With a nickname like Godzilla, you are probably not going to get by solely on your good looks. Whether you think the GT-R is drop-dead gorgeous, or you think it looks like a 27-year-old-catfish, there is no denying it: this car is a fire-breathing monster when it comes to performance. With a twin-turbo six-cylinder, bold styling, and more cool technology than the last space shuttle, Nissan put together an absolute beast of a super car with this GT-R.
Now, we understand that a mind-boggling number of hours and a ton of money went into the development of the GT-R, which we can surely appreciate. However, we see nothing wrong with feeding Godzilla steroids. Our Air Lift Performance engineers sat down to design our most advanced air suspension to date, knowing that they had to make an already-great machine even better.
In order to drop the front 4.17′ and the rear 4.5′, we sourced parts worthy of your superior car. We used our smooth-riding, double-bellows air springs mated to black chromed monotube threaded body shocks–with both the front and the rear topped off with red anodized upper mounts and high-quality monoball bearings. These shocks offer independent adjustment for compression and rebound for the ultimate in tunability. A remote reservoir is mounted to each shock, allowing them to stay cooler, which equates to less cavitation and fade under high-performance driving conditions.
It’s not all about fancy parts and a show-stopping stance, though. This suspension was designed on the racetrack with handling performance that leads the way in development. In recent back-to-back testing, our air suspension outperformed the stock suspension in R mode on the road course! Not only will the air springs give you a smooth, progressive spring rate under hard driving, but the 30 levels of damping adjustment really allow you to fine-tune the ride, and give you the handling you are looking for. Go from a smooth, comfortable ride to race-car-stiff handling with a twist of the knobs.

Does the wheel gap on your new Audi make you cringe, but you don’t want to sacrifice ride quality and handling? Well, we understand that you bought your Audi because you crave a high-performance, well-handling machine. We also understand that you want to modify your ride without compromising its factory-made excellence.
That’s why Air Lift Performance developed the bag-over-style, threaded body strut kit. Not only does this mono-tube strut offer you a whole new world of adjustment—by simply changing the height of the lower strut mount—but it also has 30 levels of damping adjustment to really let you conquer the track. To help you reduce your lap times even further, we have included adjustable camber plates that utilize a high-quality spherical bearing. This kit also retains the use of the front sway bar, so you no longer need to sacrifice handling to go low!
In the rear, we use double-bellow bags with brackets that simply bolt on to the chassis, no cutting required! When you couple our smooth riding bags with our 30-way damping, adjustable shocks, you get the kind of drop, improved handling, and superb ride quality you are looking for out of your Audi.
By now, you have figured out you can improve your handling with Air Lift Performance parts… but what about going low? With the proper frame modifications, you can expect a 5.8inch drop in the front and the rear from your sky-high factory ride height—making it impossible for your neighbor’s cat to hide out under your ride.
Everyone at Air Lift Performance is seriously addicted to the thrill of a corner, taken at speed and going as low as the ground will allow. So rest assured; your kit has been track-tested and tuned to give you the best handling experience as possible, and it’s been engineered to give you a ground smothering stance.
Lower your Accord, improve your handling, and get control over your suspension! This is the most versatile choice for suspension on today’s market; go from the street to the show floor with the push of a button. These air-over shock kits are designed to give you maximum performance with our 9-way adjustable damping system—previously only found on high-end coilovers. This allows you to tune the ride and handling to your liking.
With the performance side covered, let’s talk about style and versatility. Adjust your ride height with the flip of a switch (something that coilovers will never do). Wheel gap never helped anyone win a car show or get you noticed! Tuck those rims up where they’re supposed to be— this kit will set you on the ground, let you clear speed bumps, and get in and out of driveways without scraping your ride. Not only that, but you’ll also get the remarkably smooth ride that air provides.
Are you looking to go as low as possible with your VW for show season? Do you still need to use your car as daily A-to-B transportation? Do you value great ride and handling? If you want to combine all of those dreams with one simple solution, then look no further than Air Lift Performance! We have stepped up the air suspension game with our new air strut with threaded body and bag-over-style. Our monotube struts are 30-way damping adjustable, and allow you to change the ride quality from a plush, smooth ride to a stiff performance feel with the twist of the damping knob. Since these struts have a threaded body, not only can you change the height of your vehicle with air pressure, but you can also change the position of the lower mount on the strut to fine-tune the height to your liking.
For the rear, we use double-bellow bags and brackets that simply bolt right onto the chassis—no cutting required! When you couple our smooth-riding bags with our 30-way damping adjustable shocks, you get the kind of drop and improved handling you are looking for in your Volkswagen.
