Price Increases

Like most air suspension specialists we import many of the parts we sell. Most of these transactions are conducted in USD, and Euro. The United Stated Dollar was worth over £2 last year. It now only worth less than £1.40.

When you add into the equasion 23% import duty/vat and further tax on the freight charges (even though they are paid in USD to a US company!!!) plus the increases in prices from the suppliers then the net result is that the cost to us of the parts we buy has increased 34.4%!!!

Since that is more than our profit margin it has forced us to increase prices in line with the increased costs.

Please phone for the most up to date prices, which are currently being quoted on an individual customer by customer basis, and held suject to exchange rate fluctuations.

New VW T5 Van Kit

After a considerable amount of development we are ready to launch a VW T5 air suspension kit.

Because this is a van, there is likely to be more call for just the rear suspension, and although we can convert all four wheels, we will be offering modular kits, with various air suplies and controllers so you can have as little or as much as you require.

Chrysler PT Cruiser Kit

We are pleased to anouncce our new PT Cruiser air suspension kit. Using the latest technology in air bags this kit uses Quantum airbags on the front for a superb ride and superb handling.

New Chrysler PT Cruiser airride kit

Our test vehicle drove and handled far better than before the air. These new kits are such a step forward that air now offers suspension with almost as good handling as a “coil spring conversion”, combined with the comfort and ride of the original suspension, and the core ability that first attracts everyone to air, and thats the ability to lift the car at the touch of a button.

It really is the best of all worlds.

Please see the PT Cruiser page for full details.

Welcome All.

Welcome to the www.airride.co.uk new mini site.

Following the huge success of our air suspension systems we have at last found time to update the site. I hope to add information as I can and hopefully answer some of the many questions people ask of me.

Air suspension is very specialised, in a similar way that Lambo Doors are, and we are seeing the same pattern of people “giving it a go” – some with not such good results!!!

 My advice when choosing someone to install an air sustem for you is the same as with Lambos or a Bodykit – ask to see one they have done – if they cannot show you, walk away – it could save you thousands.

Secondly , just because a company is featured in a magazine does not mean that this should be taken as an endorsement of the company by the magazine as it most certainly is not. Car magazines are in the business of selling paper – they do not vett, validate or otherwise check out claims made by traders.

The actual fact of the matter is that legally the contents of an advert (or website) must be accurate, or the trader can get in trouble under various consumer protection acts. The same protection is not true of a magazine feature – so in some ways they are actually less reliable than an advert!!

Please purchase with care. These are expensive itmes, and failure can be both financially and physically costly.
