Volkswagens have always looked better lowered, but scraping around the streets, damaging your fenders just isn’t cool anymore. The solution? An Air Lift Performance suspension, featuring raised ground clearance for everyday driving, as well as a super low stance and track-tuned handling, all available at the push of a button.

This high-performance threaded-body system has been specifically designed for the VW Mk5 and Mk6 Golf platforms, giving you the ability to adjust the ride height even while on the move. At the push of a button, your VW can be lowered up to 5.8 inches on both the front and rear! The end result is a car that not only looks amazing, but also significantly improved suspension performance, all without sacrificing practicality.

On the front, our threaded body, bag-over style strut allows for 30 levels of adjustability on the monotube damper, designed to suit all your driving needs — from pillow soft, all the way to a stiff performance setup. Bolt-in camber plates, made of T6061 red anodized aluminum, provide alignment-tuning capability and help with wheel fitment. Each strut also features a threaded-body which allows you to perfectly setup the vehicle by changing the position of the lower mount on the strut.

On the rear, we employed the use of progressive-rate sleeved bags with dampers that simply bolt on to the chassis. Just like in the front, the rear dampers use red anodized T6061 aluminum upper mounts but instead feature rubber isolators.

The VW Golf Mk5/Mk6 threaded body kit is available with a range of Air Lift Performance management options, including our innovative 3H height and pressure sensing system. We used a state-of-the-art 32-bit processor, advanced height + pressure algorithms plus a full color controller with built in Bluetooth connectivity to make 3H the most advanced air management system yet.

Installation is simple with our detailed instruction manuals. Anyone with the skill to wire a stereo and to swap suspension components can have their car on the ground in only a matter of hours. Basic hand tools are the only things necessary to complete the job. Keep in mind that if you are looking for the ultimate low look, some modifications and fabrication will be required.

We test the components of this kit to 1 million cycles (approximately 100,000 miles) on a hydraulic test rig at temperatures from -30°F to 150°F. This test lab work, coupled with thousands of miles of on-road testing, not to mention a one-year manufacturer’s warranty on our Performance Series suspension and limited lifetime warranty on 3P and 3H, gives you a kit that you know you can count on to handle whatever the road throws down.

With several suspension styles I can honestly say that these new coil-over style air bags are the best suspension I have ever had in my GT500 hands down!
