This Mk5/Mk6 air suspension kit gives you the ability to adjust the ride height of your car while on the move. At the touch of a button you can lower your VW up to 147mm – that’s a massive 5.8-inches! The result is a car that’s not only super-cool to look at, but significantly improved suspension performance while keeping your VW’s practicality.

Air Lift has stepped up the air suspension game with their new threaded body, bag-over style air strut. The mono-tube struts offer 30-way on-car damping adjustment. This allows you to change the damper settings from soft through to a stiff performance set-up at a convenient twist of the damping adjuster. Furthermore, each strut features a threaded body allowing you to perfectly setup the vehicle by changing the position of the lower mount on the strut.

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.
