Default KW Suspension


I am considering the KW suspension (not the Mopar repackaging of it), however, I cannot seem to find a place that sells it!


Does anyone have it installed? Know where to buy? Other suggestions?

Rolo,

Have you gotten any word back from them? I noticed that the current dealer link on KW's website doesn't work and I figured you sent them an email already so I hate to be redundant redundant. I see the UK site offers the V1's but do they make any others for us? What about price?

Oh, no, Alicha, I have not tried to contact them yet; I am waiting until after the holidays, for most places I have contacted so far were not available until Jan. 5th, and I hate doing something twice, doing something twice.

I also have to take some measurements yet to decide how far down I want to go.

Well I went ahead and emailed KW so I'll post up whatever reply I get from them (if and when). I don't really care to drop the car whatsoever. There are some steep grades around here like our driveway and it's close as it is. I'd like the adjustable coilovers mainly to stiffen it up a little (stiffer bound atleast) and to be able to lower JUST the back end approx 1/2"-3/4". I don't mind it up a little bit higher than the front especially since once there's a load in the back it'll even up but the difference now is just too damn much. I'll let you know what I get from KW Rolo. Thanks!

Alicha,
According to the KW guys at the block party, the MOPAR is not just a repackage it is a redesign of the spring rates and the dampeners.

Sounds good Alicha, thank you.

I do not care to lower it just to lower it, but the wheel gap on mine just HAS to go!

I like the rake and want to keep it, so lowering the whole thing is the only way to make that happen while keeping the same wheels. I, too, would like a stiffer ride. Too bad they didn't appear to make Variant 2's for the PT.

Re: Mopar
I wonder what the differences will be. Hopefully, they will actually release some information. However, having my whole suspension "as is, without warranty" is not going to happen. I also do not want Mopar blue.

Sebastian

I apologize for the late reply, we had a large server error that prevented
me from getting much of my email.

KW builds both our variant 1 and variant 2 systems for the PT in partnership
with Mopar Performance. Both of these systems are offered through Mopar as a
"Stage 2" and "Stage 3". Please contact your local Mopar dealer for pricing!

I guess that is the only way to get variant 2's. Damn, I really wanted the purple and yellow! :/

Thanks Ali.

Anyone know the price or part number of them? I can try to get a discount on them.
