Function and Form Type 5 Air Struts for the 2017+ Volkswagen Tiguan round out our lineup of performance suspension products. Our line of air struts allow drivers to achieve that ultimate show look when parked for the local meets, yet still, deliver a smooth ride for cruising down the freeway on the way home. Easily adjust the ride height with pre-sets. Pair with our pressure or other sensor-based air management systems.
