Why Choose Strutmasters Instead Of Those Other Guys
Because we are The Suspension Experts, we know the assortment of parts that make up the Mercedes S500 4 Wheel suspension like the back of our hands. We know that it requires all of those complicated electrical parts to function properly and in sync for your ride to have working suspension. We created a passive suspension conversion kit to help you get rid of those troubles for good. The kit includes one new suspension warning light elimination module and four completely pre-assembled coil-over struts that can be installed with four bolts per strut. Our DIYers love our kits because they can be installed in about one hour per wheel. No need to bring it to the dealership. Our parts come backed by our lifetime limited warranty, so you can be ensured of their quality. The kit was designed to save you time, frustration, and money. Here, we compare three different prices so you can see for yourself: that of factory active suspension replacement at the dealer, that of installing aftermarket suspension replacement parts on your S500 yourself, and installing a Strutmasters brand coil-over suspension conversion kit. Trust us, you and your wallet will be glad you went with Strutmasters!
How Do I know If My S500 Air Suspension is failing?
You may not know for sure if your 2000-2006 Mercedes S500 has a failed or leaking suspension, but you might suspect it. There are common signs that can help you diagnose how bad it is. The most common symptom of suspension total failure is a sudden noticeable uneven height difference between different sides of the S500. The rear might sag while the front end remains inflated (this will make the S500 look like it’s squatting down too low to the ground). There may be leaning from one side to the other. A bad suspension will keep the S500 from being able to reach and maintain its proper ride height. It is not safe to drive and should be fixed immediately. If you still aren’t sure, look at the instrument cluster. If there is an illuminated suspension warning light or message, that’s a tell-tale indicator something needs repair. Also, check on your air compressor. If it is no longer working or running too often (very noticeable and noisy), then a repair or replacement is probably imminent.

Suspension Components List
The 2000-2006 Mercedes S500 is built with the following suspension components:
2000-2006 Mercedes S500 Air Struts (x4)- (models with air suspension only). Commonly referred to as air bags, a plastic and rubber spring is fitted on top of the strut. The air spring uses pressurized air as a cushion and takes the place of a metal coil spring to support the weight of the vehicle. These rubber air springs are the number one cause of all air suspension leaks. All air springs 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.
2000-2006 Mercedes S500 Hydraulic Struts (x4)- (models with hydraulic active suspension). If your model of Mercedes-Benz has this, then the steering pump also pushes hydraulic fluid to your
2000-2006 Mercedes S500 Struts (x4)- 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.
2000-2006 Mercedes S500 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.
2000-2006 Mercedes S500 Air/Hydraulic Lines- tubes that run from a compressor to the air struts (or a hydraulic pump to the hydraulic struts for models with hydraulic active suspension), which carry pressurized air to the air bags (or hydraulic fluid to hydraulic struts) in order to adjust the height of the vehicle, respectively.
2000-2006 Mercedes S500 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.
2000-2006 Mercedes S500 Compressor Assembly- (models with air suspension only). Creates/sends pressurized 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.
2000-2006 Mercedes S500 Hydraulic Pump- if your Mercedes has hydraulic suspension instead of air suspension, then the hydraulic steering pump will also serve as the reservoir for the hydraulic fluid going into the struts.
2000-2006 Mercedes S500 Suspension Control Module- a computer which is responsible for the operations of the air suspension system and maintaining the vehicle's correct ride height.
2000-2006 Mercedes S500 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 or hydraulic lines connect. Be sure to replace the O-rings when repairing any air suspension system.

Great work Jason. Everything was very clear and on time. We have not put the parts yet in our car but your service was great.
Strutmasters has created a great product replacement for Air strut replacement! The Strutmaster struts provides a smooth ride and comfort that Mercedes has become synonymous with. The Strutmasters ride is almost identical to the OEM struts. I would recommend this product to anyone needing to replace air struts, with this type of conversion you won’t lose! It’s well worth the price. I had the best customer interaction with Donielle. She was very attentive to my needs and made sure that I had everything I needed to help me with the conversion. Her customer relation skills exceeded all of my expectations. She was a pure pleasure in assisting me with all of my needs!. Thank you!
Don’t normally post reviews but wanted to share my experience with Strutmasters. My s500 suspension failed and was quoted thousands to replace with original parts. Found Strutmasters through an online search and saw that they were close by. I scheduled an appointment for them to look at my car at their facility. What an UNBELIEVABLE facility and an awesome group of people. They not only had the parts in Stock but installed the parts on site all for less than 1/3 of the original quote. My car sits and rides awesome!!! If you are on the fence, don’t hesitate you will not regret it!!!
My 2001 s500 Mercedes Benz hydraulic suspension failed. So instead of having it replaced with oem struts. I called Jason @ strutmasters and purchased the coilover conversion kit. I paid my mechanic 500 usd to install it. Contrary to peoples opinion about Strumasters and negative review of the product on the Mercedes Benz forum, the s500 ride is super smooth and performed like a new car. I drove the vehicle at different speeds from normal city driving with lots of stop and go and freeway driving @speed 75 up to 140mph when it’s safe to do so for 2 weeks and my conclusion is that the Strutmasters coilover kit is superbly manufactured and performed very well. I rate it from 1 to 10, believe it a happy 10. Thank you Strutmasters for a great product. And saving me money. God bless the USA and God bless all of you @ Strutmasters!
Great ride & a great team. I like your Auto Museum, lots of history. Thanks to all – Jerry
I talked to Jason about conversion kit for my Mercedes s500. He made it possible & I saved money. Thank you, Jason
Jennifer was so kind to help me get to the conversion kit. The transaction was very easy over the phone. Thank you Jennifer – it was a great deal!
My Benz was slammed to the ground. It is no more. The front is actually sky high which I can’t stand but @ least she ain’t scrapin asphalt.. Wish I could’ve had them installed @ Strutmasters facility in Roxboro NC but that wasn’t an option due to them building new facility.
When I called Strutmasters, I encountered a very informative gentlemen named: (Darrell Chandler), that informed me on my issues and gave me knowledge of various options to satisfy my mechanical needs. This experience was over and above customer service, I felt more like a friend then a customer. My needs were met and the issue solved. Darrell Chandler provided excellent service.
Great job Strutmasters Team! Very knowledgeable & professional. I had this problem with my 03 S430 for 3 yrs. now. Thanks to Strutmasters the problem no longer exists & I saved a lot of money & the ride is great. Being from Greensboro & Strutmasters being in Roxboro NC 70 miles away, I set up a appointment and drove my S430 to Roxboro, slowly! Nice meet and greet with Darrell, Matt, Randy & JP, all very nice people. I was invited to tour around the office & the Auto Museum. Lots of History, Autos, Sports & Stuff. Thanks Strutmasters, I am so happy to be rid of the suspension problem. Please let everyone know you are located in Roxboro, NC.
Thanks again. Jerry
I must say I am very Happy with the transaction. Great service, fast shipping and fit like a glove. Your installation instructions should be improved with regards to the electronic portion. Would have been nice to know resistors weren’t required when using the module. Your customer service is the Best I have encountered in some time. Congrats. I am avery happy Client, Rob Francoeur
