Performance, practicality and German reliability – what’s not to love about the Mk1 Audi S3? Its 1.8-turbo engine delivers 225bhp through all four wheels and early examples can be had for very little money. Combine this with our latest Slam Series air suspension and the result is a show worthy car without sacrificing usability.
Put simply, coilover suspension cannot compete with the versatility of Air Lift. This kit will get you lower than any coil suspension while still providing crisp handling and a smooth ride thanks to the use of double bellow air springs all round. Once fitted, the Mk1 Audi S3 can be lowered (from stock height) up to 5.8-inches on the front axle and 4.8-inches on the rear. In order to achieve the lowest drop possible, the Air Lift Performance bags compress to an amazingly slim 2.3-inches allowing even the biggest wheels to tuck hard (providing they clear the fenders).
Fancy tearing up the track? Every Air Lift Performance suspension kit is racetrack tested and tuned to ensure that all your handling expectations are met. With infinitely adjustable ride height you no longer need to worry about driveway entrances or speed bumps to enjoy a lowered car every day. Forget about the punishing ride usually associated with ultra-low coilover setups!
Air Lift torture-tests each component on our rig for over 1-million cycles, simulating a real-world mileage of around 100,000. Anyone with the skill to wire a stereo and swap suspension components can have their car on the ground in a matter of hours. Only basic hand tools are necessary to complete the job. Keep in mind some frame modifications and fabrication skill will be required.
