ARNOTT REAR AIR SPRING
FOR MERCEDES-BENZ E-CLASS, AMG (W211)

Congratulations on your purchase of an Arnott® air suspension product. We at Arnott Incorporated are proud to offer a high quality product at the industry’s most competitive pricing. Thank you for your confidence in us and our product.

Proper installation is essential to experience and appreciate the benefits of this system. Please take a moment to review these installation instructions before you begin to install these components on your vehicle. The removal and installation of air suspension products should only be performed by a fully qualified, ASE Certified, professional.

It is equally important to be aware of all necessary safety measures while installing your new Air Suspension System. This includes proper lifting and immobilizing of the vehicle and isolation of any stored energy to prevent personal injury or property damage.

"Engineered to Ride, Built to Last®"


IMPORTANT NOTICE

If replacing an O.E. unit with an Arnott Air Spring you MUST replace both rear air springs at the same time.

Replacing just one O.E. spring with the Arnott designed air spring may result in a slight difference in heights between the O.E. side and new air spring side. This is due to the vehicle’s ride height sensor reading different pressures in the new and O.E. springs and automatically making adjustments for that. This does not occur if you replace both sides at once.
