What kind of suspension does my 2005-2011 Mercedes Benz CLS500 have?

The 2005-2011 Mercedes Benz CLS500 is built with the following suspension components:

2005-2011 Mercedes Benz CLS500 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.

2005-2011 Mercedes Benz CLS500 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.

2005-2011 Mercedes Benz CLS500 Air Shocks (x2)– (models w/ AIRMATIC Dual-Control only). The air shocks are pumped up automatically to assist with the ride quality. These shocks contain a rubber bladder which is notorious for dry rotting, causing leaks in the shocks which inevitably leads to multiple failures in the air system.

2005-2011 Mercedes Benz CLS500 Passive Hydraulic Shock Absorbers (x2)- (models w/o AIRMATIC Dual-Control only). A 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.

2005-2011 Mercedes Benz CLS500 Coil Springs (x4)- (models w/o AIRMATIC). What we love! Coil springs hold the vehicle up but be careful, they are rated for and designed to work with the rest of the suspension system, so when you change air shocks to passive shocks, then you will need a different rated coil spring that works well with the new type of shocks.

2005-2011 Mercedes Benz CLS500 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.

2005-2011 Mercedes Benz CLS500 Air Lines- (models with air suspension only). Tubes that run from a compressor to the air struts which carry pressurized air to the air bags.

2005-2011 Mercedes Benz CLS500 Compressor Assembly- (models with air suspension only). 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.

2005-2011 Mercedes Benz CLS500 Suspension Control Module- a computer which is responsible for the operations of the air suspension system and maintaining the vehicle’s correct ride height.

2005-2011 Mercedes Benz CLS500 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.

How Do I Know If My 2005-2011 Mercedes Benz CLS500 Suspension Is Failing?

The most common symptom of a leaking or failed air suspension is a sudden noticeable uneven height difference between different sides of the vehicle. The vehicle could have a sagging rear end or front end, it could lean to the left side or right side, or the entire vehicle could be squatting down lower than normal. Other symptoms could include a suspension warning message or light in the instrument cluster, or the air compressor no longer working or running way too often (which would be very noisy and noticeable). The last major tip is your vehicle is no longer able to reach or maintain the proper ride height.

Why choose the Conversion Kit over replacing the air suspension system on your 2005-2011 Mercedes Benz CLS500?

We have already seen the assortment of parts that construct the air suspension system. Our conversion kit gets rid of having to depend on all of those parts functioning correctly and in sync. This conversion kit consists of (2) new pre-assembled front coil-over struts using Eibach coil springs, (2) new Eibach coil springs with mounts, and (2) passive hydraulic fluid and gas shocks for the rear. It normally only takes about an hour per wheel for installation, and is designed for DIYers! The conversion not only saves you time and frustration, it saves you lots of money. Now let’s take a look at the cost difference between choosing an air vs. a non-air suspension system. Here, we are going to compare three prices: the price for repairing your air suspension system at the dealer, the price for installing aftermarket air suspension parts on your vehicle, and the price of getting rid of the faulty air ride heartache and installing a brand new coil-over suspension conversion kit:

2005-2011 Mercedes Benz CLS500 Dealer Replacement Parts:

+ Front Air Struts ($1,240/strut) )
+ Rear Electronic Air Shocks ($580/shock)
+ Rear Air Spring ($1,190/spring)
+ Air Compressor Assembly ($380)
