ST suspensions

Founded in Southern California back in the late seventies, ST suspensions have focused on the development of lowering springs, sport suspensions, and sway bars for sporty compact models. Over the decades, ST has become one of the most recognized brands in the US market. Since 2005, ST suspensions is part of the KW automotive Group and since then also carries coilovers manufactured at KW automotive in Germany in its product range. ST suspensions suspension components, which were previously offered exclusively in North America, have been distributed globally since 2014. ST suspensions offers a complete product range in a top quality in the mid-price segment, which is very interesting for numerous markets. For this reason, parts of the KW brand „Weitec – Fahrwerktechnik“ such as the sports suspensions, springs, or spring distance kits have also been integrated into the ST product range. The traditional company Power Tech with its spacers and rim locks, acquired since the beginning of 2013, is also part of the KW automotive group, and these products are also offered under the name ST suspensions, just like the newly developed ST AZX and ST DZX.

The ap sport suspension brand has been a part of KW automotive since May 1, 2019. The suspension components of the ap Sportfahrwerke brand are classic tuning components such as height-adjustable ap coilovers, lowering springs, and sports suspensions only. Customers of ap Sportfahrwerke get therefore an aftermarket entry-level tuning product at the best price with the engineering of the market leader for individual suspension solutions.

KW automotive, the suspension manufacturer, has been a development partner and supplier for selected limited edition models in the automotive industry for years. Croatian electric hypercar manufacturer Rimac Automobili also relies on the expertise of KW automotive. The Rimac C_Two is much more than a hypercar; it’s an electric GT hypercar that needs to be comfortable during long journeys and deliver high performance on various racetracks. The Rimac C_Two can accelerate from 0 to 300 km/h in just 11.6 seconds. The requirements placed on the suspension are accordingly high.
