

Kia Optima Rear Fender is Lifting When Going Over Bumps

It can be very frightening to see your rear fender lifting and the tires momentarily losing contact with the driving surface. This can make it difficult for you to control your Optima. Rear fender lifting is a sign of worn out struts and you should not think twice about going in for a Kia Optima strut replacement.

Cost of Replacing Kia Optima Struts

On an average, the cost of replacing Kia Optima front struts will cost you about $411 to $537. Labor will cost anywhere from $193 to $245 while parts will cost another $218 to $292. These prices are excluding taxes and fees. You can find the best quality Kia Optima struts at PartsGeek. The exclusive online auto parts store has low overheads and passes on the benefits to customers. Hence, you will always pay competitive prices when you purchase a replacement for your Optima.
