Imagine a suspension system that allows a super-low stance, track-tuned handling and – at the push of a button – raised ground clearance for everyday driving. It sounds too good to be true, right? Welcome to the world of Air Lift Performance.

This high-performance threaded body kit has been specifically designed for the new VW Beetle Turbo model, giving you the ability to adjust the ride height even while on the move. At the touch of a button you can lower your VW up to 5.8-inches from stock height on the front and rear axle! The result is a car that’s not only super-cool to look at, but also boasts significantly improved suspension performance while maintaining total practicality on the street.

Air Lift has stepped up the air suspension game with their new threaded bag-over body style air strut. The mono-tube struts offer 30-level damping adjustment. This allows you to change the damper settings from soft through to a stiff performance set-up a using the convenient damping adjuster. Each strut features a threaded body allowing you to perfectly setup the vehicle by changing the position of the lower mount on the strut. Furthermore, these high-tech struts are topped off with adjustable camber plates carved from T-6061 aircraft aluminum that allow the camber to be adjusted up to 3 degrees for track use or that perfect wheel fitment.

For the rear, Air Lift Performance has employed the use of double bellow bags along with brackets that simply bolt on to the chassis – no cutting is required. Couple Air Lift’s smooth riding bag system with the ingenious damping set-up and the result is nothing short of incredible.

Installation is simple with detailed instruction manuals supplied by Air Lift Performance’s engineering team. 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 if you are looking for the ultimate low look, then some frame modifications and fabrication skill will be required.
