KW V2 and V3 true coilover conversion kit

The basic front only kit consists of a custom upper spring perch, Swift springs, and Swift thrust sheets. Retail price is $299 add $120 for machined KW adjusters.

The complete kit will come with rear Swift springs, Swift thrust sheets, and a pair of rear height adjusters. Retail price is $672.

For those who wish not have to mess with machine work on the front lower spring adjusters, we also have a kit with machined adjusters included at $792.

The bottom photo is he front kit mounted on KW struts, one with the stock upper mount, and the other with Vorshlag camber plate.

***Slight machine shop work is required for the front lower spring perch, which can easily be done at a local mahine shop. Alternatively, you can purchase new machined KW adjusters from us as well.***

A wide variety of spring rates are available to choose from or we can make a recommendation for you.

Camber plates(Vorshlag) is optional but recommended if you are attending HPDE or track days. When adding camber plates to either kit, you are looking at an additional $439.

Will this have a significant impact on handling? Will it make the rear easier to adjust? Currectly I have to remove the LCA to be able to adjust the hieght collar.

Yes, and Yes!

You have a much broader range of spring rates to choose from for both the front and rear. In addition, the Swift springs are very high quality and light weight.

You do not need to remove the rear lower control arm to adjust the rear ride height anymore with this conversion unless you are going with an extrem drop where you don't see the top of the tire.

Not satisfied with the handling performance of your KW V-series coilovers. Convert your current V1, 2 or 3 to a true coilover system with Swift springs and rates of your choice.

Same price. You just can't go very high on spring rates is all.

Contemplating this or the AST 4100 SA with Swifts. If my overall cost is equal, which set up is better?

If you can get the KW V3 and the Swift spring conversion kit at the same price as the AST 4100 with Swift, go for the KW's.

Spring is just around the corner. Get your E82/9x ready for the track and convert your KW's to a true coilover kit with proper spring rates for street or track.

If I were to buy KWs with swift springs, would I have to pay the full price on the KWs and add on the swifts or is there a package price?

Just received this kit for my KW3 coils. Thank you Harold. One question. I see a few thrust sheets. Can you clarify where exactly are metal and plastic sheets are mounted?

Full price on the KW plus the conversion kit.

Or find KW with a street price and purchase the Swift spring conversion kit from us.

If you currently own a KW V-series coilover kit, this true coilver conversion kit with custom Swift springs will make a drastic improvment in not only handling or your car, but also ride quality.

Are the rear spring perches double the height of the stock KW V3 ones?
I find that the rear perches on my V3's even at max height is too low for me. (The wheels are always tucked even at the highest setting).

Is is possible to only purchase the rear perches so I can get the height I want?
(I'd like my KW V3's to be just a tad lower than stock height).

Yes, we sell those on their own. They are not twice as tall, but they are 1" taller. As the motion ratio should have it, 1" of adjustment at the spring location is nearly 2" at the wheel in ride height so you have plenty.
