New Tesla AirRide Kit

White Tesla Model 3 lowered on airide suspension

We have added some very special kits for the Tesla Model 3 and Model Y to our shop. These vehicles do not have the smoothest suspension on earth and benefit from the softest of air. These kits from our friends at UAS in California are well developed using OEM style components for  the best ride possible. As always with UAS they also have incredible lift and drop, and this is the kit we would use on our own car. One of the reasons that these models need air suspension is the weight of the vehicles with the battery packs which is about the same as many SUV's. The kit can be seen HERE.

The kits are easy to install being essentially a bolt on conversion, and can therefore be installed by any competent local garage or custom specialist, or of course we are happy to install at out Norwich premises. If you need more info please make contact via email or phone.

SALE! Nissan NV200 load support kit

NV200 Load support kit on blue background

As a company, we rarely do sales focusing instead of offering good value for money all year round. So when we do have a sale, customers get an even better deal!

This time we've reduced the price for our Nissan NV200 load support kit from £695 to £570. This is a limited time offer until 22/04/2022.

Load support is installed in addition to the original leaf spring. This kit improves stability and handling, reduces roll and helps with towing. It will lift sagging vehicles, however, it will NOT lower. For lifting and lowering your NV200 you need our Limo kit.

The load support kit is built by us here in Norwich and AVAILABLE HERE!

Last Dunlop Kits

Although we stopped stocking DSC Nederland B.V. (Dunlop Netherlands) kits some time ago we still warranty those we have sold and/or installed and we continue to hold spares. Every now and then we receive enquiries about Dunlop kits. These are some of the ones we have left currently.

Mitsubishi L200 4WD (2006-)

X62 RWD Master, Movano & NV400 (2010-)

Ford Transit Connect and Tourneo Connect (2002-2013)

Ford Ranger (1994-2011), Mazda B2300, B2500, BT50

Iveco Daily S (2014 – Current)

We also stock replacement Dunlop bags made by Dunlop Systems and Components in Coventry (Dunlop Coventry), compatible bellows from other sources, and some Dunlop Coventry products. Dunlop Netherlands kits are great on low weight vans which occasionally go to maximum weight but they are not so good on vehicles that spend all of their time at the full rated weight of the vehicle - which is every motorhome and most plumbers vans! Therefore we switched a few years ago to Boss kits as they are expressly designed for very heavy vehicles: vans, campervans and motorhomes. Boss kits use the heaviest duty brackets, and heaviest duty bags for any range of load support kits on the market. Firestone, VB Air Suspension, and Dunlop rate their bags and kits  in use up to about 100-105 psi usually. Heavy motorhomes can need all that pressure and often more. Boss bags are rated up to 160 psi, and are tested to not burst up to 750 or 1000 psi!! Neither us nor Boss have ever seen a properly fitted bag fail, burst or leak. Using a kit which is at around 50% of its capacity in use, results in a product that will last far longer than one used at 100% of its capacity. Kits requiring less than 50-60 psi in use will offer almost no useable support in most applications.

Check out the entire range of Boss load support kits HERE.

New! Tesla kits

lhd-model-3-social

We have recently added 2 new AirLift Performance kits for Tesla to our shop: Model 3 and Model Y.

Teslas are becoming a more and more common sight on Norfolk roads, let alone in the rest of the UK. Unlike Models S and X, Tesla 3 and Y do not come equipped with air suspension.

However, with the new kits from AirLift Performance you can drive on air with an aftermarket kit. With 30-Level Adjustable Damping - from a smooth ride to performance mode - and more than 70 years of industry experience, no wonder AirLift is the most iconic brand in air suspension!

You can also get air management to match: 3P computer controller pack for £1596, our most popular choice. 3P allows you to programme up to five pre-set heights – for instance, dropped, ride and high, and can be linked to a smartphone app. That way you can control your Tesla from outside the vehicle!

Available here:

Tesla Model 3

Tesla Model Y

NEW! Mercedes Sprinter/ VW Crafter (2006-2021) FRONT Kit

We are proud to present our latest development - the full front hybrid kit for Sprinter/Crafter! This hefty kit will replace your existing front suspension (transverse leaf spring on this particular vehicle) and includes replacement springs, upper brackets, lower brackets, underfloor pump and cage mounts and large twin bags. The max combined capacity is incredible 3.5 tons for the front axle - well beyond any real life scenario! It rides well, lifts well, drops loads and is something we have been constantly asked for over the past few years. So we finally did it!!!

Because of some of the characteristics of the Sprinter/Crafter front this is not a strut kit but a complete conversion kit.

From camper vans to custom show vehicles to vehicles that need delicate load solutions, there are many possible applications for this kit.

AVAILABLE HERE for pre-order. Final development/testing is underway but if you are interested in this product please reach out to be updated.

£3495 + shipping.

New: Improved VW Transporter T3 (1979-1992) Full Kit by AirRide

If you’re looking for both comfort and drop, this is the kit for you. Designed and made by us here in Norwich, it is a heavy duty kit with large diameter high capacity front bags. This is the correct bag for the size and weight of the vehicle and specifically designed for heavy motorhomes and campers. We also offer a TA Technix kit for this vehicle but its for lighter vehicles and is expressly unsuited to motorhomes which need a heavier kit. The kit uses some of the highest rated bags in common use on the market. Although some minor cutting and drilling is required to fit this kit it is worth it for the advantages it offers.

£1875 + air management.

The product page is being updated with more product info coming soon.

Important: Changes to AirLift Performance Warranty

There will be important changes to the manufacturer's warranty from 03/09/2021.

3P/3H/3S will have a 2 year warranty if purchased without AirLift Suspension.

3P, 3H and 3S will have a 4 year  warranty if purchased with a front and rear suspension kit from AirLift Performance.

Suspension kits have a 1 year warranty if bought without 3P, 3S, or 3H and a 2 year warranty if bought at the same time.

All warranties will be limited to the original buyer and proof of purchase will be required for warranty claims placed direct with AirLift. Registration of your warranty will be required.

This represents a clarification and compliance with UK law (which does not recognise the previously ambiguous terms used - Limited Lifetime Warranty). This is not a radical change but continues a top notch product, with excellent backup and clearer warranty terms.

Catching up: AirRide at Goblin Works ModShop

Looking back to last year...

As we have mentioned before, late in 2020 we were asked by Workerbee TV to help Goblin Works Garage with their new show “Mod Shop” and supplied air suspension parts for a Mini.

The episode was first broadcasted in March but now you can watch it for free HERE.
