Arnott Air Suspension Products has introduced a new, not-remanufactured rear air strut – right or left – for the 1999 to 2006 S-Class Mercedes-Benz (W220 chassis) with Airmatic, and with or without 4MATIC. The new assembly – Arnott Part AS-2884 – replaces OEM part No. 2203205013 and 220320501380.
Arnott’s aftermarket rear air strut assembly is designed and assembled in the U.S. and features a new custom-valved shock absorber with a durable new Continental ContiTech rubber air spring bladder. The strut is partially protected by an aluminum can and dust baffle, designed to keep out debris. AS-2884 also includes heavy-duty crimping rings, new seals, new O-rings and a new bumpstop.
This fully assembled aftermarket air strut plugs directly into the vehicle’s electronic connector to bypass electronic damping and eliminate fault codes. This part is not for Mercedes-Benz vehicles with active body control (ABC).
The new air strut retails for $479 and is backed by Arnott’s limited lifetime warranty. A detailed instruction manual and video are available.
The company says the featured air strut for the Mercedes-Benz is a high-quality, cost-effective solution for Mercedes-Benz owners concerned about failing air suspension parts leaving them stranded with expensive and recurring maintenance problems.
