KW 15220042 V2 Coilover Kit MINI Cooper Hardtop and Convertible
KW 15220042 Variant 2 Coilovers are KW's mid level coilover kit which comes with a pedigree from one of the best names in the business. The V2 coilovers are a step above the V1s as the rebound damping features a 16 position adjustment possible with an included tool. This allows the comfort level to be adjusted to the drivers preference.The KW Variant 2 Coilovers are height adjustable so you can set the ride height of your car to the optimal looks or tune the suspension for the perfect lap time.
This kit uses progressive rate front 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.
This kit uses linear rate rear springs which provide consistent feedback and control during cornering.
KW 15220042 V2 Coilover Vehicle Fitment:
KW V2 Coilover Manufacturing: KW V2 coilovers are German made with ISO 9001 Certification and TUV approval. KW V2 front strut housings are made from stainless steel for corrosion resistance. The KW Stainless Steel housings feature dirt-resistant trapezoidal shaped threads which give a high load tolerance. KW rear housings are coated for corrosion resistance. KW V2's feature durable threaded height adjustment collars made of a composite polyamide material with stainless steel inserts. KW 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 steel of high strength chrome-silicon (CrSi) and chrome-silicon-vanadium (CrSiV) alloys using a cold coiling process. After coiling, KW 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: Professional installation recommended. A suspension alignment will be needed after installation.
