KW automotive (KW) has introduced the KW V3 Classic coilover kit for Mercedes-Benz SEC (C126), which can be lowered from 20 to 45 millimeters. The coilover kit will work exclusively for the Mercedes-Benz 380 SEC, the Mercedes-Benz 500 SEC, and the Facelift models Mercedes-Benz 420 SEC, Mercedes Benz 520 SEC, and Mercedes-Benz 560 SEC.
Like the Mercedes-Benz W201, the front axle of the doesn’t need to be modified when retrofitting the vehicle with a KW V3 Classic coilover kit and it can be legally lowered when installed. The height adjustment happens directly at the coilover springs.
“Some Mercedes enthusiasts might fear having to retrofit MacPherson struts, but we can give the all-clear,” KW Classic expert, Sascha Daucher of the KW Brand Management Team explains, “The only thing that needs to be retrofitted when having an eight-cylinder V-engine is the optional starting torque support (level compensation) at the rear axle. But these are unnecessary within our dampers with multi-valve technology.”
The coilover kit enables either tighter or smoother handling within 16 clicks. With help of 12 clicks, the rebound can be adjusted for a more individual coilover adaption. The KW V3 Classic coilover kit gives Mercedes-Benz enthusiasts more leeway in adapting the damper characteristic to their personal wheel combination and enables seamless lowering.
