KW Develops Individual LoweringSprings for Jaguar F-Pace
The SUV segment is growing worldwide and now the traditional British brand, Jaguar, offers their take on a “Sport Utility Vehicle,” the F-Pace. As one of few suspension manufacturers to offer a suspension solution for the F-Pace, KW also offers suspension springs that are individually adjustable in lowering. Unlike regular lowering springs, the KW coilover springs enable precise height adjustability. The KW springs that are now also available for the attractive Jaguar F-Pace SUV allow a continuous lowering of 15 – 30 mm on both axles.
“Adjusting the level is similar to a coilover kit”, said KW Product Manager Johannes Wacker. “When installing our springs, the series components are replaced by our dust protection elements, bump stops and the KW springs with threaded sleeves.” The conversion can be carried out in every specialist workshop or even a tire shop.
The variable lowering has the great advantage that when changing the wheel / tire combination, the lowering can be adapted to the new rims in just a few steps. This would not be possible when conventional lowering springs are used. In combination with the adaptive series dampers in the F-Pace, a harmonious and direct driving behavior is realized by the KW coilover springs.
Even at extreme driving maneuvers and sudden load changes, the springs increase the agility of the Jaguar SUV with up to 380 hp, without compromising driving comfort. Please find more information at www.kwsuspensions.net.
