Is Your Check Suspension Light On?
Any one of these items could be the cause:
Air Spring: This is the number one cause of all air suspension leaks. All of your air springs were installed at the same time and they all go bad at about the same rate. If one is leaking, the others can't be far behind. For a proper repair, all of them need to be replaced at the same time.
Compressor/Air Pump: When your air suspension started leaking, your compressor/air pump started working harder to try to keep the system inflated. As the air system leaked more, it worked even harder. The compressor in your air suspension was not designed to work that hard. By the time your air suspension leaked down completely, your compressor had failed. Buying air struts and taking the time to install them only to find out you still need to replace your compressor can be very frustrating and expensive.
Dryer: Once your air suspension starts leaking, there will be moisture in the system. Moisture damages the air suspension from the inside. You will have to replace the dryer to eliminate the moisture and stop this damage.
O-rings: Although they are the least expensive parts of the air suspension, they are responsible for maintaining the seal where all the air lines connect. If you do any work on your air suspension, be sure to replace the O-rings.
Ride Height Sensor: Chances are your vehicle has 100,000 miles on it, maybe more. The ride height sensor is a moving part, and like all moving parts, they will eventually wear out.
Solenoid: The solenoid regulates the air pressure for each air spring. Solenoids start to leak as they wear out causing your suspension to sag or to lean. This will cause the ride height sensor to send a signal to activate the compressor in an attempt to inflate the air suspension and level out the vehicle. This excessive work load will eventually lead to total failure of the compressor.
How Do I Know If My Air Suspension Is Failing?
The most common symptom of a leaking or failed air suspension is a sagging rear end or the entire vehicle is squatting down like the vehicles pictured below. Other clues include your air compressor is no longer working or is running way too often. The last major tip is your vehicle is no longer able to reach or maintain the proper ride height.
Why Do Air Suspensions Fail?
The primary reason is the air bags that are part of the air spring are made out of rubber and they dry rot over a period of 5 to 7 years. They develop cracks and start to leak. Extreme heat and extreme cold accelerate the rate of decay, so if you live in the extreme north or the extreme south, your air suspension system will fail faster. There is no way to repair the air bag once it starts to leak, it has to be replaced.
After the systems starts leaking, the compressor is usually next to go. Most of the time, the compressor has actually failed before the owner notices there is a problem. The failure of the compressor triggers the check suspension light, but it is already too late. The extent of the repairs required at this point is very expensive.
Replacing A Leaking Air Strut Or A Failed Compressor Is Not Going To Fix Your Air Suspension Completely.
You Still Have Other Air Suspension Components That Will Also Need Replacing:
- Other Air Struts/Air Shocks/Air Springs: All Of Your Air Struts/Air Shocks/Air Springs Were Installed At The Same Time And They All Go Bad At About The Same Rate. If One Is Already Leaking, The Others Can't Be Far Behind. For A Proper Repair, All Of Them Need To Be Replaced At The Same Time.
- Dryer: Once Your Air Suspension Starts Leaking, There Will Be Moisture In The System. Moisture Damages The Air Suspension From The Inside. You Will Have To Replace The Dryer To Stop This Damage.
- Compressor/Air Pump: When Your Air Suspension Started Leaking, Your Compressor/Air Pump Started Working Harder To Try To Keep The System Inflated. As The System Leaked More, It Worked Even Harder. The Compressor In Your Air Suspension Was Not Designed To Work That Hard. By The Time Your Air Suspension Leaks Down Completely, Your Compressor Has Failed. Buying Air Struts And Taking The Time To Install Them Only To Find Out You Still Need To Replace Your Compressor Can Be Very Frustrating And Expensive.
- Ride Height Sensor: Chances Are Your Vehicle Has 100,000 miles On It, Maybe More. The Ride Height Sensor Is A Moving Part, And Like All Moving Parts, They Wear Out.
- Solenoid: The Solenoid Regulates The Air Pressure For Each Air Strut/Air Shock/Air Spring. Solenoids Start To Leak As They Wear Out Causing Your Suspension To Sag Or To Lean. This Will Cause The Ride Height Sensor To Send A Signal To Activate The Compressor In An Attempt To Inflate The Air Suspension And Level Out The Vehicle. This Excessive Work Load Will Eventually Lead To Total Failure Of The Compressor.
Ignoring The Problem Is Not The Solution
Failure to repair your air suspension system can also lead to some major safety issues, such as an air spring blowing out while doing 75MPH could send the car into a spin. Really, really not good.
A faulty air suspension can cause loss of work, car rental, towing bills, excessive repair costs (especially by big car dealerships), and in general can be very frustrating and inconvenient to say the least. Bottom line: it can cost you big bucks.
"What The Dealer Won't Tell You..."
With the insider information I know today, I can assure you that the OEM parts will always fail and are just another way for car dealers to "line their pockets" at your expense.
"Dealerships Have Used This Dirty Little Trick For Years..."
The dealerships and parts dealers want you to buy replacement parts because they know that your other air suspension and electronic parts are bound to fail in the very near future, forcing you to continue to buy more and more air suspension replacement parts over time. They make a killing as you grow more and more frustrated!
