When you purchase a BMW, there are a few things you expect. From the
infamous kidney grill to the refined interior–as well as the outstanding
detail to luxury and performance–this German automaker has striven to
give you the ultimate automotive experience. While we do agree that
BMW builds amazing cars, we do have one question: why, oh why, is there
so much wheel gap?!
To reduce the front wheel gap by 4.84”, we choose a smooth-riding,
adjustable, double-bellow air spring mounted to a monotube threaded body
strut. Not only can you adjust the height of the vehicle with the
strut, but you also have 30 different levels of damping adjustment to
really tune your ride quality and performance–depending on if you are on
the road or headed to the track.
For the rear, we took a different approach than most air suspension
companies. We engineered a complete control arm (along with toe links)
to not only give you maximum drop and a lower PSI when you are at ride
height, but also to help you keep the tires planted when a little more
spirited driving is in order. Sounds fancy, but what exactly does that
mean? It means you can run less air pressure in the bag to achieve your
desired ride height, which equates to a much better ride quality and
We have replaced the OEM coil spring with one of our double-bellow
air springs, and added a monotube, 30-level-adjustable, threaded body
shock to handle the damping duties. Total overall drop is 5.8″ from
stock, giving you the drop that is sure to get you noticed on the street
as well as the show field. All this is to ensure you have the best
overall driving experience from your Bimmer.
So you may be thinking, that this is all well and good for the show
crowd, but what if you want to push your BMW to its handling limits?
Will air really provide the corner-carving ability you crave? The
answer is a simple YES. We have spent countless hours on the track to
give you a suspension that can handle any road course or curvy road you
may encounter. You can expect quicker steering response and excellent
roll control, thanks to our progressive rate air springs and monotube
30-way dampers. Best of all, our suspension components are compatible
with other chassis upgrades to allow you to put together the ultimate
We offer detailed installation instructions to help you to have your
