Another set of KW springs going into the dumpster!
We are converting yet another set of KW V3 with Swift springs, this time with the request of the owner to install helpers springs. No camber plates were requested as the car is strictly a daily driver for the time being. The additional negative camber needed to reduce understeer will come from the slight lowering of the car and M3 wishbones and proper selection of spring rates. We settled on 400F and 800R for this particular project.
With the installation of Swift springs and thrust sheets some of the noise that has plagued the KW V1, 2, 3 or even the CS may be a thing of the past.
As you can see the use of Swift springs make the front coilover over setup more compact and lighter by about 2 lbs.
