Default Question on KW H.A.S. kit for 991.2 GTS

Anyone has the KW H.A.S. kit installed on your 991.2 GTS? I would like to buy a set online but have trouble finding the exact part number. In the US KW website the part number seems to be 25371043 but a note indicates that it's not for car with centerlock wheels.
If anyone has it installed on your .2 GTS with centrelock wheels could you share the part number? Thanks in advance.

I am also interested in this kit and have centerlock wheels on my 991.2 GTS.

Also I have a couple of additional questions,
1) Can someone confirm this kit has helper springs for this model (I am assuming that is part of the 2x cost increase over the H&R version)
2) Wheel tuck confirmation with lowering the GTS lower than SPASM, does it look ok or too much tuck.

It seems that most folks who planned to lower went with 5lugs so they can easily space out. I originally thought would be happy with the SPASM ride height but when I received the car I thought that it had came with PASM. Not looking to rice it up, but I prefer the look of the GT3 stance.

I contacted KW about the sleeve kit for my 991.2 Carrera T and this is the response I got:

"I spoke with our KW brand manager. He received confirmation from our Germany location that part number 25371043 will work on your 991.2.

Sorry it took me a little while to respond. I wanted to make sure the information I relayed to you was accurate.

Your T doesnít have centerlock wheel though. The problem with part number 25371043 is that in the US website it said itís not for cars with centerlock wheels. When I check the UK site for example they didnít indicate that.

Why don't you contact KW directly like I did? Seems like you would get a better answer there than on the forums.

I want to take advantage on an online sale for this weekend only and I have contacted several dealers and KW itself and they are all closed at the moment.

I am surprise that not many people have it installed in their 991.2 with centerlock.

I was initially interested in these but lack of support/part number confusion and being told these are not for sale in the U.S. put me off.

Take a look at the H&R VTF kit. BGB Motorsports installed them on their 991.2 GTS. I would contact them.

KW confirmed that it wonít fit cars with centerlock wheels as the axle is different.

Checking out the H&R VTF now. BGBís 991.2 GTS also have five lugs. So again there may be issues with centerlock but will find out.

BGB guy I think his name is John.. Did not like/suggest the H&R VTF. I asked him and he said he'd go with the KW's.

I spoke with KW directly and they were going to sell me a set for the GTS at a much higher price than advertised.

TAG was going to sell me a set for roughly $1200 shipped during a sale they had on KW products.

I've become reluctant to mess with the OEM suspension/geometry.

Also ran H&R springs on my C4S. Did not like.

Good to know.

What is it about the centerlock that makes the kit incompatible?

I have no idea but two people were going to sell me the kit and they both knew I had a GTS w/ CL wheels.

Centerlocking wheels have no impact on suspension fitment. If you want to "slam" the car then get actual coilovers. KW HAS kit does have height adjustability.

H.A.S.

Height. Adjustable. Springs.

Height:

Spring:

a piece of curved or bent metal that can be pressed into a smaller space but will return to its usual shape if released.
