Ford | AirRide Gold


If you’re looking to drop your Ford as low as possible, an AirRide Gold kit is perfect for you. Not only does it offer a staggering level of drop, it also offers a decent ride and good handling, considering the height you’ll be driving at! And of course, with air suspension, this is combined with all the added practicality your Ford needs, too.

Gold kits are available for the Ford Focus, Focus C-Max, Focus ST, Fiesta, Mondeo and Mustang (select your model from the drop-down menu below but if you don’t know exactly which one is yours then please feel free to call or e-mail us).

All AirRide Gold kits are full conversion kits (front and rear, as opposed to just rear) and can come with an air control system. They are also bolt-on, and so very easy to install. For a full list of everything included in the kit please click the Description tab below.

All kits also come with a one-year warranty.

AirRide Gold is a bolt-on air suspension system that allows you to drop your Ford as low as possible.

It also provides you with the right amount of lift to ensure your car remains practical and undamaged – it’s the ideal way to make your car both stylish and effective.

This means your Ford’s handling and ride quality will be remain decent, while you are also able to adjust the ride height at will and while driving, so you can avoid any obstacles on the road as they come. Most systems will offer a ride range of around five inches but this will vary slightly depending on the kit.

The kits are also incredibly simple to fit, so any local garage should be able to install the system for you, or you may even be able to fit it yourself! It is 100% bolt-on, so no fabrication is needed to attach it to your Ford.

You can also choose to include an air control (otherwise known as air management) system of your choosing. This can be a Manual Paddle Control kit, which includes four buttons similar to an electric window switch; each button controls the amount of air over each wheel.

Alternatively, you can choose to have a digital computer system. This is a small block with a single line attached for a wired controller (but you could use a phone app instead), and so doesn’t take up much space. This allows you to have total control of your air suspension system at all times, setting the ride height as you go.

Last but not least, each AirRide Gold kit, with air management, also includes a Viair 444C compressor or equivalent. The compressor is integral to the smooth running of your air suspension and the 444C allows you to run your system as much as you want at high pressures. It is compact too, so is easily stored on any Ford.

Here’s exactly what you get in your kit:

  • Two front Ford performance air struts
  • Two rear Ford performance bags and brackets
  • Shock absorbers (with most kits)
  • Necessary bolts and fittings to install the system

You can also add an air control system if you wish. To get the most from an AirRide Gold kit a control system is recommended.

If your system needs are not met or if you have questions, please don’t hesitate to email or call us on 0800 772 0315.


Car kits can be supplied with or without air control (otherwise known as air management or On-Board Air (OBA). This allows you to get the very best out of your kit at all times. It allows the ride height to be adjusted for road, weather and load conditions, and for those who experience grounding issues it allows the absolute maximum lift to be achieved when needed (i.e. for ferries, petrol stations and rough site entrances). Air control packages come in various specifications as outlined below. If in doubt, please contact us via email or phone.
