Description

When Volkswagen needed a successor to the wildly popular Beetle in the 70,s they developed their first water-cooled, front-wheel-drive chassis called the MK1. This platform was perfect for the gas-rationed era, and was looked upon as nothing more than cheap daily transportation.

Fast-forward 30 years, and the MK1 platform has become the “hot rod” of the VW world. This chassis is highly sought after for everything from restorations to motor swaps—all the way to all-out race car builds. I am sure VW never dreamed their little economy car would be part of such a customizing movement!

The first thing you may notice when checking out a MK1 is the huge amount of wheel gap, which we find completely unacceptable. Sure you can help that issue with a set of lowering coils or coilovers, but do you really want to sacrifice ride quality just to go low? Air Lift Performance has recognized the desire to slam this car and has the developed the best all-around suspension on the market. Now you can a have a lowered stance, killer handling, and amazing ride quality—all in one suspension package.

After all, what vehicle doesn’t look better with a 5-inch drop up front? To achieve this much drop in elevation, the engineers at Air Lift Performance chose a progressive-rate, sleeve-style air spring mounted atop a black, powder-coated threaded body strut that replaces the OEM setup. This combination not only allows you to adjust the height with the air spring, but also allows you to change the length of the strut by adjusting the lower mount position, so you can really fine-tune the ride height you desire. Featuring adjustable camber plates carved out of T6061 red anodized aluminum, and 30 different levels of damping, this suspension will give you enough adjustments to turn your MK1 into a corner carver—not just a hard parker.

We used the same style of progressive-rate springs in the rear kit, giving you that smooth ride for daily use, and 30 levels of damping adjustment when it’s time to hit the track. The sexy, black chromed steel shock bodies—coupled with the bright red anodized end caps and lock rings—add some nice flair to the undercarriage of your MK1. All of this adds up to 4.9 inchesof drop from stock height.

Detailed instructions will help you to have your VW slammed within a few short hours. If you have the ability to wire a stereo or swap out suspension parts, then you should have no problem installing this air suspension. If you do happen to run into a snag, the Air Lift Performance tech support team is top-notch, and can walk you through any questions you may have.

In order to bring the most durable air suspension possible to the market, Air Lift Performance tortured the components of this kit to one million cycles (equal to approximately 100,000 miles) on their hydraulic test rig at temperatures from -30 to 150 degrees Fahrenheit. Couple this test lab work with thousands of miles of on-road testing—not to mention the one-year manufacturer’s warranty—and this is a kit you can count on to handle whatever the road throws down!

Isn’t it time you had the option of getting a killer lowered look without giving up ride quality or having to worry about scraping your ride? Ditch the springs and get to an entire new level of low.

Airlift V2 Autopilot :

The sleek V2 controller is protected in a rugged, rubberized coating to help protect against the occasional drops and scratches. Display readout shows, individual corner air pressure and tank pressure. You can select your pressures to be displayed in PSI, or for our friends across the pond, we now have an option for BAR!! To give you the ultimate in personalization of your system we have loaded the multi-color display with 512 color combinations! Believe it or not all of this technology fits in the palm of your hand and only takes one wire to connect to your wire harness.

Not only does the V2 give you 8 different presets to tailor to your ride heights needs, but it also “learns” your vehicle to provide incredible accuracy with every push of the button. As you roll low, the V2 will constantly monitor your pressures and adjust accordingly to your presets. V2 also allows you to control your system manually, for the ultimate in independent 4 corner adjustment. With the raise on start feature, you won’t even have to touch the controller! Fully laid out? Raise to your ride height as soon as you turn on your ride and you’re ready to go.

You want diagnostics? Well V2 has diagnostics! With a touch of a button you can check compressor performance and compressor run times. The system will also alert you to a leak, a low pressure situation, communication failure or if there is something wrong with your valve.

Installation could not be easier! Mount your components, hook up 3 wires, plug in the OEM quality harness and you are ready to go. The detailed instruction manual will take you through the calibration and ride height preset process. Each V2 is 100% function and leak tested at the factory after assembly, so you can cruise the streets in confidence!
