Introducing the world's most advanced
air suspension system for the Volkswagen T5.

  • Unique articulating end cap.
    Uses the OE bearing and top mount while allowing a smooth articulation. This eliminates the additional noise associated with spherical bearing mounts.
  • Double bellow air springs
    A double bellow air spring allows for a progressive rate, and the multi-ply rubber flex members are a long tried and tested design.
  • Preset height adjustable. 
    Allows the driving pressure to be set at 9 different positions for optimal corner weights and stance. Adjustment is made using circlip grooves, meaning the damper capacity can be greater than a threaded body design.
  • British dampers, for British roads. 
    The damping has been extensively designed to suit the weight of the T5, the rate of the air spring and the roads they are driven on. Twin tube dampers offer a robust, reliable and highly tunable setup with superior noise isolation over monotube designs.
    The black zinc plated casing is wider than stock, giving a greater fluid volume and larger piston diameter to offer a beautifully smooth yet firm and precise ride, without the harshness found with most coilover systems.
  • Adjustable and flexible. 
    32 point adjustable damping means the suspension can be calibrated for a wide range of vehicle and wheel weights as well as personal preferences.
  • No Compromise.
    Nothing has been added or taken away for the sake of it. We have slimmed down the ancilliary tabs to just those that are necessary in order to reduce unsprung weight. 
    To ensure a perfect fitment, a large amount of travel and maximum fluid volume inside the damper, the end caps are machined from billet steel and welded to the casing. This forms an integral part of the damper.

The Personal Touch.

While many of the parts are CNC machined, the final touches are made manually by highly skilled engineers.

This ensures each component goes through rigorous inspection and scrutineering before final assembly. 

The damping is adjustable, however it is a fairly small window of adjustment for fine tuning. We have set the damping up as close as possible to "perfect", but sometimes fine tuning a damper is more of a personal thing.

Truly tuneable rear system.

The rear system can be supplied with or without uprated dampers, depending on personal preference.

The dampers we have chosen for the rear kit are a monotube design made by Eibach. The rear damper needs less travel and is narrower, yet needs to cope with a wide variety of loading. The monotube design offers this adaptability as well as offering good noise isolation via the high quality rubber bushes. 
The air springs have been set up to suit stock dampers as much as possible, so adding this is optional, yet it's a great upgrade for performance. 

Another option is our unique adjustable accumulation system which offers a variable "swept" volume of air inside the system. This allows the user to alter the spring frequency to switch between comfort and sport, this is also useful when altering the load in the back of the vehicle.

A place for everything.

Another Intermotiv exclusive offering, a T5 specific tank, which has been designed to to mount underneath the van.

The systems are of course available with a full choice of tanks for those who might want to mount them inside, however we have found that the majority of T5 owners would like to maximise the available interior space. Because of this the underslung tank is supplied as standard with this kit. The tank can be mounted underneath the vehicle without getting in the way of any standard components.

The AutoPilot V2 System from Air Lift Performance

One touch ride height, fully programmable. The system can be set to adjust automatically on start up.

Adjust springs individually, in pairs or all at once.

Auto leak detection will monitor and adjust pressures automatically, and warn you of problems.

Tuning features allow you to set exact requirements for each spring for a perfect height and minimal fuss.

Complete with control panel, ECU, pressure transducers, solenoid valves and all other components. Just one wire to the dash!

Tailored For You

Packages can be built to suit your individual requirements.  You can select a different compressor package or tank to suit your needs.

Air Line Size

Standard kits come with 1/4in air lines, these are by no means slow, but on larger/heavier vehicles you will find the bags inflate faster with 3/8in air lines.  Adding 3/8in lines to a small car can be fun in that it's very quick, but beware that the management system may become less accurate in doing so. 

Air Tanks

The bigger the tank, the more air you have to play with.  But check your available space first as some of the larger tanks won't fit in some cars!  A larger tank will often benefit from a larger (or second) compressor to cope with the increased volume it has to fill.

Compressors

The bigger the compressor, the faster your tank will refill.  Some example fill rates are below.  Opt for a dual compressor system to really maximise your system.
