When your Kia Optima was born, it was destined for a driver who values economical pricing in their automobile. Your Kia dealership isn't the only place to locate genuine or original equipment quality replacement parts for your Optima. Obviously, you bought your Optima because you knew that you wanted a great manufacturer's warranty and a brand you can trust both rolled up into one vehicle. The vehicle in your driveway symbolizes the best in class compared to all the other vehicles in today's marketplace.
Our vehicle's suspensions would not be where they are today without the invention of some key components. The MacPherson strut suspension was first used on front wheels, and made it so they could achieve the same amount of rotation using fewer parts. Still, your Kia Optima struts absorb impact the same way shock absorbers do. However, your specific model uses a strut to provide the spindle with 360-degrees of movement in the front, which eliminates the need for the front control arm to locate the wheel and provide a pivot for steering. If your Kia Optima has an independent rear suspension, you are going to have strut assemblies mounted to each rear wheel carrier rather than a shock and leaf spring on the axle shaft.
