  • Arnott Air Suspension Featured in MOTOR Magazine eNewsletter

    Arnott Air Suspension was featured in the December 18, 2018 MOTOR Magazine eNewsletter. The article, written by Bob Chabot, discusses why shops should consider adding air suspension maintenance to their list of services they provide for luxury car owners. “Whether a general or specialty shop, you may want to consider offering an air suspension inspection as part of your routine maintenance procedures,” shared Doug Taylor, Arnott's product marketing manager. “Servicing air suspension is much easier nowadays, which many shops aren’t yet aware of. And adding air suspension service at your shop also keeps current customers with you instead of visiting a dealership.”

    Arnott offers customers a choice when repairing or replacing a customer's failing air suspension system

    The article goes on to list some air suspension maintenance and service advice:

    A shop should inspect the vehicle’s air springs and air struts with every visit after about 70,000 miles. Look for excessive oil leaking from and on the shock portion of the strut, which may indicate a failing damper. Be aware that uneven tire wear may not only indicate an alignment issue but may be due to an air suspension problem.

    Look for tiny cracks on the air spring, particularly around where the bag may fold upon itself. If these cracks are developing, use the soap and water spray test. A mixture of 1 tablespoon of dish soap to 1 quart of water, sprayed from an all-purpose spray bottle, can be used to detect a leak by looking for soap bubbles.

    A clean rubber air spring will extend the life of the bladder. By spraying the air spring with soap and water to test the air spring for leaks you will loosen debris, road grime and oils. Hosing off the soap will help clean the spring which may extend the rubber's life. Look for rub marks on the air spring or on any visible air lines. Rubbing may come from aggressive driving, driving over rough terrain or if parts – including air lines and air line fasteners – are loose.

    The air suspension compressor’s dryer should be replaced each time an air spring is replaced, if possible. A leaking air spring may allow moisture to enter the system, causing damage to the system. A leaking air spring may also cause the compressor to overwork and eventually burn out. And if the vehicle comes in with a dashboard suspension warning light or the compressor is not operating, check the air suspension relay.

    When replacing an inoperative compressor, it is vital that the installer perform the soapy water test to look for the leak that caused the original problem. Most commonly the leak is on the air spring, but it could also be due to a loose or failing air line fitting on the spring or strut, a valve block, an air tank reservoir or compressor. In addition, be sure to replace the air suspension fuses and compressor relay.

  • Arnott Aftermarket New and Remanufactured O.E. Rear Shocks for E-Class & CLS-Class Now Available

    Arnott has released two Arnott-engineered new rear shocks for 03-09 Mercedes-Benz E-Class and 05-11 CLS-Class applications with AIRMATIC & ADS, incl. AMG and for models without ADS or AIRMATIC, and with or without Rear Load Leveling excl. AMG
    • Arnott also has released a remanufactured OE rear shock for 2003-2009 Mercedes-Benz E-Class and 2005-2011 CLS-Class AMG applications with ADS and AIRMATIC and without 4MATIC which support the OE semi-active damping functionality.

    Arnott introduced additional Arnott designed aftermarket and remanufactured OE rear shocks for Mercedes-Benz E-Class and CLS-Class models. The new Arnott shocks bypass the aging and often-problematic Adaptive Damping System (ADS) on these older vehicles and include a coil resister which plugs in to the vehicle’s electrical system to eliminate any suspension dashboard warning lights.

    Aftermarket New and Remanufactured OE rear shocks for Mercedes-benz E-Class CLS-Class W211 W219

    The new Arnott shocks, which fit both the left and right side of the applications, include a custom-valved and thoroughly road-tested damper which provides an excellent ride which Mercedes owners expect. These shocks, which have zero miles on them, include a new polyurethane bump stop, new top and bottom mounts, which provide a tight fit, and a protective dust boot.

    The Arnott-designed aftermarket rear shock SK-3012 fits the third generation E-Class (W211 chassis) and first generation CLS-Class (W219 chassis), both with AIRMATIC and with ADS including AMG models. Arnott’s SK-3039 is an Arnott-designed new rear shock for the 2003-2009 Mercedes-Benz E-Class (W211 chassis) and 2005-2011 CLS-Class (W219 chassis) without ADS or AIRMATIC and with or without Rear Load Leveling, excluding AMG models.

    Arnott’s SK-3199 is a remanufactured OE rear shock for the 2003-2009 Mercedes-Benz E-Class (W211 chassis) and 2005-2011 CLS-Class (W219 chassis) AMG models with AIRMATIC and ADS, and without 4MATIC and Arnott remanufactured rear OE shocks are inspected, steam cleaned, and spin blasted to bare metal before being recharged with new high-performance shock oil. Worn components, such as the piston, rod guides and seal pack are replaced before being repainted with corrosion inhibiting paint.

    The U.S. designed and assembled replacement shocks come just months after the company released Arnott remanufactured OE rear shocks SK-3197 and SK-3268 for the 2003-2009 Mercedes-Benz E-Class (W211 chassis) and 2005-2011 CLS-Class (W219 chassis) with ADS. Arnott’s new and remanufactured rear shocks are fully compatible with both the OE rear air spring and Arnott’s innovative rear air spring for the E-Class which offers a significantly faster and easier installation than the OE. Arnott also recently released SK-3262 - an Arnott remanufactured OE rear shock absorber for the left or right side of the 2006-2013 Mercedes R-Class (W251 Chassis) with ADS and AIRMATIC fitting both vehicles with 4MATIC or rear wheel drive, excluding AMG models.
