Air Lift Performance Announces Their Latest Kit: Complete Air Suspension for the Honda S2000

This world needs more 2 seat, rear-wheel-drive, high performance convertibles. In a land of 4-door sedans, where have all the fun, exciting cars gone?

In 1999, Honda had the perfect formula to bring excitement back to driving in the S2000. It features a smooth high-revving 2 liter engine, 50/50 weight distribution, and the option to go topless. What a perfect equation for hair blowing, grin inducing driving elation! However, Air Lift Performance engineers like nothing more than to take a great car and make it ride better, handle better, and flat out even more fun to drive. They created the latest Performance Series air suspension kit for the Honda S2000 to do just that.

 

For starters, in the front - a progressive rate sleeve style air spring is mated to a 30-level adjustable, threaded body, monotube shock to handle height and damping duties. T6061 aluminum upper mounts, immersed in a sexy red anodized hue, house high-quality spherical bearings for smooth operation. All of this coupled together, gives you a full 4 inch drop from factory

To get the rear 4.7 inches below stock, Air Lift Performance engineers followed the same path as the front. The progressive rate air springs offer a smooth comfortable ride, while the monotube shocks help to dissipate heat quickly. Also, remote damping adjusters allow you to change your suspension setting with ease.

 

It’s not all about fancy parts and a show-stopping stance, though.  This suspension was designed on the race track with handling performance that leads the way in development.  Not only will the air springs give you a smooth, progressive spring rate under hard driving, but the 30 levels of damping adjustment allow you to fine-tune the ride, and give you the handling you are looking for.  You can go from a smooth, comfortable ride to race-car-stiff handling with the twist of the knob.  What does this mean, exactly?  It means you can have a comfortable drive to the track, change a couple of settings, and carve corners with the best of them.  It also means that steep driveways and speed bumps will no longer make you cringe.  With the push of a button, you can raise the car to factory height and clear pretty much any obstacle that comes along.

Every Air Lift Performance kit comes with detailed instructions a get your Honda S2000 slammed within a few short hours.  If you have the ability to wire a stereo or swap out suspension parts, you should have no problem installing this air suspension kit.  If you do run into a snag with installation, 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 1 million cycles (equivalent to approximately 100,000 miles) on our 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—and 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 and having to worry about scraping your ride?  Ditch the springs and get to an entire new level of low.

    ^this! this is exactly what I’ve wanted to start seeing from companies making air bag systems. I’m sick and tired of hearing the argument about whether bags are for the track or not (I’m in the I’m not sure camp so i stick with coils.. for now) so i am happy that they are starting to actually talk about the kind of testing that they are doing. That being said…

    From http://www.apracing.com/Info.aspx?InfoID=36&ProductID=976
    “Under racing conditions disc bulk temperatures should normally be maintained in the range 400°C to 600°C for best performance.”
    I’m curious if maybe 150 F is a little low for their testing requirements, what were the other testing environmental variables? Maybe we could get a white paper from their testing? 

    In the end tho, they are more than likely have to put their money where their mouth is and run at least one season in some sort of organized racing series to convince people that they are acceptable for the track. From the mind set of someone who mainly tracks their car, I find it hard to justify changing my suspension to airbags when they are still relatively untested for regular track use. This counts doubly so for a component that if it fails could cause immediate loss of control and possible further damage to my car. Its a matter of risk management, i can figure out what the risk level of a coil spring is and i can understand its MTBF (mean time between failures) and as such i can prepare a maintenance schedule where the parts are inspected and/or replaced at certain intervals.

    In the end I’m just hoping to provide some constructive feedback and encouragement towards air lift. keep up the good work, but don’t rest on your laurels. some of us want to see you push it even further. after all you really end the argument once you’ve won a championship for a racing series.

    Whenever I read something like this, it makes me even less inclined to purchase.

  • Miles hardy

    LOADS of race cars use this stuff, oh wait, no they don’t – static drop only.

    Miles hardy Very racing oriented suspension — check out Cody Miles.

    DP84 Miles hardy  I’ve seen the bags v’s coils videos etc… but if they were actually that good you’d see them on formula cars etc… also mountain bikes use air suspension as a way to save weight, but performace is still way higher with a traditional coil-over system. Rally once again, most important component for mechanical grip is the sus, they all use coil-overs – think my point may be made.

    funny, i swear i wrote a post yesterday….

    Miles hardy DP84 – It’s not as if Formula Cars are using the same coilovers that enthusiasts purchase for their road cars. The fact that pros use high-end race coilovers does not negate the fact that air suspension can be effectively utilized in sporty enthusiast applications where the car will be used on winding mountain roads and enthusiast track days.

    @Mike – I can see the post in our backend but for some reason it’s not displaying here in the livefyre feed. There’s a chance that, due to the length of the post, it has gotten stuck in the anti-spam filter.
