As one of the first suspension and coilover manufacturers, KW automotive has offered adaptive coilovers, since 2011 that are compatible with numerous control systems of various automotive manufacturers for the Aftermarket Industry.
The latest generations of adaptive KW DDC plug & play coilovers are now also available for the current Ford Focus RS III (DYB) and it is the intelligent retrofit solution.
The complete suspension control system of the KW coilovers works via the Ford series sensor system which also controls the KW valves. As a result, only the standard suspension has to be replaced by the KW suspension and the KW DDC plugs simply have to be connected to the original plugs.
The great advantage, like the series suspension, is the driver can switch between the modes via a button and the KW DDC plug & play coilover changes the damper forces within one hundredth of a second.
The adaptive DDC coilovers change according to the various modes and keep the Ford Focus RS under control at all times. It improves the driving dynamics and gives the driver perfect grip and control.
With the DDC coilovers it is still possible to switch between the different driving modes, Normal, Sport, Racetrack and Drift.
The Focus RS OEM dampers aren’t controlled by an suspension ECU and doesn’t benefit of an active chassis control. The OEM dampers are controlled by the activated driving mode the driver chooses. This fact also remain with our adaptive DDC plug&play coilovers because the Ford isn’t equipped with an active suspension sensor technology.
The adjustment of the lowering on the adaptive KW DDC plug&play coilovers is made via the dirt-resistant KW trapezoidal thread on the stainless steel strut and the rear axle height adjustment.
The approved range allows a continuous lowering of 30 to 55 mm on the front axle and 35 to 55 mm at the rear axles. Please visit our local KW suspensions homepage for further information at www.kwsuspensions.net
