KW coilover kit for Audi A4
After the Audi A4 has been launched on the market, the sedan and station wagon have become one of the most successful models of Audi in the past years. Also for the latest Audi A4 (B8), KW automotive has already developed a wide range of coilovers in high quality stainless steel finish. With KW coilovers Variant 1, Variant 2 and Variant 3 it is possible to lower the Audi A4 continuously within the German TÜV-tested adjustment range by up to 55 mm.
Alternatively, also the comfort-oriented KW Street Comfort coilover kit is available for the sedan and station wagon. Depending on the version, the stainless steel KW coilovers can also be adjusted individually in damper setup.
Our KW coilover kit Variant 3 is one of the top aftermarket products worldwide and it is the reference for coilovers. With its patented valve technology for a separate compression and rebound adjustment, it convinces demanding sports car drivers, tuner, as well as large- and small-series manufacturer such as Alpina, MTM, Manthey, Oettinger and a lot of other well-known companies. The KW coilover kit Variant 3+ is also available for the latest Audi A4. “For the new version of our KW coilovers Variant 3, we have integrated the adjustment wheel to setup the compression damping into the bottom of the housing,” explains Johannes Wacker, KW Product Manager. “To adjust the rebound of the front axle damper, the adjustment wheel only has to be plugged into the piston rod top.” So directly from the engine compartment, the handling and comfort of the Audi sedan can significantly be influent by the rebound adjustment in 16 precise clicks. “If for example someone changes the wheel / tire combination which is approved by Audi against a bigger set of wheels, this can be considered with the rebound adjustment”, continues KW Product Manager Johannes Wacker. Anyone who drives his car demanding, will notice this immediately, just like that the KW coilover kit Variant 3 ensures an increase of steering precision and track stability even in its basic setup. By the separately adjustable compression damping with its sophisticated twelve-step adjustment, the driver is able to take influence on potential rolling motions of the A4 body, without having to change the spring rate which optimally matches the rebound damping. While the KW coilovers Variant 2 can be adjusted in rebound, this is not possible at the Variant 1 kits.
Continuous lowering and comfort suspension kit KW Street Comfort
The continuous lowering is made on all KW coilovers via the dirt-resistant trapezoid thread, directly on the stainless steel strut. At the front, the A4 sedan can be lowered within the German TÜV tested adjustment range of 25 to 55 mm. At the rear, the vehicle height adjustment is made directly with the rear-axle height adjustment in the range of 25 to 50 mm. “For those who uses their Audi A4 primarily for long-distance trips and extended highway trips, we recommend our KW Street Comfort suspensions,” says KW Product Manager Johannes Wacker. Compared to the KW coilovers Variant 1, Variant 2 and Variant 3, the Street Comfort coilovers have a comfort-oriented suspension setup, developed by KW. The Street Comfort coilovers have an adjustable rebound damping adjustment that allows to adjust the damping characteristics even more comfortable or tighter. The adjustment range of the continuous lowering is between 20 and 45 mm.
