I live outside the USA. Why can't I order through the website?

With all the credit card fraud today, ANY order outside the US must be called in and paid for by bank transfer.

The cost of shipping this kit to the UK is extremely high, is there any options?

Absolutely. After paying by bank transfer, we can ship your kit through UPS to a ship forwarding company of your choosing in the US. They would then take it from there and ship it to you. Arrangements with the forwarding company would be your respondsibility.

How long does it take to install the Audi A8 Air Suspension Conversion Kit?

You should figure between 4-5 hours times the shops labor rate, but this can vary greatly depending on the shop.

Why does it say "spring and strut color may vary"?

Due to occasional rush orders, some of the batches of springs we get from Eibach are not powder coated, therefore they maybe black in color rather than red.

Will the car sit lower than it did with the air?

No, all of our kits are designed to be at regular factory ride height. If your vehicle has adjustable settings, the height should be in the middle.

Reviewer: Josh W. from Kansas City ,KS  
INCREDIBLE! My A8 drives like a dream and I didn't even have to sell a kidney! lol. If you have an Audi A8 with an air suspension problem, don't waist your money on a money pit system. Do a conversion from American Air Suspension and never look back.

5 of 5 I wished I would have known about this before! April 20, 2015
Reviewer: Barry F. from TECUMSEH,OK.  
I wished I would have known about this conversion thing before I let my mechanic throw several thousand dollars of my money, at the air suspension on my A8. He clearly doesn't know how this system works and apparently was just guessing. After driving my car with the conversion installed, I finally feel like I can depend on my car again. Thanks American Air Suspension!
