Air Lift Performance 3H combines pressure-based control with ride-height sensing technology. While both types of air management have been utilized before, this is the first product to harness the benefits of both sytems – instantly improving suspension control, performance, and vehicle ride flexibility.


Does the wheel gap on your new Golf R make you cringe, but you don’t want to sacrifice ride quality and handling?  Well, we understand that you bought your R because you crave a high-performance, well-handling machine.  We also understand that you want to modify your ride without compromise.

That’s why Air Lift Performance developed the bag-over style, threaded body strut kit.  Not only does this monotube strut offer you a whole new world of adjustment—by simply changing the height of the lower strut mount—but it is also has 30 levels of damping adjustment to really help you conquer the track.  To help you reduce your lap times even further, we have included adjustable camber plates that utilize a high-quality spherical bearing.  This kit also retains the use of the front sway bar, so you no longer need to sacrifice handling to go low!

In the rear, we use double-bellows bags, along with brackets that simply bolt on to the chassis—no cutting required!  When you couple our smooth-riding bags with our 30-way damping adjustable shocks, you get the kind of drop, improved handling, and superb ride quality you are looking for out of your Golf R.

By now, you have figured out what you can handle with Air Lift Performance parts…but what about going low?  With the proper frame modifications, you can expect a 5.8-inch drop from the sky-high factory ride height, from both the front and rear of the car. This kit will make all things possible for your ride, while making it impossible for your neighbor’s cat to hide out underneath it.

Everyone at Air Lift Performance is seriously addicted to the thrill of a corner taken at high-speed and going as low as the ground will allow. Rest assured: your kit has been track-tested and tuned to give you the best handling experience as possible, and has been engineered to give you a ground-smothering stance.

Still thinking about using coilovers to go low with your Golf R?  Coilover suspension simply cannot compare with the versatility of air. With our infinitely adjustable ride height, no longer do you need to worry about scraping against driveway entrances or speed bumps as you enjoy your lowered car.  With the push of a button, you can adjust your ride height; no more using a wrench to change your car’s look or usability.  Quit stressing about the punishing ride that goes with many conventional suspension choices—with Air Lift Performance air springs, you can literally be riding on air.

Installation is simple with Air Lift Performance’s detailed instruction manuals. If you have the skill to wire a stereo or swap suspension components, then you can have your car on the ground in a matter of hours.  Only basic hand tools are necessary to complete installation.  Keep in mind, however: if you are looking for the ultimate in low, frame modifications will require some fabrication skills.

As the leader in air suspension products for over 60 years, Air Lift is committed to delivering quality parts that last. To ensure longevity for the customer, the key suspension components have been tested on a durability rig for over one million cycles, which equates to 100,000 miles. With a one-year, unlimited-mileage warranty—not to mention the Air Lift reputation for great customer service and technical support—you can purchase this kit with peace of mind.  Ditch those coils and get yourself down!
