Fuel-efficient green cars such as your space-efficient Kia Rio were intended to be maintained in top condition so they can continue showing good levels of economy. By making it possible for your engine to consume gas more efficiently, performance parts raise power ratings while lowering excess fuel wastage. Car or truck enthusiasts who thrill over optimized vehicles recognize that nothing is more important than having the highest quality aftermarket parts for your vehicle. Your car's Kia Rio Struts function as dampeners just like shock absorbers, but struts also act as structural support for the vehicle's suspension. Ordinary MacPherson type Struts turn laterally with the front wheels, which differ from the Chapman variety used for the rear axle. One of the vital features of the suspension system is your vehicle's Struts, which are shock absorbers inside of coiled springs. In the event that your Struts wear out, it will usually have an adverse effect on the car's handling, tires and brakes. Struts are quite reliable but the interior shock absorbing part can wear out, necessitating removing the whole strut.


They are available for the following Kia Rio years: 2015, 2014, 2013, 2012, 2011, 2010, 2009, 2008, 2007, 2006, 2005, 2004, 2003, 2002, 2001, 15, 14, 13, 12, 11, 10, 09, 08, 07, 06, 05, 04, 03, 02, 01. This part is also sometimes called Kia Rio Shock. We stock struts parts for most Kia models including Sedona, Spectra, Sportage, Sorento, Optima, Amanti, Sephia, Forte, Soul, Spectra5, Rondo, Forte Koup, Rio5 and Magentis.

We stock these Struts brands for the Kia Rio: Monroe, KYB and Genuine.

Research on Struts for Kia Rio

Shock absorbers and struts are both components in a vehicle's suspension system. This system connects the vehicle to its wheels and allows movement between the two. The two-fold purpose of a suspension system is to improve road handling abilities and braking for safety and driving pleasure, and to keep the driver and passengers in the highest relative comfort possible. Vehicles either have struts or shocks at each wheel but never both on the same wheel. Vehicle can have struts in the front and shocks in the rear. The Kia Rio has this suspension configuration and if you think you need a Kia Rio strut replacement, here is some information, which will help you determine your best course of action.

What is the Difference between a Strut and a Shock?

A strut is a structural part of the suspension system. Like a shock absorber, a strut dampens the movement of the springs in a vehicle, stopping the oscillation and bounce that occurs when braking or accelerating. If the car is moving and you want to stop it, the forward motion of the car will want to keep on going. When you apply the front brakes, the front struts are keeping the car from bouncing to the ground and grinding the front end of the car into the pavement. A shock absorber is a component with a hydraulic pressurized system that allows fluid to be compressed and expanded, thereby slowing the effects of forward movement, pitch and gravity. Struts are considered to be a complete suspension system and are encased by a complicated coil spring mechanism, and are designed to absorb the shock from these coil springs. Shocks and struts are not inter-changeable.

Testing Your Kia Rio Struts

The first test to do when there are concerns about the condition of your struts is to bounce a corner of the vehicle up and down with your body weight. Do this over each wheel and watch to see if it bounces more than once. It should come right back up and stop after that first bounce. If it continues to bounce, then the shock or strut in that corner has deteriorated or broken. A visual inspection for hydraulic fluid leaks is recommended for shocks.

Kia Rio Strut Replacement

Whether you decide to replace your Kia Rio struts or upgrade your suspension systems altogether, remember to replace all struts or shocks in pairs. Be sure to replace both of the front struts or both of the rear shocks at the same time. The average in-service cost for a Kia Rio strut replacement for the front is between $350 and $502.
