BMW 3-series Compact+Z3 bolt-on Airlift Performance air suspension


BMW 3-series Compact, Z3, Z3M E36 bolt-on Airlift Performance air suspension


Up front, we start with our monotube, threaded body strut, partnered with our smooth-riding, double-bellow air spring. Not only can you change the height of the car by increasing or decreasing air pressure, but since the strut body is threaded, you can change the height of the strut simply by spinning the lower mount up or down. To add even more adjustability, these struts have 30 different levels of damping, so you can go from a smooth street ride to race-car-like stiffness with the twist of a knob. To top it all off, we include adjustable caster/camber plates, made out of T6061 aluminum and anodized red, for a show-stopping appearance and excellent race track adjustability.
For the rear, we simply replace the factory coil spring with a double-bellows air spring, giving you a 5.6-inch drop. To keep the rear from bouncing down the road, we use 30-level damping adjustable, monotube, threaded body shocks. With black chromed shock bodies and bright red accents, these shocks look just as sharp as they function.
Installation is simple with Air Lift Performance’s detailed instruction manuals; if you have the skill to wire a stereo and swap suspension components, you can have your car on the ground—or tearing up your favorite road course—in a matter of hours. Only basic hand tools are necessary to complete installation.
