As much as most of us hate driving our bagged rides in the winter, a lot of us have no choice. The best thing about air suspension is being able to lift your car to stay out of the white stuff, but the cold temperature can have an affect on your control system.

A common problem in winter is that the condensation you have in your system can actually freeze, which will cause a block in your lines or valves. When this happens your system basically becomes useless and you could become stranded. However there are a few things you can do to prevent this from happening.

Air Lift Company has a long and storied history in Lansing, Michigan since 1949. Over the years products have changed, people have changed, buildings have even changed, but one thing that has not changed is the commitment to producing a quality product. The dedicated staff has been the backbone of success over the years, concentrating on producing the best vehicle suspension components possible.
After years of producing air bags for load support and towing purposes, in 1999 Air Lift expanded it’s focus to custom vehicles. The Easy Street division of Air Lift was created and thrived on the huge mini-trucker trend that was sweeping across the U.S. A little over ten years later Easy Street was given a name change and a complete revamp. Air Lift Performance was born with a focus on not only going low, but also much improved ride quality and race car like handling.
We are very excited to partner with our friends at AWOL.TV to produce some behind the scenes video giving you a look at the inner workings of Air Lift Company and Air Lift Performance.

VW addicts…get your fix from Air Lift Performance with the latest offering: a rear bag kit for the MKIV R32 and Audi TT Q! Now you AWD guys can enjoy the incredible drop and smooth ride of an Air Lift kit like your FWD brethren.
This new kit uses an innovative design on the upper endcap that only requires a slight trimming of the original coil spring locating bump on the chassis so that going back to coils is not an issue (not sure who would want to do THAT , but hey..it’s possible!). Another unique feature not found on other brands is the use of a double bellows air spring with a roll plate. This style of spring provides a better ride than a single bellows as well as considerably more lift. You will also love the drop as the springs compress to amazingly low 2.3″ height, which should be more than enough to tuck your wheels hard if they clear the fenders! And as always, a comprehensive instruction manual included to make your install as easy as possible.
If you just have to have one, feel free to contact your favorite Air Lift dealer and get yourself a set.
