Air Lift uses 30-way adjustable, monotube struts (with a serious range of damping adjustment) that have been specially tuned to match the air springs. Monotube construction is the preferred choice in racing, and for us as well, considering its sensitivity to small inputs as well as its great ability to shed heat when pushed to the limit. The 30 clicks of adjustment aren’t just for fun, but allow users to dial in their preferred handling feel or desired ride quality. The range goes from super-stiff to exceptionally soft, adjusting rebound and compression together. The struts weigh considerably less than the coil spring parts you remove, reducing unsprung weight—a benefit to both ride control and handling.
Another notable feature is the presence of adjustable camber plates in front. This allows easy, precise adjustment of the camber angle, making quick work of the alignment process for road or track. These plates are packed with high-quality, Japanese-manufactured pillow ball bearings for long life and low noise.
These high-rate springs create a stable platform for aggressive track driving, while providing a level of comfort not typically found with lowered suspensions.
Every kit comes with a detailed instruction manual to guide you through all the steps. If you can install suspension and wire a stereo, you have the skills necessary for the job.
