Our Mercedes-Benz W251 R-Class 2006-2013 With ADS Remanufactured Air Spring Bag Strut will replace the original Front Air Spring Bag Strut. What is an air spring bag strut?- Sometimes it is called an Air Spring, Air Shock, Air Bag or Bellows. A conventional strut uses a steel coil spring but an air strut employs an air spring bag or bellow. This makes the ride more comfortable and gives the driver more control of ride height. The most common reason for an air strut failure is due to dry rotting of the air spring bag. This is something that happens over time, the rubber starts to deteriorate and causes leaks, when this happens the air bag can no longer hold air pressure. A leaking air bag can cause the strut it fits over to fail as well. The second factor of an air strut failure is the strut itself. The strut is pressurized with fluid, and if the strut begins to fail it will no longer have the same pressure to hold the vehicle. If this system begins to fail one visible sign will be that your vehicle will be lower than factory height. If Air Struts are not replaced on time it will cause Air Suspension Compressor Failure.

On a recent trip from Florida, I noticed an ominous and reoccurring starboard list . My 2008 Mercedes R350 was lowered and leaning on the right side. On starting the vehicle the airmatic system would level the
vehicle but, it would have to do that constantly, running the risk of burning
out the accompanying air compressor. The problem was a dry rotted suspension air bag at the right front tire. A part search ensued at some of the "regular, well advertised and dealer parts sources. That was like looking for a kidney donor and seemingly as expensive. I stumbled across Rebuild Master Tech on the web, a company who stated they had years of experience dealing with various manufacturers and air suspension applications. It turned out to be a gift from above. Not only were they familiar with my issues and vehicle, they had the part that I needed in a box waiting only for my address to be shipped the very same day for way less than than the dealers and well advertised competition. It arrived the next day, fitted perfectly and following the enclosed tips and available tech advice at the RMT website was easy
installation. Kiersten is angel sent from heaven to watch over her product and service. If any body needs a mentor for their customer service program try luring her away from RMT. I printed out the core return shipping label placed it on the original shipping box and gave it
a FedEx driver allowing me to continue my new found "uplifting relationship" with Rebuild Master Tech. No more complaints or fears from the wife about quality or right fit for parts for the R350. Thanks Kiersten and crew at RMT! Did I mention the limited life time warranty?
