Beetle (1998 – 2010 MK4)
Slammed MK4’s are pretty hard to beat—unless you can have that same slammed look and have amazing corner-carving ability. The Air Lift Performance threaded body struts will not only offer you the ability to lay subframe, but will also give you superior handling…all without sacrificing ride comfort.
Lowered coils or coilovers will give you some of these features, but you’ll always find yourself compromising at least one of your favorite ride characteristics. We don’t believe you need to compromise if you want to have a lowered look, performance handling, and great ride quality. You can get the best of all worlds with ALP air suspension; all it takes is a push of a button to lift up and clear obstacles, or lay your ride out low at a show. With our extensive racetrack testing, you can rest assured that your car will not only perform on the street, but on the track as well.
In order to drop the front 5.8 inches from factory height, we went with a fully threaded mono-tube strut, utilizing a smooth-riding, double-bellow air spring. Bolt-in camber plates, made of T6061 red anodized aluminum, provide alignment-tuning capability and help with wheel fitment. Thanks to the threaded body strut design, the height of the lower mount can be changed, enabling you to further adjust your height depending on wheel and tire size. With 30 different levels of damping, you can go from a soft, smooth ride to a race-car-like stiffness with the twist of the knob. Best of all, this kit allows you to retain your sway bar for the best in handling performance.
For the rear, we use a progressive-rate, tapered sleeve nestled in the place of the coil spring. This style of air spring will give you excellent ride quality and overall handling performance. A threaded body mono-tube shock with 30 levels of damping adjustment take the bounce out of the system, giving your ride very predictable and stable handling. All of this equates to a 4.9 inches drop in the rear.
