KW V3 coilover kit
Unlimited individuality for performance & comfort. Damper force adjustment separately for rebound and compression.
As with every KW coilover kit, our chassis engineers also develop a sporty, harmonious basic setup for the vehicle-specific applications of the KW V3. In addition to tests on our KW 7-post vehicle dynamics test bench, we complete extensive test drives on country roads, the motorway and even on the Nürburgring Nordschleife, test kilometer after test kilometer, in order to guarantee you the perfect suspension setup. For years, the KW V3, which is one of the top aftermarket products worldwide, has been the reference for coilovers. With its damper characteristics, high-quality workmanship and excellent durability, it convinces demanding sports car drivers, tuners, large and small series manufacturers such as Alpina, MTM, Manthey, Oettinger and many other well-known companies in the international automotive industry.
Cutting- edge technology from motorsport
With the KW V3 you get much more than a sporty lowering and excellent handling on all roads. It is based on our many years of experience as a chassis manufacturer and supplier in international motorsport, such as in the touring car series ADAC GT Masters, FIA GT1, FIA GT3, International GT Open, WTC, VLN and also in the legendary ADAC Zurich 24-hour race at the Nürburgring.
Similar to our racing coilovers from the KW Competition program, the rebound and compression stages can be adjusted independently of each other on the KW V3. This individual tuning option is valued by refiners, sports car manufacturers, tuners and discerning drivers worldwide.
The perfect chassis setup for significantly more driving dynamics
If you have already carried out the first performance modifications on your sporty road vehicle, it is easy with the KW V3 to take these into account in the damper adjustment. The patented KW valve technology for the separate adjustment of the rebound and compression stage allows you to individually adjust the vehicle-specific basic adjustment from KW. For example, the KW bottom valve, which can be adjusted in twelve clicks in the low-speed compression range, gives you the freedom to even consider the tire characteristics of your high- and ultra-high-performance road tires when setting up the suspension.
Thanks to the patented compression adjustment at the lower end of the piston of the stainless steel housing, you don’t even need any tools. The adjustable compression stage with its twelve precise clicks allows you to influence body roll and body roll without having to change the rebound stage damping that is optimally suited to the spring rate.
With the individually adjustable rebound stage of the KW V3, you can directly influence the handling and comfort through the exact click adjustment. Depending on the vehicle type, the rebound valves of the KW twin-tube shock absorbers are adjusted at the upper end of the piston rod using an integrated adjustment wheel or the slip-on adjustment wheel included in the scope of delivery.
By increasing the tractive force using the adjusting wheel, body movements on the body are reduced. As a result, your car drives more accurately and you have even more stability when cornering at higher speeds. For example, if you switch from the wheel/tire combinations approved by your car manufacturer to larger rims, you can use the KW V3 to perfectly match the driving behavior of your car and your new alloy wheels.
High-quality, individual and durable
The KW V3 is already subjected to extensive quality tests during production and every single damper is checked. This is the only way we can meet our claim of guaranteeing a guarantee of up to five years when a KW coilover kit V3 is installed by a KW specialist retail partner. Due to the filigree processing and the use of high-quality components, the KW coilover struts made of stainless steel, for example, are 100 percent rust-free and have an unlimited service life.
As a result, the functioning of the stepless lowering via the dirt-resistant KW trapezoidal thread and the KW polyamide ring nut is not impaired even after years. With the individual lowering with its stepless adjustment range, you can also visually emphasize the sportiness of your vehicle. A feature that is very popular in the performance-oriented tuning scene.

force adjustment Setup: The individually adjustable rebound and compression damping of the KW V3
The KW V3 is the ideal accessory for performance-oriented drivers and tuning enthusiasts who place great demands on their vehicles for sportiness. The dampers, which can be adjusted separately in rebound and compression stages, allow extensive damper tuning with their well thought-out click adjustment. So it is easy to directly influence the steering behavior, the directional stability, the tire grip and handling characteristics for safe controllability in the limit area.
