The A6 C5 chassis is probably one of the most diverse platforms ever offered by Audi. This chassis encompasses everything, from the utility-based All Road to the fire breathing RS6 luxury hot rod. With so many different models included in the line up, Audi had to make sure they included everything for everyone. Our only question is: did they really have to include that giant wheel gap?
Fortunately for us, they did decide to give the A6 the ground clearance of a mid-size pickup, and fortunately for you, we threw out that idea and put together a killer air suspension to give your Audi the ground-hugging stance it deserves. However, we were not satisfied with just going low. We wanted to go low without the compromises that you have to endure by using more conventional lowering methods. Sure, coil springs and coilovers will get you low, but do you really want to scrape up your ride everywhere you go, or end up with a stiff back from driving your luxury car? Of course not. That’s why the Air Lift Performance team of engineers designed this kit to not only go low, but to give you excellent ride quality AND the ability to carve corners that Audi never imagined would be possible!
To start things off, the front monotube threaded body shock is topped off with a smooth riding double-bellow air spring to allow the front end to drop 4.25″ from stock with the push of a button. Thirty different levels of damping will give you the option of a luxury-smooth ride or race-car-stiff and everything in between with just a simple twist of the knob. Red anodized end-caps keep the rubber air spring connected to the black, chromed shock bodies.
For the rear, a progressive rate sleeve style air spring was mounted to a 30-way adjustable, threaded body, monotube shock allowing the rear to become 5.98″ closer to the pavement. Since the front shocks turned out so well, we decided to use the same recipe for the rear, utilizing the same sexy red end-caps mated to black chromed shocks. Coupled with the front suspension, this is the lowest, best performing, no-compromise suspension you can put on your A6/C5.
Detailed installation instructions will help you to get your Audi slammed within a few short hours. If you have the ability to wire a stereo and swap out suspension parts, you should have no problem installing this air suspension system. If you do 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 to market the most durable air suspension possible, 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 deg F to 150 deg F. Couple this test lab work with thousands of miles of on-road testing—not to mention the one-year manufacturer’s warranty—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 worrying about scraping your ride? Ditch the springs, and get to an entire new level of low.
