At the Nürburgring Nordschleife, the fifth generation of the Honda Civic Type R (FC) is among the fastest compact sportscars. For all enthusiasts of the Civic Type R who miss the possibility of a camber adjustment for even more direct handling with their Honda and want the maximum driving dynamics; KW automotive, the suspension manufacturer, has developed the ST XTA coilover suspension sold under the brand ST suspensions.

Compared to other suspension systems, the ST XTA with its adjustable dampers and two-piece racing suspension system is the ideal performance accessory for the road. Combined with the stiffer Type R body and Dual Axis Strut Front Suspension, as used on numerous other front-wheel-drive compact sports models such as the Astra OPC, Focus R.S. and Mégane R.S., the ST XTA coilover makes the 320 hp Honda an uncompromising cornering acrobat.

The adjustable top mounts on the front axle allow the camber to be adjusted to exploit the full performance potential of sports tires. By changing the camber angle, the tires are given an optimum contact surface for maximum tire grip when cornering fast. The ST Unibal bearings make the handling of the Civic even more direct. Another unique feature of the ST XTA, when compared to conventional sports suspensions, are the adjustable rebound valves in the KW dampers used exclusively by ST suspensions. The 16 click levels make it easy to adjust the damping precisely to your individual driving style. Depending on the setting, the damping of the Honda Civic Type R becomes more comfortable or tighter. The driving behavior can also be specifically influenced in terms of braking and steering, as well as in deflection and acceleration. Compared to the series, the compact sports car with the ST XTA steers much more directly and even at the driving dynamics, limits the ST coilover suspension ensures razor-sharp handling.

The Honda Civic Type R (FC) can be steplessly lowered from 10 to 30 millimeters on both axles as part of the parts certificate. In the case of high-quality suspensions, such as ST suspensions with their KW dampers, the days when lowering the suspension makes it less comfortable to roll are long gone. It is often the case that, despite a lowering of 30 millimeters, the spring travel is 10 millimeters longer than with the standard damper. For further information please visit
