I just wanted to give everyone an update on the coil spring conversion kit for the W220 Mercedes with AIRmatic. The complete conversion kit will be available for sale in about another month. We just spent the last couple weeks doing the final road testing with Bilstein’s engineers here at our facility. We are all very impressed with the ride and handling of the final product. The kit doesn’t sacrifice any of the ride characteristics of the S-Class. We spent countless hours tuning springs and shock valving with Bilstein to bring to you a conversion kit that actually rides like the OEM air suspension. I will keep you all updated with a release date and more details. The kit will come with four ready to bolt in shocks and a special computer module to disarm the AIRmatic warning light on your dash. We plan on having a special sale on this kit when it comes available. I will keep you all posted. Take care and have a great night everyone!

COIL SPRING CONVERSION KIT UPDATE

hi, any update on this? thanks
Hello everyone I am happy to finally announce that our coil spring conversion kit is available for the S-Class (W220). Sorry for all the delays. We have worked extra hard over the past 4 years to develop a nearly perfect coil spring replacement kit for S-Class. Here are a few pictures of the complete kit as well as some close ups of the front and rear shocks assemblies. I will include more pictures and drawings later this month. I know some of you have mixed feelings about replacing your AIRmatic system with a coil spring set up. Your concerns have certainly motivated us to work extra hard to develop a kit that rides and handles up to everyone’s high expectations. We have worked tirelessly on testing different spring rates and valving combinations to produce a product that rides and handles as close to the factory air suspension as possible. We worked directly with Bilstein to develop and tune the shock valving, and even had some of their seasoned road testing engineers come down and help us do the final tuning of this kit. The kit comes complete with everything needed to replace your entire AIRmatic system. It also comes with our exclusive computer module that wire directly into the factory suspension module to eliminate all error lights on your dash. This kit retails for $1395.00. Also remember you can still use the 10% discount code posted in our sponsor forum. This kit is currently only available for non-4matic and cars not equipped with ABC. We plan on releasing kits for those models later this year.
Please let me know if any of you have any questions or comments I can answer.

Thanks
Adam Arnott

Any word on the timing for the 220 4matic version?

Also, I note that your test fleet includes a CL500. Will there be a conversion offered for the ABC equipped W215 CL and if so, what is the timing for that?

Thanks,

John
