Nothing quite says luxury like a sleek, big-body Lexus slammed to the ground. Boasting California walnut on the interior and chrome trim on the exterior, the LS400 represents all the best elements of 90s VIP motoring. The only thing it needed to make it even better was a low show stance, courtesy of Air Lift Performance.

In order to drop the Lexus 3.5” from stock in front, Air Lift Performance paired their smooth-riding, double-bellow bags with monotube dampers, which offer 30 levels of adjustability. This allows the damper to be set anywhere from super soft all the way up to a stiff performance setup, all with the convenient twist of the damping adjustment knob.

For the rear, Air Lift Performance dropped the Lexus 4.9” from stock, using a double-bellows spring with a separate shock. These drops are not limited by the shocks, in case chassis modifications have been done to go even lower. No cutting or body modification is required to install the Air Lift Performance kit. Each strut also features a threaded body, which allows the position of the lower mount on the strut to be changed and perfectly set up the vehicle.

The Lexus LS400 (1989-2000) threaded-body kit is available with a range of Air Lift Performance air-management options, including the innovative 3H height + pressure sensing system. Air Lift Performance used a state-of-the-art 32-bit processor and advanced height + pressure algorithms, then paired them with a full color controller, complete with built-in Bluetooth connectivity, in order to make 3H the most advanced air management system on the market.

At the push of a button, this kit delivers exceptional ride quality for the LS400 platform, clearing even the biggest road obstacles and steepest driveways is a breeze. There are now no more wrenches needed and no need to wrestle around with coils to get that lowered look. Now, all you have to do is tap a preset and your Lexus is transformed with a sophisticated, lowered stance. Installation is made simple with Air Lift Performance’s detailed instruction manuals. Anyone with the skill to wire a stereo and to swap suspension parts can have their car on the ground in only a matter of hours. Basic hand tools are the only things necessary to complete the job. Keep in mind that if you are looking for the ultimate low look, some modifications and fabrication will be required.

Air Lift Performance tests all the components of their kits to 1 million cycles (approximately 100,000 miles) on a hydraulic test rig, at temperatures from -30° F to 150° F. This test lab work, coupled with thousands of miles of on-road testing, not to mention a one-year manufacturer’s warranty and Air Lift’s exceptional customer service department, gives you a kit that you know you can count on to handle whatever the road throws down.
