Are you looking for a quality  suspension to drop your Impreza? Is ride and handling important to you? Do you really want to set your car apart from the crowd?

Yes, there are plenty of choices out there for Subarus…Problem is, you have been lured by all these other incredible cars slammed to the ground and secretly long for that look on your Subi.  Plenty of people out there think it wrong to bag a Subaru because they think it will somehow degrade the sports sedan handling or make it ride like a marshmallow. Maybe you are torn by this prospect yourself, but still, that stanced look has you thinking…

Well fear not! You really can have both.  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 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 the presence of adjustable camber plates on all 4 corners. This allows easy, precise adjustment of camber angle making quick work of alignments for road or track.  These plates are packed with high-quality, Japanese manufactured pillow ball bearings for long life and low noise.

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…

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 proved important to creating the proper handling balance.  And hours of running hard  at triple digit speeds in a 550hp beast certainly illustrates the toughness and durability of the parts!

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.

Perhaps you are worried about installation?  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.

The time has come.  The excuses are just that.  Haven’t you waited long enough to have it all??
