  • Not happy with KW v1

    Hi folks, happy new year and new suspen ?


    From the first time, I commented here that I'm very unhappy about my v1 KW inox
    Bought v1 for a RS2 and installed on my S2 avant with wrecking ball.

    I use too quite my car. Around 1.500kms at year; and only with 3 years the springs goes down and down. And must up the screws around 2 fingers to has the same distance like last years.??‍♂️

    Why that, last year (with 6 years with this KW) I decided desinstall the wrecking and the rear upped 2cm? (I think it's not normal, okay the wrecking is heavy like a iron bar, around 20 kilos or... But...)

    Now the rear suspension has the screws on top, but the distance between the wheels and the wings is only, ONLY 2 fingers.?
    And the front screws are quite talls, around in the middle of the dampers. And the distance between the two (wheel and wing) is 1cm only. Must readjust front suspension again ??‍♂️.

    So...
    New year, new suspension!?
    I'm tooooo tired with this ****.
    Yesterday run little bit harded on a mountain road, and the rebunds are to much and to big. You can't drive fast on this situation ? I hit my head on the sun roof ?

    Weeell...
    My options:
    - new stiffer springs for this KW V1
    - new KW V3
    - BC racing one? ?
    - H&R? - Bilstein? - Eibach?

    Ps. Excuse me for the lines but I had to tell it.

    Do you have poly bushes?

    Have they seized? Need to be dismantled and greased?

        ARB bushes can seize too.

          Seize?? Can't understand the meaning

          Ps. Arb bushes are too from powerflex. And are oiled too, with a silicone spray.
