Many old cars more than 20 years ago, such as Porsche 930/964, BMW E24/E30 or Mercedes-Benz W201, have different shock absorber structures from today's models. There is a certain degree of difficulty. For this reason, the German KW shock absorber has launched a model called "Classic" shock absorber for these classic old cars, so that these old car owners can directly modify it and complete the plan to strengthen the chassis control.

Since these classic old cars mentioned above have complex steering bracket structures at the bottom of their front wheel shock absorbers, when replacing shock absorbers in the past, it was necessary to find a way to transplant the bracket structure to the modified shock absorbers. , Simply speaking, it is to retain the external structure of the original shock absorber, and only replace the internal damping cylinder. The original shock absorber itself is indeed designed to be a maintenance method that can replace the internal damping cylinder alone, but if you want to greatly improve the shock absorber The performance and heat resistance of the damper are limited by the diameter of the damping cylinder.
However, after the German KW shock absorber launched the Classic model, it can be seen from the product diagram that the KW Classic shock absorber retains many of the forged bearing columns at the bottom of the original front shock absorber, and the Y-steering The bracket structure makes it unnecessary for these models to be so troublesome when replacing the shock absorber of this type, and it can be installed on the car without any modification at all, and the thickness of the related structure is also thicker than the original one. Thicker, which means better rigidity to withstand more aggressive steering maneuvers. And these shock absorbers are introduced through KW's modern damping adjustment technology and shock absorber manufacturing engineering to meet the needs of the suspension structure of antique cars or classic cars, thereby providing higher driving safety and handling performance, and at the same time. Can take into account the ride comfort.
In fact, the shock absorbers of the KW Classic model are not limited to the BMW E30, including Porsche (G-models/964/993/944/968 models), BMW E24, Audi V8, Audi 80, Golf I , VW Beetle, Ford Mustang (1979 - 1993 models) and Lancia Delta Integrale (EVO) and other classic models, all have KW shock absorbers that can be straight up. As for the damping adjustment function, in addition to the Variant 3 introduced above, some models only have Variant 1/ Variant 2 product models to correspond to. The former has been developed according to each model, and only after a long and extensive road test is officially sold. For sale, such as the VW Golf MK1 model, the ride is more comfortable than the original model. Although the damping is soft and hard and cannot be adjusted, the damping coefficient that has been set at the factory can still provide users with more dynamic handling and modern riding stability.
As for the Variant 2, the rebound damping can be adjusted. This function can provide the owner with more control over the center of gravity of the car or a more stable ride comfort. The damping will be set at a moderate position at the factory to meet the shock absorption requirements of most classic cars when driving on the street.

KW Classic Suspensions vs. Porsche 911 Carrera
Many old Porsche owners may not be able to find a suitable modified shock absorber when arranging their car, because the lower seat of the shock absorber is also combined with the axle, and a specially developed one-piece lower seat is required to correspond. There are not many brands of modified shock absorbers. Fortunately, KW in Germany has noticed the demand in this regard, and has developed a series of Classic Suspensions especially for many old German cars, so that these old cars with more than 25 years can also have the opportunity. A more comprehensive ride experience brought by the use of the new-generation shock absorber damping system.

KW Classic Suspensions range of products
With the increasing trend of refurbishing old cars in the world, KW Germany also pays special attention to many old cars of more than 20 years, and may not find the problem of modifying shock absorbers to use, especially the special shock absorber structure design of old German cars, Therefore, the production line of Classic Suspensions is specially launched, so that many old cars can also have modern modified shock absorbers, especially old ones like the Porsche 911 Carrera. Since the lower seat of the shock absorber is also combined with the axle, it is necessary to Specially developed one-piece lower seats can be matched, and KW Classic Suspensions have special models available.
Porsche 911 F-Body & KW Classic V3
A good shock absorber factory will not only pursue the introduction of shock absorbers for popular modified cars, but will hope to meet the wishes of more classic car owners, and then launch available modified shock absorbers, just like the German KW The same goes for the dedicated classic V3 shocks for the Porsche 911 F-Body.
Since the front shock absorber of the Porsche 911 F-Body is equipped with a steering-specific link and suspension bracket, this KW Classic V3 also uses forged galvanized steel to create the same steering structure as the original one. It allows the installer to complete the installation without modification, and provides the most perfect suspension upgrade solution for the Porsche 911 F-Body. And because this set of KW Classic V3 shock absorber adopts the latest technology of damping valve and rubber buffer technology, with 16-stage rebound damping and 12-stage compression damping soft and hard adjustment function, it will make the Porsche 911 F-Body surpass the The original driving and riding experience is believed to meet the needs of these veteran players.
KW Classic Variant 3 Spindle Kit for all Porsche 911 F-Body including 911 (1964-1968), 911 L (1968), 911 T (1968-1969), 911 E (1969), 911 S (1967-1969) , 911 T 2.2 (1970 – 1971), 911 E 2.2 (1970 – 1971), 911 S 2.2 (1970 – 1971), 911 T 2.4 (1971 – 1973), 911 E 2.4 (1972 – 1973) and 911 S 2.4 ( 1972 – 1973), including Targa.
