LIFT WHEN YOU NEED IT.
AIR CUP LIFT SYSTEM
A perfect combination between airride and coilovers. With air cup suspension you keep the ride quality and performance of your coilovers and have the ability to raise your car with the push of a button. A great system for show, track, drift or daily driven cars.AIR CUP LIFT SYSTEMA perfect combination between airride and coilovers.

HOW DOES IT WORK?
It is basically an air cylinder on top of your coilover. Normally you will drive low, without the cups pressurized. Whenever you need to pass an obstacle, such as a speed bump or a driveway, you can apply pressure to the cups and it will raise your car with 50mm.
The air cup lift system will fit on 90% of any brand coilovers. Your coilover must meet a certain dimensional requirement, otherwise the system will not fit.
This kit includes everything you need to install the air cup lift system:
• 2 air cups
• 10 meters airline
• 12v 3-way valve + switch and 5 meters electricity wire
• Complete VIAIR compressor kit with 2 gallon tank.
• Connecting material
2 year warranty on the air cups.
1 year warranty on the compressor setup, covered by the manufacturer: VIAIR.
Stanceparts Front Kit
The air cups will fit any brand coilovers, as long as they meet the requirements.
Make sure the dimensions match your coilover, we strongly recommend to measure with a caliper.
• The outer diameter must be less than 99mm.
• The inner diameter must be 61 mm or more.
• Measure the thickest part of the coilover shaft, available for coilover shaft diameters: 12,5mm, 14mm, 15mm, 16mm, 18mm, 20mm and 22mm.
The air cup lift system will only fit on linear springs, it will not fit on ''shaped'' springs as shown in the figure. If you have ''shaped'' springs, it's most times possible to install linear springs.
High spring rates
If you're using extreme high spring rates, higher than the original rates that came with your coilovers, then it's possible that you can't use the full 50mm lift from the air cups. Due to the extreme high spring rates, the weight of the car won't compress the springs and damper enough to create a stroke for the air cups to lift. This can be solved by using helper springs.
• The diameter of the air cup is 120 mm.
• The fitting is 17mm.
The air cup is only 20mm thick in the lowest position. Depending on your coilovers and vehicle, the air cups will take up a certain space. In most cases this is 20 to 30mm. If you have enough travel left on your coilovers to lower it, it won't be a problem. If not, you can install shorter springs to compensate this.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
The air cup is mounted on the top of the spring and just act like a spacer. When you put pressure on system, the air cup will expand and the car will raise with 50mm. The air cup lift system does not affect the ride quality and performance of your coilovers.
• Max total car weight: 2000 kg / 4400 lbs (or max axle weight: 1300 kg / 2850 lbs)
