How do the rear struts work on airmatic?

Not the bags but the actual struts. They look and act like normal struts but have the extra part with the cable. There seems to be a solenoid valve inside that clicks when you apply 12 volts.

I bought some aftermarket struts for my coilover conversion but after a year the rear is too stiff and bouncy. I'm going to put the originals back on without connecting the cable and see how it rides.

Are you talking about the 2007 E550? The W211 forum would know much more about it. Anyway the shock absorber on a W211 Airmatic is variable, both inwards and outwards. Solenoids switch the mode. See WIS for function descriptions or google for gf32.32-p-0001b. A direct link may not work:

Yes that is exactly what I was looking for, thanks. I posted to the general forum because the air system is common to many models.
