KW Update and Refurbishing Service for our S13 Drift Grip Project Car!

The piston rod is now ready to be installed in the shaft/body of the strut.

The top packing bushing is replaced with a new one.

The top packing also has a seal that is replaced with a new part.  The inside of the seal and bushing are greased before installation.

The bushing and packing are slid over the shock shaft.


  1. What’s always interesting is seeing how different KW’s valve design philosophy is compared to the Bilstein/Ohlins/Penske/etc deflective disc pistons… but obviously it works, and works well. Cool that they’re doing rebuilds in-country too, thank you for sharing all of this.
