Our next modification is to install an airlift suspension system on this awesome Mustang. The owner choose to go with Air Lift Performance which is the performance division of Air Lift Company. They have been engineering and manufacturing air suspension products since 1949! We installed the 3P Kit and set it up to automatically go to a preset height on remote start. The customer chose a height that would be his normal (albeit lower than the original normal) ride height. That way we could align the suspension for best performance and tire wear.

Here are all the pieces that come in the kit.

Air Lift Kit

Starting in the front of the car we take out the front strut and install the Air Lift strut and air bag. The pieces are standard fitting components and don’t require any modification. Simply unbolt the stock struts and then bolt the new ones in.

Here is a side by side comparison of the stock vs Air Lift

Now, on to the rear. Out with the stock and in with the Air Lift. The rear is a little more work in that you have to loosen the rear subframe to get the stock springs out. As with the front, all components bolt into the stock mounting positions.

Now the fun begins. The rest of the system (air tank, air distribution block etc.) can be mounted in the different ways depending on your preference.
Here is where we put the compressor and tank. We spun the inflate kit around and fit the components in. The air distribution fit well on the side behind trim panel. Buff is very particular how he runs cables, hoses and wires.