The stark reality is that luxury car and SUV owners like you, have been left in the dark. These replacement parts are expensive and in most cases it will be necessary for you to pay a dealership a bundle of cash to install them. Increasing even more the cost to get your ride fixed. Many times, you will also have to rent a car because the dealership will take days to get your air suspension working properly.
The worst part about this whole situation is that you don't have a car, the dealership takes forever to fix your ride and then the dealership will use that against you and magically find lots of other parts that “have” to be fixed. You know because it's happened to you before or to someone you know.
Don't fall for their trap...it's not pretty once they have you. They will be laughing all the way to the bank. Please, don't let these guys take your hard earned money. You have another option, and Strutmasters has done all the hard work for you.

(Product Code: -MBENZ-4-S500) These guys have the best customer service…ordered the wrong part for my vehicle. Strutmasters quicky remedied the situation…was a pleasure doing business with you all..I would definitely recommend strutmasters
I am so pleased I learned of strutmasters conversion kit. My car was sitting on the ground. It would have cost in excess of $6000 to repair. I fix with just over $2100, including labor. I still have the smooth ride and the security of never having to experience of the late night car failure.
I recently purchased Struts and Shocks for my S500 and I must admit that’s the best decision I’ve made in years when it comes to fixing cars! I also needed advice w/the installation and when I spoke to the staff at StrutMasters I literally got a step by step lesson which I totally needed but was afraid to ask for!!! This experience has me looking for cars with busted air suspensions just so I can convert and make a BIG PROFIT!!!!!
One of the upper pucks that centers the spring I received was not fully finished being machined. I called the tech line before you closed and got and answer machine Saturdhttp://sports.bluesombrero.com/mvaasportsay afternoon. I had to finish the work and drill the puck myself. After a phone call from you Monday morning, I emailed pics and a explanation. All I got was an “I’m sorry, sorry you had to do extra work”. Pretty frustration after spending $623 on a kit.
Was initially excited and pleased with purchasing the kit for my rear suspension. After my mechanic installed the kit we noticed the ride was very harsh, noisy and didn’t dampen the road. I had my mechanic take apart the interior to check that everything was installed properly and we contacted Rob in customer service. Rob sent a different set of struts but would not assist in the cost for my mechanics labor. I spoke with Ken in customer service and he also insisted that even if the original kit’s struts were defective or the wrong part, he was instructed by his Vice President that Strutmasters would not help pay the cost of reinstalling them. I now longer feel positive towards this company for their inflexible position in this matter. BE ADVISED BEFORE you consider any PURCHASE!
I did the Strutmasters coil over conversion on my ABC equipped 2001 S500. I’m very happy with the results and the ride is back to normal. I bought my car with an inactive ABC system and rather than pour thousands of dollars on an unreliable system, I decided to go with the Strutmasters conversion. Installation was overall very easy and straightforward however the only problem I ran into was that the front “quick disconnect” connections were frozen and not so quick to disconnect. After speaking with a Strutmasters tech, I was able to remove the entire line and plug from the valve. I was able to install the rear struts by myself even though they suggest 2 people. I just inserted the strut up into the strut tower and then I used my extra jack to support the strut while I tightened the 3 nuts on top of the strut inside the car. I drove the car around for a while to let things settle and then had my car aligned. This can all be done by the DIY’er in 1 afternoon.
AT FIRST I WAS RELUCTANT,I WANTED TO KEEP MY CL500 ORIGINAL,BUT THE $ TO KEEP THE ABC SYSTEM IS OUTRAGEOUS,WAY TO COSTLY,,SO I ENTERTAIN THE THOUGHT,,TOOK ME ABOUT 2 WEEKS BEFORE I PULLED THE TRIGGER,THAT TWO WEEKS WAS PURE HELL,VALVE BLOCKS,LEAKING STRUTS,LEAKING HOSES,AND A $9500 DEALER ESTIMATE,HELPED ME MAKE MY MIND UP,,,THE CALL WAS MADE,CUSTOMER SERVICE[EVETTE] WAS EXTREMELY HEPLFUL,MADE SURE I GOT THE RIGHT KIT,AND ASSURED ME THAT STRUTMASTERS WOULD BACK THERE PRODUCT,,,SO I RECEIVED THE KIT,INSTALLED THE TWO FRONT STRUTS MYSELF,IN THE PARKING LOT OF MY APARTMENT COMPLEX,,,,,,,INSTALLATION WENT SMOOTH,DIRECTIONS WERE CLEAR,,FIRST RIDE OUT ,I WAS AMAZED,AND SOLD,,,,NOW I FEEL SAFE AGAIN,NO WORRIES AT ALL,,[KICK ASS PRODUCT] I WILL BE SPREADING THE WORD TO EVERYBODY I KNOW,,,,THANKS AGAIN
I already installed the conversion kit , and the car runs beautiful , Strutmaster save me money by going to md dealer and replacing air shocks at high prices , thank you
The Strutmasters kit we recevied to replace the factory hydraulic system is indeed a great option, when you consider the cost of the factory parts. The Strutmaster kit fit perfect an we were impressed with the quality of the product. Strutmaster, thank you for making this kit.
Excellent service by Strutmasters. Kit showed up at my door in a few days after order. Installed and rides great. Front ride height might be an inch or so lower than the stock air suspension but looks great and rides great. Highly recommended to get rid of the leaking air suspension problems on the Mercedes-Benz.
