How to adjust ride height & corner balance your car - KW Suspension DDC - Technik
Setting your ride height is just the start when you switch to coilovers.
The real beauty of using KW DDC coilovers for us was in being able to lower
the car and maintain the OEM corner balance. KW and other coilovers also
let you improve the corner balance or weight distribution of your car if
your car doesn't already have a good set up from the factory.
Technik and GTChannel show you how to set up the KW Suspension DDC using
our project BMW E92 M3. We changed our wheels and tires to a square set up
and in doing so raised the front ride height. This changed the handling
characteristics. By putting on the DDC coilovers we were able to adjust the
ride height and more importantly regain the stock corner weights despite
the taller front tires.
Robert Choo lends us his expertise and garage to do the adjustments.

ECS Tuning: BMW Coilover Installation
We install the ST Coilover System on our E92 BMW 335i, however, these
general steps can be used to install various brands of coilovers on a wide
variety of applications.
Lowering Springs vs Coilovers -- Presented by Andy's Auto Sport
1 (800) 419-1152
Andy's Auto Sport presents a video about the differences between lowering
springs, coilover sleeve kits, and complete coilover systems, with examples
of each for easy reference. Lowering springs, coilover sleeve kits, and
coilovers are all great ways to improve the looks and performance of your
vehicle, but be sure to buy exactly what you need depending on the type of
driving you will do. From stock replacement parts to high-performance
aftermarket accessories, Andy's Auto Sport has what you need to get the
looks and power your vehicle deserves.

KW DDC coilover plug&play and ECU
With the new Dynamic Damping Control, DDC, KW has designed a new coilover
suspension, which uses the original 3-way button to adjust the damping. KW
combines the individual height adjustability of the coilover suspension
with the adaptive OEM damping control.
The driver can choose between 3 modes: "Comfort" for bad road conditions or
just a relax ride, "Normal" for sporty daily use as the best compromise
between performance and ride comfort or "Sport" for best handling and

[W5] THE FIRST STAGE ON THE DOWN-LOW:
Webisode 5 in a series of 14 focuses on pushing the car into it's first
substantial power gain, by getting this TTS APR'd to stage 1. After
experiencing a sizable chunk of new power, we get into lowering the ride
height properly with a set of KW Variant 3's. This is the first time in the
USA that a mag-ride equipped Audi has been lowered utilizing KW's mag-ride
"override" hardware solution. It worked out beautifully!

KW Coilovers Variant 2 on a BMW E36 M3 | BMW suspension upgrade
http://www.autowerksofamerica.com/ KW Coilovers are becoming a more popular
option for BMW and other German car owners. The build quality is good and
the construction materials mean that you won't have to worry about rust.
They offer products both for street and racing applications.
We're performing a suspension upgrade on an 1997 BMW M3. KW offers four
coilover possibilities for this car.
Variant 1 allows you to change the ride height
Variant 2 allows you to change the ride height and the rebound damping
Variant 3 allows you to change the ride height and both the rebound and
the compression damping
The club sport package is more aggressive, but can also be used on the
street has an additional expansion reservoir. It also comes with adjustable
I selected variant 2 to give me some damping adjustability without having
to manage the complexity of the additional variable of compression damping.
Here's what's in the box.
The struts have the springs mounted already, you can see the shocks here
and the springs were packed well with protective foam that I've already
The toolbox comes with instructions, a spanner wrench, a nice purple knob
with the hex key and this pin. The pin is for the variant 3 package, so I
don't need it. They've included some stickers as well, but I haven't
decided if I'll put them on my car.
For this application swaybar links are included. 5mm Front wheel spacers
are recommended but not included. They have to be sourced separately, but
we can help you with that.
Here's a closeup of the strut damping. You can't see it, but there's a
slight detent feel to the adjustment to help you track how many "clicks"
you've gone in either direction.
The knob is also used to tighten the lock screw on the ride height

