KW Classic Suspension: State of the Art Technology for Classic Cars
Also for numerous antique cars and young classics, we offer the perfect suspension for every demand and we further expand our delivery program also for classic automobiles. So no lovers of classic automobiles have to be satisfied with the technology state of the early fifties, sixties, seventies or eighties. The KW classic suspensions have a technical component report and offer the possibility of a stepless lowering within an approved range. Depending on the application, the classic suspensions are available in different damper versions and depending on the car, we also use struts with forged steering knuckles which makes the processing or use of exchange struts no longer necessary.
Setup – more driving safety and performance
Specially for the needs of the classic suspensions, we have developed modern damper setups with modern setup methodology on our 7post rig and at driving tests on the road. All of our suspension applications provide more driving safety and performance without sacrificing ride comfort. Depending on the vehicle-specific application, coilover struts or damper housings are made of aluminium, steel or tempered stainless steel and combined with the optimal KW damper valve technology.
KW Classic suspensions for Porsche G-models
For years, the Porsche G-models are part of the most popular classics. Especially for these 911, we have developed suspension kits, that all feature modern damper technologies and are adapted to the latest knowledge. So no Porsche enthusiast has to be satisfied with the state of suspension technology from 1973. Furthermore, our suspensions for the G-models have forged wheel mounts on the front axle damper housings. This avoids the elaborate finding of parts which are often not available on the market.
Custom made productions for the highest demand
In addition to the series development, we offer drivers of exclusive classic cars and young classics the option to build an individual suspension kit according to the customers wishes in our KW special construction manufactory. We take into account all requirements, which can differ significantly in terms of driving height, ground clearance, wheel loads, spring travel, spring stiffness and damping, depending on the intended use on the road, at car rallies, participation at antique car rally or at historical motorsport events.
Because with KW, no driver of a classic car has to be satisfied with the state of the suspension technology from the time of his classic car or young classic. Depending on the vehicle-specific application, the coilover struts or damper housings made of aluminum, steel or tempered stainless steel are combined with the optimal KW damper valve technology (TVR-A, TVC-A and TVCLH-A). The adjustment is made on our KW 7post rig according to objective criteria for the different purposes of application. In a complex setup and adaption process, the respective target values are achieved without having to actually drive the precious vehicle. The final test drive can be kept to a minimum. If desired or required by the regulations, the suspension can also be converted into a nonadjustable damper variant after the evaluation and approval of the customer. A comprehensive documentation according to our QS processes and the specifications of the VdTÜV-leaflet (= German Association of Technical Inspection) permits an individual acceptance and entry into the vehicle papers.
Continuous Ride Height Adjustment
With KW HLS system that includes coilovers you can achieve maximum lowering within an approved lowering range that ensures a proper functioning suspension with adequate travel after your car is lowered. Even after years of use you can easily adjust the ride height thanks to the dirt resistant trapezoid thread and composite adjustment collar.
The benchmark for coilovers
As with all KW coilovers our engineers develop vehicle specific damper and spring specifications which undergo comprehensive testing on the Nürburgring Nordschleife and in our KW 7-post Driving Dynamic Test Center. With a KW HLS coilover kit the driving experience is more dynamic and direct.
