About BMW e36 3-Series

Three letters come to mind when you mention sport touring luxury, BMW.  Through a good part of the 90′s BMW ruled this segment of the market with the introduction of the E36 model. With the reputation the E36 has earned over the years, it has become an excellent candidate for modifications on the show field and the road course.  Air Lift Performance has embraced the E36′s sexy looks and performance capabilities with a complete air suspension that will allow your Bimmer to lay on the ground or carve corners at your favorite track.

We understand you have many options to lower your BMW, but when you try to compare them to the versatility that air provides, everything else comes up short.  Sure coil springs will get you low and improve your handling, but do you want to deal with the lumber wagon type ride?  Coil-overs are cool, but who wants to use a wrench when you want to lower your car for the ultimate killer stance.  With the push of a button you can raise your ride to clear speed bumps and cumbersome steep driveways, with no worry of scraping your undercarriage.  Best of all the ride quality is unbeatable, you are literally riding on air!

Up front we start with our mono-tube threaded body strut partnered with our smooth riding double bellow air spring.  Not only can you change the height of the car by increasing or decreasing air pressure, but since the strut body is threaded you can change the height of the strut simply by spinning the lower mount up or down.  To add even more adjust-ability these struts have 30 different level of damping so you can go from a smooth street ride to race car like stiffness with the twist of a knob.  To top it all off we include adjustable caster/camber plates made out of T6061 aluminum and anodized red for a show stopping appearance and excellent race track adjust-ability.

For the rear we replace the coil spring with a double bellow air spring to compliment the front for the ultimate in ride quality.  We also swap out the rear shock a threaded body mono-tube shock which also has 30 levels of damping adjust-ability for your tuning pleasure.

Installation is simple with Air Lift Performance’s detailed instruction manuals, anyone with the skill to wire a stereo and swap suspension components can have their car on the ground or tearing up your favorite road course in a matter of hours.  Only basic hand tools are necessary to complete the job.

As the leader in air suspension products for over 60 years, Air Lift is committed to delivering quality parts that last.  To ensure longevity for the customer, the key suspension components have been tested on a durability rig for over 1 million cycles, which equates to 100K miles.  With a 1 year, unlimited mileage warranty, and the Air Lift reputation for great customer service and technical support, you can purchase this kit with peace of mind.  Ditch those coils and get to a new level of low!
