LANSING, Mich. - Air Lift Performance is offering an air suspension kit for 2007-2015 Mini Cooper R55/56/57 models that equip the sporty subcompact with superior handling and ride quality for exceptional performance on the street and the track.

As the leader in high-performance air suspension systems, Air Lift Performance produces a kit for the small but powerful Mini Cooper that features superior quality components that not only allow for the desired ride height to clear most obstacles, but create a super smooth ride that boosts driving enjoyment.

"We designed this air suspension kit with the race track in mind, focusing on creating the optimal combination of handling and ride quality," said Air Lift Performance Marketing Manager Devin Pringle. "It also allows for exceptional comfort during day-to-day driving with its fully adjustable damping that can be easily fine-tuned by changing a couple of settings."

To create a slammed stance in the front, the kit replaces the factory struts with Air Lift Performance's threaded-body, monotube, 30-way adjustable struts, partnered with double-bellows air springs that help smooth the ride over rough roads. A set of T6061 red-anodized camber plates and high-quality spherical bearings are added to enable highly responsive and precise steering that's required for an exceptional competitive driving experience. The front-end kit allows for a 4.0" drop from factory ride height for a low profile that is high style.

The setup in the rear is similar, using a progressive-rate, sleeve-style air spring mounted to a 30-way damping adjustable shock. Also mirroring the front, T6061 aluminum upper mounts are used with spherical bearings to generate curve-hugging handling and performance. The rear kit achieves a 4.9" drop from stock that results in a show-stopping race track stance.

Installation of the air suspension can be accomplished in a few hours with basic hand tools and Air Lift's detailed instructions. If you can wire a stereo, you can install one of Air Lift's air suspension kits. All Air Lift Performance parts are engineered with reliability in mind. They are put through demanding on-road testing and 1 million cycles of rigorous durability rig testing. The company stands behind the quality of its products with a one-year, unlimited-mileage warranty, and superior technical support and well-informed customer service specialists.
