KW coilovers in a Porsche 911 G Body

Out now: full in compression and rebound adjustable KW V3 shock absorbers for the legendary Porsche 911 (G-model series) available

The classic Porsche 911 models have been characterized for decades by a timeless styling coupled with unadulterated sportiness. Everywhere in the world, the “911” is known as a sports car icon and the “G-Series model” enjoys an unimagined popularity.

And the demand for an individual suspension kit is accordingly high. From now on, in compression and rebound damping independently adjustable KW Variant 3 shock absorbers are available as a suspension complete set in galvanized steel housings for all Porsche 911 G-series model (from model year 1974) built from 1973 – 1989 also known as “G-body”.

Our full in the damping forces adjustable V3 shockabsorbers give you the possibility to adjust your own personal setting.The great advantage besides a quantum leap in terms of driving dynamics is that the “KW suspension kit” features spindle housings and dampers, so time-consuming strut conversions with replacement cartridges is not necessary. Also, the standard torsion bar springs on the front and rear axle can still be used.

With the integrated compression and rebound adjustment click adjusters, it is easy to individually adjust our recommended damper basic setup.

For example, with its 16 click setting, the rebound allows to directly take influence on the handling characteristics as well as the driving comfort. With the low speed compression valve, which can be adjusted in twelve clicks, the driving behavior of the Porsche classic can be further increased if desired.

A higher compression level on the front axle allows an even more direct steering, and on the rear axle, higher compression damping forces counteract the oversteering. Due to the degressive valve assembly of the preconfigured high speed compression valve, the damping is positively influenced in the case of a sudden driving over street bumps. The wheels can immerse suddenly and this for example prevents the jumping over road irregularities. A classic Porsche 911 equipped with the adjustable KW shock absorbers receives a much more direct handling.

The G-Body also gets significiantly more grip on the rear axle without an increased oversteer. Even the remaining comfort is increased. “I drove a lot of classic Porsche”, says Carsten Prochaska, President of Porsche Club für den klassischen 911 Südwest e.V. “But the new V3 dampers in a G-Body is the perfect kit even on bumpy roads I got a relaxed ride. All four tyres are always connected with the road and the steering is always direct without the typical oversteer. It is perfect and I will upgrade my Porsche SC with the new shock absorbers.”

The recommended retail price for the German market incl. 19% VAT without shipping cost for the independently in rebound and compression forces adjustable KW V3 shock absorber kit is 2.699,00 Euro.
