Ramp Solution: Airlift Suspension System for Porsche 911 and Audi R8

Ramp Solution: Airlift Suspension System for Porsche 911 and Audi R8

If you've ever driven a lowered sports car - or any lowered car for that matter- then at some point you will have definitely faced a problem 'negotiating' obstacles such as car park ramps, speed humps, high curbs etc. Cargraphic, a specialized Porsche tuner, has come up with a solution for this problem in the form of the "Airlift Suspension System". Available for the Porsche 996/997 and in the near future, the Audi R8, patented automatic level control system enables the car's front suspension to rise by 55mm.

As with other systems of this sort, the "Airlift Suspension" will automatically lower the car back down to normal ride height once it has reached a speed of 50 km/h (31mph).

However, one unique feature of the suspension system is that in the Porsche 911, it can work with the PASM (Porsche Active Suspension Management). The Cargraphic Airlift Suspension is available in 2 versions, a complete kit that includes BILSTEIN B16 suspension or as an upgrade kit for OE coil over suspensions
