Once a Vehicle Reaches 100,000 Miles, BIG Repairs are Imminent

One Of The Most Expensive Repairs Is Your Suspension System

    • Mercedes Benz Vehicles have some of the most sophisticated and expensive suspension systems on the road.
    • Some Vehicles are equipped with an Air Suspension while others have an Active Hydraulic System (ABC -- Active Body Control).
    • Both of these systems are expensive to maintain and have a 100% Failure Rate.

Why Airmatic and Active Body Control Suspension Fails?


Normal wear and tear and exposure to the elements causes the Airmatic system’s rubber air springs to dry rot. Tiny cracks slowly leak air from the system, causing the onboard air compressor to run endlessly until it gets overworked and shuts down. The air springs collapse and the vehicle’s suspension drops from three to five inches.

Active Body Control

This system pumps hydraulic fluid at extremely high pressure through sophisticated and expensive struts on each corner of the vehicle. Leaks in rubber o-rings, high-pressure lines or the struts themselves eventually run the system low or completely out of fluid. This burns up the pump, dropping the vehicle’s suspension from three to five inches.

To Make Matters Worse

Both of these suspension systems rely heavily on data gathered from a network of from electronic sensors and computers throughout the vehicle. Replacing a few components may not be enough. One failure in the electronic network can shut down the entire suspension.

Work On Factory Suspension OR Install a Conversion Kit

Keep The Factory System

We understand some people would prefer to keep the “active” factory suspension, using Original Equipment parts. This may be the first of several repairs needed to maintain the factory suspension system. If you choose this route, check with Strutmasters BEFORE you spend thousands elsewhere. Strutmasters carries many aftermarket suspension components at the lowest prices around.

Install A Conversion Kit

Strutmasters invented the world’s first fully-assembled suspension conversion kit in 1999 as a cost-effective alternative to expensive repair of the factory suspension. Our conversion kits feature Eibach brand coil springs to get you closer to the original factory ride quality than other product on the market. Each kit is designed from the chassis of an actual vehicle and is a permanent solution to the problem.
