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.
If there was ever a vehicle crying to be slammed to the ground, it is the Audi A4. Muscular fenders, crisp lines and space for wide tires makes this a stellar platform for creating one bad Q-ship! If you crave the lowest stance possible and asphalt-hugging handling, your ride needs Air Lift’s incredible Performance Air Suspension kit.
This new kit represents a revolution for Air Lift Performance by utilizing an industry first: a 30-way adjustable, monotube shock as the foundation on which to build the finest air suspension. These high-performance shocks dissipate heat faster than twin tube shocks, and provide more consistent damping during hard driving or bumpy road conditions. Another new feature is the adjustable lower perches that allow ride height to be changed—independently from pressure—further increasing the flexibility of these kits.
You can dial in the preferred pressure, ride height, and damping combination for fantastic ride or maximum handling, and even adjust for different vehicle weight combinations. They look great too, with bright red anodized accents and shiny black powder coating to protect them for years to come. No one else in the world of air suspension has all these features!
The Audi A6 is one of the best-looking luxury automobiles out there. Flowing lines and muscular arches create a pleasing, streamlined shape, while German engineers built engines and chassis that make driving this Audi a great experience. The problem is, they come with a terrible wheel gap. If you crave the lowest stance possible and want asphalt-hugging handling, your ride needs Air Lift’s Performance Air Suspension kit! The foundation of this kit is a set of 30-way adjustable, high-quality monotube shocks. These high-performance shocks dissipate heat faster than twin tube shocks, and provide more consistent damping during hard driving or bumpy road conditions.
Another notable feature is the implementation of adjustable lower perches, which allow ride height to be changed independently of pressure, further increasing the flexibility of the kit. You can dial in the preferred pressure, ride height, and damping combination for a fantastic ride or maximum handling. You can even adjust for different vehicle weight combinations. They look great, too, with bright red anodized accents and a shiny black powder coating to protect them for years to come. No one else in the world of air suspension can offer all of these features!
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.
The A6 C5 chassis is probably one of the most diverse platforms ever offered by Audi. This chassis encompasses everything, from the utility-based All Road to the fire breathing RS6 luxury hot rod. With so many different models included in the line up, Audi had to make sure they included everything for everyone. Our only question is: did they really have to include that giant wheel gap?
Fortunately for us, they did decide to give the A6 the ground clearance of a mid-size pickup, and fortunately for you, we threw out that idea and put together a killer air suspension to give your Audi the ground-hugging stance it deserves. However, we were not satisfied with just going low. We wanted to go low without the compromises that you have to endure by using more conventional lowering methods. Sure, coil springs and coilovers will get you low, but do you really want to scrape up your ride everywhere you go, or end up with a stiff back from driving your luxury car? Of course not. That’s why the Air Lift Performance team of engineers designed this kit to not only go low, but to give you excellent ride quality AND the ability to carve corners that Audi never imagined would be possible!
To start things off, the front monotube threaded body shock is topped off with a smooth riding double-bellow air spring to allow the front end to drop 4.25′ from stock with the push of a button. Thirty different levels of damping will give you the option of a luxury-smooth ride or race-car-stiff and everything in between with just a simple twist of the knob. Red anodized end-caps keep the rubber air spring connected to the black, chromed shock bodies.
For the rear, a progressive rate sleeve style air spring was mounted to a 30-way adjustable, threaded body, monotube shock allowing the rear to become 5.98′ closer to the pavement. Since the front shocks turned out so well, we decided to use the same recipe for the rear, utilizing the same sexy red end-caps mated to black chromed shocks. Coupled with the front suspension, this is the lowest, best performing, no-compromise suspension you can put on your A6/C5.
