The term “luxury hatchback” might not appear to be a car that demands to be modified…but when you see the clean, crisp lines of the Volvo C30, it just begs to be slammed on the pavement after some tasteful mods. Since it comes with a turbo-charged five-cylinder, the C30 is no slouch on the street, either. Maybe you have been wanting to lower your Volvo, but you don’t want to give up your luxury ride quality, and you want to take advantage of that turbo goodness and lightweight body structure. Look no further—Air Lift Performance offers the best all-around suspension choice. With the simple push of a button and the twist of a damping knob, you can adjust your ride height and stiffness from luxury-smooth to racetrack-ready.
Up front, a double-bellow air spring is mated with a 30-level damping, adjustable monotube strut, giving you the formula for excellent performance handling. The threaded body strut allows you to adjust the height of the lower mount, giving you almost endless ride height possibilities. Top all this off with adjustable camber plates made out of T6061, slathered in a sexy red hue, and you are ready to hit the show field, road course, and every road in between.
In the rear, a double-bellow air spring takes the place of a traditional coil spring, allowing you to choose the lowered height you crave. To help you go as low as possible, we toss aside the factory lower control arms in favor of our custom tubular lower arms. These arms are treated to a show-quality, black powder-coat finish, and even have provisions for mounting your sway bar. To complement the other suspension goodies, we replace the rear shocks with 30 levels of damping, adjustable monotube units that help to fine-tune ride quality and handling.
Installation is a breeze with Air Lift Performance’s detailed instruction manuals! If you have the skill to wire a stereo or swap suspension components, then 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 installation.
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.

Ditch those coils and get to a new level of low!
