Why Choose Strutmasters?
Why choose the Conversion Kit over replacing the air suspension system on your 2003-2009 Mercedes Benz E500 (RWD) Sedan?Your 2003-2009 Mercedes Benz E500 RWD sedan air suspension system is made up of a wide array of parts. Each part must function properly in sync or else the system is defunct. Constant repair at the Mercedes dealership can be very costly- we’ve seen customers spend a fortune! As the Suspension Experts, we knew there had to be a smarter way to do things. We created our air to non-air suspension conversion kit to eliminate the dependence on these parts forever. This kit includes one custom designed suspension light fix module, two new pre-assembled front coil over struts using Eibach coil springs, two new Eibach coil springs with mounts, and two passive hydraulic fluid and gas shocks for the rear end of the E500. DIYers love that the kit is installed in about one hour per wheel, saving lots of time. Frustration is gone for good thanks to the easy to read installation instructions that come with each kit, complete with pictures. And the kit saves a ton of money. When choosing an air vs non-air suspension system, the cost difference is tremendous. Look at our comparison of three different costs on this page: that of repairing the air suspension system at the dealership, that of installing aftermarket air suspension parts piece by piece, and that of getting rid of the air ride headache forever by installing a Strutmasters coilover suspension conversion kit today.
Is Your Suspension Failing?
How do I know if my 2003-2009 Mercedes Benz E500 (RWD) Sedan Air Suspension is failing?There are common signs of a failed or leaking air suspension system you can identify when attempting to diagnose a suspension system going bad on your E500 RWD sedan. The most noticeable is a sudden uneven height difference between two sides of the vehicle. Usually, there is one sagging end while the opposite end remains inflated (right vs. left, rear vs. front). This makes the E500 look like it is squatting down low to the ground. Sometimes there is a shifting lean from one side to the other. If you think your E500 can no longer meet and maintain its appropriate ride height, a bad air suspension system is likely to blame. An illuminated suspension warning light on the instrument panel will confirm this suspicion. Also, check the air compressor for signs that a bad suspension has caused it to wear out. It may have stopped working or may run too often (will be very loud and noisy).
What kind of suspension does my 2003-2009 Mercedes Benz E500 (RWD) Sedan have?
The 2003-2009 Mercedes Benz E500 (RWD Sedan) is built with the following suspension components:
2003-2009 Mercedes Benz E500 (RWD Sedan) Electronic Shocks (x2)- shocks abosrbers whose dampening capabilities is controlled by the suspension control module in order to ensure proper wheel-to-ground contact.
2003-2009 Mercedes Benz E500 (RWD Sedan) Air Springs (x4)- (models with air suspension only) commonly referred to as air bags, a plastic and rubber bag that is fitted on top of the strut that uses pressurized air as a cushion instead of a metal coil spring to hold a vehicle off of the ground and off of its wheels. These are the number one cause of all air suspension leaks. All air springs all go bad at about the same rate. If one is leaking, the others will not be far behind. For a proper repair, all of them need to be replaced at the same time..
2003-2009 Mercedes Benz E500 (RWD Sedan) Struts (x2)- a type of shock absorber; has metal tubing filled with gas-charged hydraulic fluid that is connected to the wheel of a vehicle in order to reduce the effects of vertical travel on a rough surface which controls the bounciness, and therefore comfort, of a vehicle.; the air spring assembled on top of the strut is commonly referred to as an air strut.
2003-2009 Mercedes Benz E500 (RWD Sedan) Height Sensors (x4)- a linkage located near each wheel of a vehicle with any electronic suspension that, either mechanically or electronically, constantly measures the height of the vehicle, and reports this information back to the control module so that the computer can identify if changes in height need to be adjusted accordingly. The ride height sensor is a moving part, and like all moving parts, they will eventually wear out.
2003-2009 Mercedes Benz E500 (RWD Sedan) Air Lines- tubes that run from a compressor to the air struts which carry pressurized air to the air bags.
2003-2009 Mercedes Benz E500 (RWD Sedan) Solenoids (x4)- usually L-shaped, these plastic components connect the electrical connection and lines of suspension components to the suspension control module on vehicles with active suspension. The solenoid regulates the air pressure for each air spring. Solenoids start to leak as they wear out causing the vehicle 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.
2003-2009 Mercedes Benz E500 (RWD Sedan) Compressor Assembly- creates/sends pressurized air to active suspension components. When the air suspension starts leaking, the compressor/pump starts working harder to try to keep the system inflated. By the time air suspension leaks down completely, sitting the vehicle on its tires, the compressor will either have failed or be well on its way to full failure. Buying replacement struts and taking the time to install them only to find out the compressor still needs to be replaced can be very frustrating, time-consuming, and expensive.
2003-2009 Mercedes Benz E500 (RWD Sedan) Suspension Control Module- a computer which is responsible for the operations of the air suspension system and maintaining the vehicle’s correct ride height.
2003-2009 Mercedes Benz E500 (RWD Sedan) O-rings- although they are the least expensive parts of the air suspension, they are responsible for maintaining the seal where all of the air lines connect. Be sure to replace the O-rings when repairing any air suspension system.

These struts are great, they ride as good if not better than the airmatic. I was a little worried the day after putting them on because the car was sitting a little high but it settled some after a day and it was perfect after sitting two days. The directions for the warning light computer relay was a little difficult to understand and I had to do some additional research, but now I get it and I will put it on as soon as I get a couple of hours free time.
