possibly in the rear, but not in the front most likely.

look up everet here on the site, he does the upyourkia spacers, designed for the kia. that would be your best bet.

if you check at the top of our forum there is a stickied thread that has all sorts of info on how to lift your sportage and his spacers are in there.

Dave from Rocksportgear also sells a kit. Everyone I have sold a kit to has been satisfied and I haven't heard anything being a problem with Dave's.
If you want to make your own, that's fine with me, I'm not here to get rich, I just sell the spacers at a slight profit so that I can put more stuff on my sportage. Just remember, it costs money to build a better mouse trap.
Good Luck!
Everet

sure do make my own stuff, but that being said, if there is already a proven product out there that is at a great price already, like these spacers, why not just get them instead of trying to go through the hassle of doing them yourself?

and be happy knowing that your money did not just go to some corporation but to someone within our very own community