BMW E30 Strut Housing Shortening Tutorial + Ground Control Coilover Build
This is a video tutorial on how to properly shorten your E30 front strut
housings to allow use of a shorter shock and how to assemble the Ground
Control Coilover Conversion kit once the housings are shortened.
The work was performed on my 1991 BMW 318is and my setup is as follows:
- Ground Control Coilover Conversion Kit - spring rates: 440f/650r
- Bilstein HD front shock inserts for a 325ix model E30
- 82-02 Camaro KYB
Gas-A-Just shock for the rear (not mentioned in video)
This video is just a general outline, your process may vary a bit depending
on what tools, parts or coilover setup you use.
*Work at your own risk. I am not responsible for any injuries or damaged
parts/tools if you decide to follow my tutorial, I am simply providing some
Text from the video:
Step 1: Begin by removing both front strut assemblies (not every step is
shown in this video)
Step 2: Once the strut assembly is out, remove the original top hats,
springs and strut inserts. Use a spring compressor to perform this. Work at
your own risk.
Step 3: Once everything is removed and the strut housing is bare, the next
step is to remove the original spring perch. Use your own preferred method
to do this. In my case, I used an angle grinder and cutoff wheel. Cut
around the top of the weld where the spring perch is welded to the strut
Step 4: Now it is time to cut the strut housing. Again, use your own
preferred method to do so, just make sure the cut is straight and perfectly
perpendicular to the strut tube to ensure that it doesn't have any slight
bends or angles when everything is welded up. Otherwise, camber will be
affected and the strut insert will not slide into the strut housing.
Step 5: Start your first cut just under the weld from the original spring
perch. I used a band saw. I made sure everything was level and
perpendicular and made my first cut.
Step 6: Now that the strut housing is cut into two pieces, it is time to
make the second cut. This cut will determine how much you are shortening
the strut housing by. Measure from where you just cut towards the top of
the housing (threaded section). It is recommended to not cut any more than
2". Make sure you do not cut into the threaded section of the housing. I
cut out 2". Note: The next clip shows what your strut housing should look
like before and after making both cuts. I accidentally have the middle
section flipped, which could cause confusion. This is the section that will
be thrown away anyways.
Step 7: Now you are ready to weld. Prepare the end areas for welding and
use welding magnets to keep everything perfectly positioned. Keep a small
gap between the ends for the new metal to fill. The size of the gap should
be the same size as the thickness of the metal of the strut housing.
Step 8: I would recommend MIG or TIG welding. When MIG welding, incorporate
sheilding gas rather than using flux core wire. This will yeild much
cleaner welds and better control. If you are ill-equipped or not
comfortable with welding, have a professional weld everything up for you.
Start off with a few tack welds and then weld the rest together all the way
Step 8: Once everything is welded up, grind the welds down so they are
flush with the rest of the strut housing. I recommend using an angle
grinder with flap disk.
Step 9: Now it is time to weld on the supplied adjuster perch. Use the
threaded spring adjuster sleeve as a guide. Situate it so that the top of
the adjuster sleeve is flush with the top of the strut housing as it sits
on the perch. Make sure the flat area of the new perch is facing out
towards the wheel. Start off by making a few tack welds and then weld the
rest. Only weld on the bottom of the perch.
Step 10: This is how the strut housings should look once complete. Prep and
paint to desired color. Do not leave any bare metal unpainted, it will rust
Step 11: Once painted, you are ready to assemble the coilovers. Start off
by putting two supplied O-ring's around the top of the strut housing to
ensure a snug fit for the adjuster sleeve. Leave roughly a 1" gap between
O-ring's. Install threaded adjuster sleeve.
Step 12: The next step depends on how much you shortened your housings by
and your strut insert choice. You want to be able to tighten the insert
down snugly with the collar nut. In my case, I had to make a 1.25" spacer
out of metal tubing to achieve this.
Step 13: Once the strut insert is in place, install the collar nut and
tighten it down. You will either need to buy or make a tool to tighten it.
Step 14: Install the spring adjuster followed by the spring itself.
Step 15: After the spring is in place, install the supplied top spring
plate followed by the
original top hat (or whichever top hat you decide to run).
Step 16: Double check to make sure everything is tightened to spec. Now
your new coilovers are complete and ready to install!
