KW Coilover spring kits
The KW coilover spring kit is used for lowering the vehicle in combination with the serial dampers, even when electronic damper control is installed. This lowering solution from KW optimises the dynamic performance and the steering behaviour without the electronic damper control deactivated. For this solution vehicle specific adjustable spring seats with adjusted KW lowering springs and the matching elastomer as well as the dust cover system will be used. This complete conversion allows an individual adjustable lowering solution.

KW HLS (Hydraulic Lift System)
Helping lowered vehicles to avoid road clearance difficulties
The HLS provides additional road clearance for lowered vehicles. When expanded, a range of up to 45 mm of lift is produced, thereby helping sport cars avoid road clearance difficulties such as speed bumps, road construction, etc. KW HLS is available as vehicle specific solution or individual conversion kit depending on the car model.
HLS is available in two different versions: HLS 2 which is fitted to the front axle and HLS 4 which can be attached to the front and rear axle and allows lifting the entire vehicle. The hydraulic cylinder unit is located on the coilover body between spring perch and spring. The advantage of a hydraulic system is that there is no compression (motion) of the extended cylinder unit (resulting in no unwanted additional suspension movement) while driving.
Allows cars with low ground clearance to clear obstacles more easily
Available as complete kit including KW coilover kit or as conversion kit
Can be activated from inside the vehicle via a LED position control switch or
by an optional remote, thereby eliminating any need for interior wiring.
Can be activated while driving (up to 80 km/h)
Fast lifting – maximum lift occurs within 4-5 seconds when using HLS 2
High-quality cylinder unit with durable aluminium construction
Sealed unit for corrosion and dirt resistance
Depending on the car type and model, KW HLS is either available as a vehicle-specific solution or as a conversion kit for KW or OEM coilover kits existing of springs, adaptions, hydraulic cylinder and control unit.
KW DDC coilover kits
With electronic damping control
With the new Dynamic Damping Control, DDC, KW has designed a new coilover suspension, which uses the original 3-way button to adjust the damping. KW combines the individual height adjustability of the coilover suspension with the adaptive OEM damping control.
The driver can choose between 3 modes: “Comfort” for bad road conditions or just a relax ride, “Normal” for sporty daily use as the best compromise between performance and ride comfort or “Sport” for best handling and response.
There is no additional assembly effort.
The kit retains all advantages of a typical KW coilover kit, means:
The lowering can be adjusted in between the TÜV certificated adjusting range. The stainless steel technology “inox-line” guarantees that all parts remain movable, even under heavy use and salty winter time.
The new dynamic damping system, DDC, is available as a complete plug and play solution for the VW Golf MK VI, Passat 3C and the Scirocco, equipped with OE damping control.
KW clubsport – Performance for racetrack & road
KW Clubsport was developed for customers, who demand a better handling car when participating in track day events, but also require an offi cial road approval to use their car every day. The setup was specifi cally designed for the Nordschleife using track day tyres. By using the optional available adjustable top mounts, the suspension geometry can be adjusted to the requirements of tires and the intended use. The mentioned adjustment options combined with the independently adjustable rebound and compression damping technology allow individual setup adjustments according to the vehicle load, tyre characteristics and different track conditions. KW Clubsport meets every demand regarding a coilover for the usage on the road and the race track.
KW Clubsport suspension kits are independently adjustable in compression and rebound forces and include high performance racing springs. Racing top mounts are optionally available for further performance. KW Clubsport guarantees excellent handling, best performance, highest agility and fantastic lap times.

KW street comfort
Your sport suspension kit is too hard for you? Do you want a sportive,dynamic suspension with remaining comfort? With street comfort suspension KW offers you the solution, you can create that sportive look while keeping as much comfort as possible. Long trips on the highway will be a pleasure; fun can be had on county roads.
KW street comfort – The most individual sport suspension with maximum comfort
With the individual height adjustable KW street comfort coilover kit a lowering of 10-40 mm can be realised, depending on the vehicle. This way the customer has the flexibility to improve the look, with consideration of bigger wheels and tyres. At the same time the lowering has a positive effect on the driving dynamics and road contact. With discreet but effective lowering more spring travel will be left to combine a comfortable spring with harmonic damper, this way the best driving comfort is guaranteed. With this product KW offers the perfect compromise of driving dynamic and driving comfort.
