The KW V1 coilover kit KW's entry level coilover kit which allows height adjustability and comes with a pedigree from one of the best names in the business. KW's engineers have developed a specific damper setup and spring rate which allows the Variant 1 coilover kits to increase the driving pleasure with an optimal balance of sportiness and practicality.

KW Variant 1 Springs:

The KW 10280029 kit uses progressive springs which gradually increase spring rate as the spring compresses. This increasing rate allows progressive springs to be soft over small road imperfections and transitions and stiffen up during hard braking and cornering. They are a great compromise between high performance when driving hard, while providing comfortable ride quality during normal driving.

KW V1 Coilover Manufacturing:

KW V1 coilovers are made in Germany, ISO 9001 Certified and TUV approved.

KW V1 coilovers feature front strut housings made from high quality stainless steel and are an investment for the entire life of the car. Stainless steel KW V1 coilovers are 100 percent corrosion resistant, and have an unlimited life. The KW Stainless Steel housings feature dirt-resistant trapezoidal shaped threads which give a high load tolerance. The rear housings are coated for corrosion resistance.

KW V1's feature durable threaded height adjustment collars made of a composite polyamide material with a stainless steel insert. The polyamide collars are resistant to damage and combined with stainless housings, make height adjustments easy even after years of use.

KW springs are produced using special oil tempered spring steels of high tensile strength chrome-silicon (CrSi) and chrome-silicon-vanadium (CrSiV) alloys using the cold coiling process. This provides reduced spring weight with high material strength, effectively reducing the unsprung weight of the vehicle and optimizing handling characteristics. After the cold coiling process, the springs are tempered, shot peened and preset to ensure consistent vehicle ride height and suspension function. Finally the springs are phosphated and powder coated to ensure a superior corrosion barrier for years of service.

KW Coilover Install:

Installation of KW V1 Coilovers typically takes 4-6 hours. Basic hand tools and a spring compressor are necessary for installation. Please observe all safety precautions and follow proper installation guidelines while working on your vehicle. Additional suspension components may be needed in some applications, depending upon the make, model, engine and chassis of the vehicle. We typically recommend setting coilovers for a half inch gap between the top of the tire and the top of the fender lip for a good compromise between looks, performance and comfort. The optimal ride height for performance may be different than the optimal ride height for comfort. The optimal ride height for looks is up to the owners preference. Achtuning recommends waiting 1 week after install for the suspension to "settle" before alignment.

KW Coilover Warranty:

KW provides a 2 year warranty to the original purchaser.


Lowering height may vary on vehicles optionally equipped with factory sport suspensions or different engine configurations.
