Strutmasters

Was watching TruckU this morning and they had a piece on Strutmasters. They make replacements for the airmatics that include struts and springs. Could be cheaper than replacing the compressor and airmatics. Strutmasters.com

Strutmasters is inferior to the numerous other airmatic conversion kits out there
try arnott, ceika or yellowspeed instead

2005 S500
Hey guys, following this thread.

I recently bought a 2005 S500 RWD. It has 109k miles. (bought it at the end of 09/17 with 105k miles on it).

When I put my kids in the rear the car hits when I go over a bump. Seems to me the shocks need replacing.

Apparently, whoever owned it in the past, converted the shocks. What do you recommend I replace these with? I hear strutmasters are low quality.




rear passenger side suspension

strutmaster is junk

dId your car originally have airmatic or abc Suspension? You'll know if it had abc is there is a black switch labeled ABC at the top center of your dash where all the switches are .

if your button says ABC, yellowspeed and ceika make good abc conversion kits
if it doesn't say ABC then you had airmatic and Arnott makes a good airmatic conversion kit .
