Arnott Introduces Two New Valve Blocks
for BMW 5 Series and BMW X5 Applications
Arnott Air Suspension Products announces the introduction of two new aftermarket Air Suspension Solenoid Valve Blocks for BMW 5 Series and BMW X5 applications.
-- Introducing K-2897 ... for the 2004 to 2010 BMW 5 Series (E61 Chassis) Wagon. Replaces OE Part Number F8VZ5319AA. Retails for $119. Backed by Limited Lifetime Warranty in North American and European Union.
-- Introducing K-2898 ... for the 2007 to 2013 BMW X5 (E70 Chassis). Replaces OE Part Numbers F6AZ5319AA, 8W1Z5319A, and F1VY5319A. Retails for $119. Backed by Limited Lifetime Warranty in North American and European Union.
Both K-2897 and K-2898 are direct replacements for the vehicle's failing valve block.
An air suspension solenoid valve block is responsible for distributing air from the Compressor to your Air Struts or Air Springs. Over time valve block O-Rings can dry rot and leak air causing your compressor to overwork or allow moisture to degrade the electrical solenoid components, causing additional problems.
The Arnott Solenoid Valve Block is made from the highest quality materials and is designed to meet or exceed the original equipment.
These Valve Blocks are the first of more to come from Arnott including one for several Mercedes-Benz applications to be available soon!

Monotube Shocks vs. Twin Tube
The most common internal shock absorber designs are monotube and twin tube.
The biggest distinguishing feature between the two styles is that in a monotube, the piston rides directly on the inside wall of the shock body. In a twin tube, the piston rides inside a compression tube which is spaced slightly in from the wall of the shock body.
Twin tube shocks are cost-effective and provide satisfactory safety, handling, and control for most driving conditions. A monotube design offers what most drivers consider to be superior handling and performance, as well as a ‘sporty’ ride. Because of these performance characteristics, monotube shocks often are original equipment on luxury cars and SUVs, and are common aftermarket upgrades on vehicles originally equipped with the twin tube design.
Unless pricing is most important in a repair or upgrade discussion, many automotive experts and driving enthusiasts consider monotube shocks are preferable because of superior:
-- Ride quality,
-- Durability, and
-- Ease of installation.
