With the classic American rear-wheel drive platform pretty much extinct, we applaud everyone over at Chrysler for keeping the LX platform alive! It’s hard to beat a full-size, rear-wheel drive car, especially when it’s equipped with the classic Hemi V-8. As good as the LX platform is, we think the stance leaves a lot to be desired. With that in mind, we sharpened our pencils and set out to design the lowest, bolt-on, adjustable suspension possible. Low is certainly a cool statement, but “low” can be achieved in many different ways—and we decided to do it the RIGHT way. What is the “right” way, you ask? Well, not only did we engineer our kit to have a ground-hugging stance, but we designed it to enhance performance handling and improve ride quality. Try getting all of that out of a set of lowering springs or coilovers!
Our front kit features a threaded body monotube shock, with 30 levels of damping adjustment, topped off with a smooth-riding, double-bellow air spring. The struts look just as good as they perform, from the black chromed steel shock bodies to the bright red anodized air spring end caps, all attached to an anodized upper mount with a high-quality monoball bearing. Put this all together, and you can drop the front of your LX 4.88 inches from that unsightly OEM ride height.
For the rear, we tossed out the factory coil spring in favor of our double-bellow air spring, allowing you to drop 6.69 inches from the stock height. To make sure your rear end isn’t bouncing down the road, we use a 30-level damping, monotube, threaded body shock to complement the front shock.
As cool as all this sounds, what does it mean? No more sacrificing ride quality to get your car low, and losing any type of load-carrying capabilities in the process. Now, you can have a nice ride while getting the stance you really want. Hauling a heavy load, or taking all of your friends out for a night on the town? With lowered coils, you would be scraping everywhere you tried to go—but with an Air Lift Performance kit, now you can just push a button and level your vehicle almost instantly.
Feel like hitting the track or your favorite twisty road? We have spent countless hours at the track, fine-tuning our suspensions to give you the best handling possible. With a twist of the damping knob, you can go from a smooth street ride to a race-car-like stiffness that will have you grinning when you take your first curve at top speed.
Installation is simple with Air Lift Performance’s detailed instruction manuals. If you have the skill to wire a stereo or swap suspension components, you can have your car on the ground or tearing up your favorite road course in a matter of hours. Only basic hand tools are necessary to complete the job.
As the leader in air suspension products for over 60 years, Air Lift is committed to delivering quality parts that last. To ensure longevity for the customer, the key suspension components have been tested on a durability rig for over one million cycles, which equates to 100,000 miles. With a one-year, unlimited-mileage warrant—not to mention the Air Lift reputation for great customer service and technical support—you can purchase this kit with peace of mind. Ditch those coils and get to a new level of low!
