The HLS provides additional road clearance for lowered vehicles. When expanded, a range of up to 45 mm of lift is produced, thereby helping sport cars avoid road clearance difficulties such as speed bumps, road construction, etc. KW HLS is available as vehicle specific solution or individual conversion kit depending on the car model.
HLS is available in two different versions: HLS2 which is fitted to the front axle and HLS4 which can be attached to the front and rear axle and allows lifting the entire vehicle. The hydraulic cylinder unit is located on the coilover body between spring perch and spring. The advantage of a hydraulic system is that there is no compression (motion) of the extended cylinder unit (resulting in no unwanted additional suspension movement) while driving.
- Allows cars with low ground clearance to clear obstacle more easily
- Can be activated from inside the vehicle via a LED position control switch or by an optional remote, thereby eliminating any need for interior wiring.
- Can be activated while driving (up to 80km/h)
- Fast lifting
maximum lift occurs within 4-5 seconds when using HLS2
- High-quality cylinder unit with durable aluminium construction
- Sealed unit for corrosion and dirt resistance
Depending on the car type and model KW HLS is available as a vehicle-specific solution or as a conversion kit for KW or OEM coilover kits existing of springs, adaptions, hydraulic cylinder and control unit.
Height adjustable on the front and rear axles (threaded strut housings)
Not for cars with electronic damping
Dampers are adjusted by easily operating adjustment wheels. Rebound is only adjustable if the top of the piston rod is accessible. This will depend on the vehicle construction.
