ST coilover suspension kits for all KIA cee’d and Pro cee’d GT (JD)
Unbelievable, a few years ago the KIA Pro cee’d GT (JD) won against Opel Astra GTC and VW Scirocco in an awesome comparison of the German magazine AUTO BILD. Nowadays the KIA cee’d and Pro cee’d models of the JD generation is a popular pre-owned car. For all Kia cee'd models (JD) ST suspensions now offers coilovers that are developed and manufactured directly at KW automotive in Germany.
Besides the ST X coilover suspension, ST suspensions also offers the ST XA coilover suspension with adjustable rebound damping for KIA Pro cee’d and cee’d (JD). Both coilover suspensions kits guarantee a lowering of 35 to 55 millimeters (front axle) and 25 to 50 millimeters (rear axle).
The difference between the ST X and the ST XA coilover suspension is that the XA uses a two-stage rebound valve which allows tuning of the rebound dampening in the low-speed range with 16 exact clicks. With both ST coilovers the handling becomes more direct. During fast load changes, the body does not bounce as much as before, the tire grip is increased and the car benefits of more driving safety.
Through numerous road tests and endurance tests, the ST X coilovers feature a tuned damper setup that provides a more direct handling and more grip when driving enthusiastically. The days when an adjustable suspension kit meant a hard and uncomfortable ride are long gone. By using a shorter damper housing, the ST suspension travel can even be longer than the standard suspension by a centimeter.
Via the trapezoid thread, the ST X and ST XA coilovers allow a continuous lowering of 35 to 55 millimeters directly at the galvanized ST strut. At the rear axle, an approved lowering between 25 and 50 millimeters is possible. This allows sufficient flexibility to make with easy adjustments a good looking performance stance for this Korean Hot Hatch.
The main springs of the ST coilover suspension kits for the KIA pro_cee´d GT and cee’d (JD) can also be ordered in individual color coating options. Available are 18 different colors and customized lettering.
