Description

Air Lift Performance kits are bolt-on air suspension systems that allow you to control the height and ride quality of your Golf.

Most kits come in ‘Slam’, which drops your Golf lower and uses reversible sleeve bags, or ‘Performance’, which uses slightly bigger double-convoluted air bags.

Air Lift kits are perfect for dropping your Golf right to the ground, but they also provide 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 Golf’s handling and ride quality will be maintained while you are also able to adjust the ride height at will and while driving, meaning 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 depending on what Golf you have.

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 Golf.

You can also choose to include an air management system of your choosing. This allows you to get the very best from your air and adjust your ride height while on the move. See the Options tab for more info.

Last but not least, each Air Lift Performance kit from AirRide, 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 Golf.

Here’s exactly what you get in your kit:

  • Two front VW Golf performance air struts
  • Two rear VW Golf performance air struts
  • Four air bags, one for each corner (built into struts)
  • Necessary brackets, bolts and fittings to install the system

You can also add an air management system if you wish. To get the most from an Air Lift Performance kit a control system is recommended. With a management system you also get:

  • An air tank, if needed
  • Viair 444C compressor or equivalent

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.

About Air Lift Performance

Air Lift was founded in Michigan, USA, in 1949, and ever since then has been at the cutting edge of air suspension design.

Throughout 70 years of designing and manufacturing air bags they have routinely given car owners fresh reasons to get air ride – from Air Lift-fitted stock racing cars in the ‘50s and ‘60s, to the ‘90s when Air Lift Performance was founded to slam custom cars, to now, when Performance air suspension offers a smooth, street-skimming ride for anyone looking to add more style to their pride and joy.

Options

Air Lift Performance kits can be supplied with or without air management (otherwise known as On-Board Air (OBA)).

Air management allows you to get the very best from 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). If in doubt, please contact us via email or phone.

No compressor, no tank

You can have an Air Lift Performance kit with no air management system but this is not recommended. With this option you will receive the air bags, brackets and struts required for a basic air suspension system, but no compressor or tank, as without some form of control system the compressor and tank would not be able to function correctly.

Manual Paddle Control (MPC)

MPC comes with an aluminium, 100% duty cycle compressor with up to 200 PSI and an air tank. It is controlled with four buttons, one for each air bag. The buttons act like electric window switches, meaning you can either raise or lower the amount of pressure in each air bag by pressing up and down on each switch.

Digital computer system

The computer system comes with an aluminium 100% duty cycle compressor with up to 200 PSI and an air tank. It electronically controls the amount of pressure in each air bag. This can be controlled either with a wired controller or a phone app.  With the computer, you can adjust your car to certain pre-set heights and alter the vehicle’s height while on the move. This is also the easiest system to install; it is the most highly-recommended option.

Other options

If you would prefer an air control system other to those listed, please feel free to call or e-mail us. We are happy to discuss your personal requirements and make sure you get the air control system that is right for you.

Fitment

Although these kits are specifically for the VW Golf, we supply Air Lift Performance kits for many other vehicles. To find an Air Lift kit for your car, select ‘Air Lift’ and then the relevant page for your car from the ‘Shop’ section above.

If we don’t provide a kit for your specific car, we can still provide air suspension for most vehicles. Please feel free to call us on 0800 772 0315 or email us to discuss options for your Golf or other vehicle.

One of the main features of Air Lift Performance is that they are bolt-on kits. This means that your local garage should be able to fit the kit without much difficulty. Alternatively, give us a call (0800 772 0315) and we can arrange the installation on your behalf. We are also happy to talk you or your garage through the installation process.

Warranty

AirRide Sales Limited offers a warranty on Air Lift products for a period of two years from time of purchase. This warranty is limited to the original purchaser and subject to registration at the time of fitting. If you fail to register then a one-year warranty is offered.

If the kit does not appear to fit – STOP and call us, as a vehicle misidentification may have occurred. Kits will be accepted for return and exchange only if they are undamaged. The buyer must cover the return postage.
