Nowadays, modern life is unimaginable without an air suspension in your vehicle. For many drivers owning a car means comfortable rides. While choosing a car, we try to take into consideration many details. Of course, the first thing which we check is the look, but another most important thing is suspension, the part of a car that determines its performance. Hence due to the importance of the part, many discuss which type can be the best and most reliable.
Below we will differentiate air suspension from others. We’ll explore how the pneumatic system works, its pros and cons, why the system might be the most comfortable one, what are other suspension systems and how they work. And at last but not least, we will explore an amazing tool that every Mercedes car-owner should have, for changing an automobile level.
Before going into details of the air suspension system, let me explain in simple words, what the suspension means. In simple words, the suspension is the system that connects an automobile to its wheels. It includes tires, tire air, springs, shock absorbers, and linkages. An automobile might have differently designed suspensions for rear and front parts.
Three types of the suspension system
People started using the first suspension system for carriages, centuries ago. After centuries of development, we’ve received three types of suspension systems: Hydro-gas; Hydrolastic; and air matic suspension. Each of them has its own specification and differs from each other. Let’s shortly review each of them.
In order to understand why the pneumatic suspension system is considered the most reliable one, we should dive a bit deeper into a suspension system. As you already know, Spring is one of the components of a suspension system that plays a big role. Without springs, automobiles can’t maintain the height on the ground and adapt to various road conditions.
Air spring vs Coil spring and Leaf spring
Springs, likewise, to suspension systems are three different types. Reviewing all the spring types, helps us to understand the main differences.
All in all, the airmatic suspension system’s main character, which distinguishes it from others is that it uses air and shock absorber as a working fluid. The system isolates the vehicle’s body from the vibration derived from the road inconsistency. Hence, while driving a car, you can enjoy comfortable rides no matter the road surface, or load. Modern cars are equipped with factory electronically controlled air or hydraulic suspension systems, which allows you to change suspension level depending on your needs. Besides, the outstanding specification of the system is its longevity. You won’t have to change the front air springs at least for 10-15 years, and the rears last much longer.
While talking about the airlift suspension we should mention the must-have tool for any Mercedes car-owner. The tool is designed specifically for the Mercedes airmatic system and works via OBD II diagnostic port. By using the tool, you can set your vehicle at the desired level in seconds!
For using the tool, you don’t have to cut wires. No experience or knowledge of a vehicle is necessary. You should simply plug in the module at diagnosis and that’s it! You are ready to choose desired height from three modes, Low, Custom, and Factory.
Remember, you can set an automobile level at the factory height at any time. So, if you change your mind, you can always adjust the air suspension upon your wish.
Reasons to use the Mercedes lowering module
Another thing that I admire in the Mercedes lowering tool is that you can lower and increase an automobile level in one tool. Let me describe shortly the benefits that you can get from the device.
To summarize, we’ve learned how the air ride suspension works, what distinguishes it from others. The list of advantages of the system is too long, but the outstanding specifications are following:
Besides, we’ve learned how to adjust an automobile level in seconds, the benefits we get by using the Mercedes lowering module. I’m sure you will test it on your “best buddy” and share feedback with us. Good luck!
