A good all-around kit without excessive room for adjustment.

KW V2 kits feature a 16-click rebound adjustable damper. Adjustments are made with a supplied adjustment knob from the top of the damper wherever possible. Raising the rebound damping rate will reduce the body motion of the vehicle and help to provide control and stability through corners and over the road, as well as allowing for minor changes to the overall handling balance. This is especially helpful for tuning to a specific wheel and tire package, allowing you to compensate for weight, tire pressure and traction differences. It also allows you to further fine tune the response and handling balance along with changes to sway bar settings and chassis set up, etc.
In short, raising the rebound rate will increase the firmness of the ride and reduce ride quality, with sharper handling and control. Lowering the rebound rate will provide a more comfortable, compliant ride at the expense of handling.
KW's INOX-line stainless steel bodies are extremely durable in all conditions, and offer unmatched corrosion protection with a trapezoidal design and composite adjustment collars, ensuring years of trouble-free service and adjustment. Additional parts include either composite or aluminum upper spring hat for corrosion resistance and quiet operation, a polyamide intermediate ring (spring separator) again for quiet operation and proper spring locating, a high-quality bump stop with integrated dust cover, and premium chrome-silicone linear or progressive rate spring depending on application.
