Air suspension products company Arnott has added new products for Mercedes-Benz vehicles.
Two new rear shocks are designed for 2006-2013 R-Class applications with and without ADS (adaptive damping system). SK-3217 is for Mercedes-Benz R-Class (W251 chassis) vehicles with ADS excluding AMG models while SK-3218 covers R-Class 4MATIC and rear wheel drive models without AIRMATIC. Both include custom-valved twin tube shock dampers.
The shocks include new top and bottom mounts, a new polyurethane bump stop and protective dust boot. SK-3217 bypasses the often-problematic ADS system by incorporating a custom-valved shock and includes a coil resistor which plugs into the vehicle’s electrical system to eliminate any suspension dashboard warning lights. Both new R-Class rear shocks require no core deposit and are backed by a limited lifetime warranty.
Arnott has also released SK-3197, a remanufactured OE rear shock absorber with active damping functionality for the left or right side of the 2003-2009 Mercedes-Benz E-Class (W211) and 2005-2011 CLS-Class (W219 chassis) both with ADS.
In addition, SK-3268 is a remanufactured OE rear shock absorber with active damping functionality for the left or right side of the 2013-2018 GL/GLS-Class (X166 chassis) and 2012-2018 ML/GLE-Class (W166 chassis) applications with ADS.
