If you own a 350Z, then you appreciate all of the things that make up a sportscar: great handling, sexy looks and a wonderful engine sounds!  The Z has a great heritage and is a solid platform to build a modified car.  And when it comes to lowering your ride, you have plenty of choices out there.  Problem is, none have the versatility to get you the lowest slam height possible AND the handling that you expect from a sportscar. That is everyone but Air Lift Performance…

Air Lift Performance has created the perfect suspension kit to tear up a racetrack or stop people dead in their tracks at a show.  As the leader in aftermarket high-performance air suspension, we know what it takes to perfectly balance ride, handling and stunning good looks.  The engineering team involved in the design and development of these kits are real car guys that has over 35 years of road racing experience as drivers, engineers and crew. Performance is not just in our name, it’s in our blood.

So, what does it take to have such a versatile suspension?  It all starts with having a strong foundation.  In this case, the struts: Air lift uses 30-way adjustable, monotube struts with a serious range of damping adjustment that have been specially tuned to match the air springs.  Monotube construction is the preferred choice in racing and for us for its sensitivity to small inputs as well as the great ability to shed heat when pushed to the limit.  The 30 clicks of adjustment aren’t just for fun, but rather allow the user to dial in his preferred handling feel or desired ride quality.  The range goes from super stiff to really soft, adjusting rebound and compression together,  but with proportionally more rebound. And the struts weigh considerably less than the coil spring parts you remove, reducing unsprung weight: a benefit to both ride and handling.

Another notable feature is  T-6061 aircraft aluminum upper mounts that are built around Japanese manufactured pillow ball bearings for long life and low noise and the quickest damping response.

What sets these struts way apart from the coil crowd is the addition of our adjustable, progressive rate air springs.  These high-rate springs create a stable platform for aggressive track driving while providing a level of comfort not typically found with lowered suspensions.   By using this progressive nature of air springs and maximizing available suspension travel, we are able to ride low without the punishing ride.  And since they allow ride height to be adjusted with a button, no longer do you suffer the curses of static suspension lowness!  No issues with speed bumps or steeply angled drives.  Raise it up as high as stock to ride off-road without damaging the underbody.  And think how easy it is to load it on the trailer or get your jack underneath.

Having good components in a kit is important, but making sure they work together to give the desired result is just as critical.  Extensive testing at various race tracks and autocrosses proved important to creating the proper handling balance that makes this car so fun to drive! This kind of abuse also illustrates the toughness and durability of the parts when pushed to the limit.

But that’s not all.  Before a kit makes it to the track, the components are torture tested on our hydraulic test rig for over 1 million cycles, simulating a real-world 100K miles.  And as an ISO 9000 certified company, Air Lift is committed to quality disciplines and continuous improvement in all areas which translates to the best experience for the customer.

Perhaps you are worried about installation?  To ease your mind, every kit comes with a detailed instruction manual to guide you through all the steps. If you can install suspension and wire a stereo, you have the skills necessary to make it happen.  And if you have questions, or a problem, our industry leading customer service department will take good care of you.

You have a great car.  Give it the best suspension upgrade possible that is at home on the street, the show field and the track!
