cobra KW Suspension is manufactured to the highest standards of German automotive engineering. During the manufacturing of KW Coilover suspensions, the highest quality materials are used to produce individual suspension solutions that enable customers to adjust vehicle height according to their wishes and needs. Within the TÜV-tested adjustment parameters, this can be easily achieved using the purple-colored aluminium spring collars by adjusting the position of the yellow coated springs upwards or downwards via a specially designed exterior thread. In doing so, the vehicle height can be precisely adjusted, and customers receive the exact result they want and/or need. The stainless steel strut housings are fitted for the specific vehicle type, and are available in three different damping technologies. With this variety, KW coilover suspension kits in Variants 1, 2 and 3 can meet the exact requirements of every customer.

KW Suspension made the changeover of its complete production of its Coilovers to the new reference standard 'Inox Line' in stainless steel. The first kits rolled out of assembly in late 2000, and it was clear that this was truly a milestone event. Even with the known corrosion resistance characteristics of the new housings, not even the experts could have predicted the extreme results that would come of the harsh testing to come.
