KW Hydraulic Lift-System

Make life easy when negotiating obstacles
for sporty cars with low ground clearance

More ground clearance by the push of a button

With the HLS lift system you can lift your sports car or lowered vehicle to safely negotiate obstacles such as speedbumps, railroad crossings, road works, garages and underground car parks. Depending on the version of the HLS lift system your vehicle can be hydraulically lifted either at the front axle or on both axles by up to 45 mm.

This prevents damage to your aerodynamic components, underbody protection or even oil sump. The lift system is available either as a vehicle-specific solution with or without a KW coilover kit, depending on the type of car and the model. If you cannot find your vehicle in our KW HLS product range, our engineers have also developed a universal lift system.

A great solution made by KW

For a wide range of super cars and general everyday cars our HLS is available as an application-specific solution. Included in the delivery are such parts as the hydraulic lines or hydraulic pump adapted to your vehicle, all components will fit perfectly to your sports car. No matter if you want to combine the HLS with your series suspension kit or our KW coilovers which are one of the worlds top aftermarket products, the choice is yours. Alpina, BMW M, Manthey, Mercedes-Benz AMG, Novitec Rosso and many other well-known companies of the international automotive industry place their trust in KW coilover kits.

The lift kit "HLS 2" is only installed on the front axle. "HLS 4" allows you to lift the entire vehicle. A hydraulic cylinder is installed between spring plate and springs of each KW strut. The great advantage of the hydraulic system is that driving dynamics are not affected. The delivery content for all HLS lift kit versions include a control unit, which is connected to the vehicles on-board electronics. The vehicle will be automatically lowered at a certain speed to the original level of the KW coilover kit or your series suspension.

Installation Story - Porsche 911 GT3 RS with KW HLS

The speedbump is the natural enemy of lowered cars. Rail road crossings or garage exits are also a threat to spoilers and underbody. Ugly scratches or even torn parts can be a result of hitting such obstacles.

KW HLS lifts your car by the push of a button by up to 45 mm in order to negotiate obstacles without any problems, which is not possible when at regular vehicle height.

KW HLS lift kit Universal

The universal HLS lift kit allows lowered vehicles to negotate obstacles. The kit is available as a set for the front axle and as a complete set for both axles.

This is an universal lift kit that can be installed to existing KW coilover solutions.

The functions to lift the vehicle are the same as the KW HLS lift kit.

Structure and function
of a KW coilover kit

KW-Edelstahl-Federbein

A KW coilover with its 100 percent corrosion resistant stainless steel strut housings can be height adjusted at all times. With our dirt resistant trapezoid thread and durable composite height adjuster collar adjustment is possible after many years of driving pleasure.

The polyamid composite collar:

Polyamid Gewindering

In contrast to anodized adjustable spring seats made of aluminum, at KW we use a durable polyamid composite collar with a stainless steel insert. So even with the influence from dirt particles, such as brake dust or sand grains, the polyamide composite collar will not be damaged.
