Arnott Introduces Remanufactured Rear Shocks
Jan. 21, 2019—Arnott introduced additional Arnott designed aftermarket and remanufactured OE rear shocks for Mercedes-Benz E-Class and CLS-Class models. The new Arnott shocks bypass the aging and often-problematic Adaptive Damping System (ADS) on these older vehicles and include a coil resister which plugs in to the vehicle’s electrical system to eliminate any suspension dashboard warning lights.
The new Arnott shocks, which fit both the left and right side of the applications, include a custom-valved and thoroughly road-tested damper which provides an excellent ride which Mercedes owners expect. These shocks include a new polyurethane bump stop, new top and bottom mounts, which provide a tight fit, and a protective dust boot.
The Arnott-designed aftermarket rear shock SK-3012 fits the third generation E-Class (W211 chassis) and first generation CLS-Class (W219 chassis), both with AIRMATIC and with ADS including AMG models. Arnott’s SK-3039 is an Arnott-designed new rear shock for the 2003-2009 Mercedes-Benz E-Class (W211 chassis) and 2005-2011 CLS-Class (W219 chassis) without ADS or AIRMATIC and with or without Rear Load Leveling, excluding AMG models.
Arnott’s SK-3199 is a remanufactured OE rear shock for the 2003-2009 Mercedes-Benz E-Class (W211 chassis) and 2005-2011 CLS-Class (W219 chassis) AMG models with AIRMATIC and ADS, and without 4MATIC and Arnott remanufactured rear OE shocks are inspected, steam cleaned, and spin blasted to bare metal before being recharged with new high-performance shock oil. Worn components, such as the piston, rod guides and seal pack are replaced before being repainted with corrosion inhibiting paint.
