“Fichtenberg (Germany) May 28th, 2015 – No matter if it’s a Convertible or Coupé, the current Jaguar F-Type (QQ6) with its classic design brings back memories of the legendary Jaguar models. For the F-Type, F-Type S and F-Type R, the suspension manufacturer known as KW, was one of the first in the aftermarket, and now has developed a coilover suspension with independent compression and rebound damping adjustment. The KW Variant 3 coilover suspension is made of stainless steel, increases driving dynamics, and allows for continuously adjustable lowering of up to 35 mm. Alternatively, KW also offers a height-adjustable spring kit. Unlike conventional lowering springs, this KW spring kit allows you to individually lower the British sports car similar to a coilover kit.
Jaguar fans wanting to further increase the driving dynamics of their F-Type, up to 550 hp strong, will find the KW Variant 3 coilovers the ideal performance suspension for everyday life. It is possible to adapt the driving dynamics of the Jaguar F-Type according to your personal preferences. For example, to modify the handling when changing wheel & tire dimensions, the rebound can be adjusted with 16 exact clicks. For the compression damping, the purple click wheel is integrated in the stainless steel strut or the rear axle damper housing. By changing the compression damping, a noticeable influence can be made to the body roll and the steering behavior is improved without changing the rebound damping which perfectly matches the spring rate. In addition, the KW coilover kit allows continuously adjustable lowering on the front axle of the Jaguar between 0 – 30 mm and 5 – 35 mm at the rear axle.
Compared to conventional springs, the height-adjustable KW spring kit allow a continuous adjustable lowering, like a coilover kit, which is not possible with regular lowering springs. So it is easy with the KW height-adjustable spring kit to set an individual lowering when installing. “During the installation of 30mm lowering springs on the front axle of the F-Type we found that afterwards there was no more suspension travel available, and the suspension only absorbed via the bump stops.
