Many car brands have air suspension that allows you to automatically or manually alter the clearance between the car body and the road surface. In this type of suspension, a special pneumatic element is used, which replaces conventional shock absorbers, springs and torsion bars. If you are going to replace the air suspension of your Mercedes ML Class W166, it is important to understand that for each car this component differs in certain characteristics. You should take that into account at the time of purchase.

How to choose the right component?
There are certain parameters that you should pay close attention to when buying this car system. If you choose air springs (as an addition to the suspension), be sure to check the type of mount. The suitable diameter of the air suspension strut depends on it. There are three types of mounts:
- on top of the standard struts;
- next to the standard struts;
- replacing the regular springs.
The height of the air spring in compressed and inflated states is important. This indicator determines the clearance adjustment. If you want to install this spare part to slightly unload the rear of the body, then pay attention to the maximum possible size (in this case, the larger the better).
If you don’t buy the whole set, but just the individual elements, make sure that they fit the main system, as well as to a specific make of the car. So, when choosing shock absorbers, it is important to consider whether you like the behavior of the car or not. Pneumatic shock absorbers (air suspension struts) are more suitable for motorists who appreciate good handling, as they can cope better with a critical situation on the road.
