KW Variant 1 -Sporty Handling with factory pre-set damping

The ideal system for customers wishing to rely on the experience of our engineers to set the damper setting, yet determine their own degree of lowering. In extensive driving tests our engineers have set the dampers for the best balance between sporty driving, comfort and safety. The user is then free to decide the best height setting for their use and preference.

[ ] Optimally pre-set
[ ] Sporty harmonious damping technology
[ ] Individually height-adjustable
[ ] Lowering range approved by the German Technical Control Board (TÜV)
[ ] Fully finished complete solutions
[ ] High-quality component parts for long durability
[ ] Front and rear height adjustable by threaded shock bodies

Lowering
Front: 1.2" to 2.3"
Rear: 1.2" to 2.3">;/p>

KW Variant 2 - Sport Handling with adjustable rebound damping

This system intended for the experienced driver who does not only wish to determine the individual lowering of his vehicle, but also wishes to carry out setup adjustments. The adjustable rebound damper allows adjusting the pitch and roll behaviour of the vehicle and therefore the driving pleasure can be adapted to the own requirements.

[ ] Damping technology with individually adjustable rebound
[ ] Individually height adjustable
[ ] Adjustment parameters approved by the German Technical Control Board (TÜV)
[ ] Fully finished complete solution
[ ] High-quality components for long durability
[ ] Comprehensive documentation for easy use

Lowering
Front: 1.2" to 2.3"
Rear: 1.2" to 2.3"

KW Variant 3 - Two-way adjustable track technology for the Street

State-of-the-art technology from motor sports for more performance on the road. The separate and independently adjustable rebound- and compression damping allows for an individual suspension setup for different uses and preferences. The unique patented system with its two-stage valves allows a rebound damping adjustment (comfort) and a compression adjustment (driving dynamics) in the low-speed range while the high-speed range which controls the driving safety, is fixed.

[ ] Damping technology with individually adjustable rebound- and compression technology
[ ] Individually height adjustable
[ ] Adjustment parameters approved by the German Technical Control Board (TÜV)
[ ] High-quality components for long durability
[ ] Infinitely variable rebound damping adjustment
[ ] 14-way adjustable compression damping
[ ] Unique, individually working damping force adjustment
[ ] Comprehensive documentation for easy use

Lowering
Front: 1.2" to 2.3"
Rear: 1.2" to 2.3"

Compression- and rebound adjustment

As far it is vehicle-specifically possible, the rebound damping is adjusted by a spindle at the end of the piston rod. Mainly, the traction phase (rebound) controls car body vibrations and also influences handling and comfort in the low-speed damping range. By using the traction phase adjustment, the vehicle can be adapted to the requirements of the driver. Moreover the driving behavior can be regulated from comfortably rolling to sporty and tense with improved road holding characteristics.

The compression phase adjustment is carried out at the lower end of the shock absorber via our patented multi-purpose valve. The large number of pre-set parameters of this valve allows for a wide range of adjustment for individual use. The unique low-speed compression adjustment significantly distinguishes this technology from any other. In this compression range, the driving behavior of the vehicle is drastically influenced. An increase of the damping power supports the vehicle already during compression and therefore avoids rolling and pitching. The directional stability is significantly improved.

NOTE:

Lowering the ride height will add negative camber to the rear. For best results, you should add adjustable rear control arms to correct the rear camber after lowering your car. If you choose not to correct the rear camber, your rear tires will wear unevenly. Install the rear adjustable control arms and have the alignment corrected.
