The hydraulic lift suspension for Audi R8
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.
KW Hydraulic Lift System
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.

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.

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.
