KW VARIANT 2 DAMPER KIT FOR 356
As prototyped on the very 356 restomod featured in this issue of Classic Porsche, this KW Variant 2 adjustable damper kit is suitable for all iterations of the mid-engined, four-cylinder model (street use only), including Cabriolet and Speedster body styles. In addition to highquality manufacturing, including the use of stainless steel dampers, corrosion-resistant components and anodised finishes, this performance suspension package convinces with the possibility to adjust the rebound setting of each shock absorber to your own requirements by way of a rotary control offering a range of sixteen different ‘click’ settings, making the dampers tighter or more comfortable without affecting the bottom valve of compression damping. By increasing the rebound force via the adjustment wheel, the host 356’s body movements are vastly reduced, meaning your car will drive with increased directional stability, as well as with elimination of body roll when tackling the corners punctuating your favourite backroads. As with all KW products, the parts in this kit were thoroughly put through their paces during comprehensive test cycles on the Nürburgring Nordschleife and in the German brand’s own test centre, which plays host to a seven-post rig used to fine-tune damper settings specific to each application.
