ABC Suspension Issues

Have a 2003 SL500 with AMG SL2 purchased new in August 2003..Car now has miles on it. yes 6500 total and has been babied since Am currently noticing minor on the rear struts. Accordingly,have researching my next steps. read and reread nearly I can find on the ABC suspension system including the MBWorld blogs. I that this space age ABC system — while a neat way to keep the car flat in every road situation can be a pit. Most but not all of the issues strut problems — front and rear. sometimes by the four accumulators and or pump (2900 PSI) over aging seals and lines. and the accumlators

and /or pump. In my reading, I have that the BIG BLACK SL uses over struts and sway vs.the CL’s and SL’s ABC

The Arnott Corp (in Orlando, FL) rebuilt ABC struts with a attractive warranty at about per strut which beats the MB dealer’s parts/ service continuing trips). Having and loyally driven Mercedes 1958. including a W198 the sports package and a W107-026 SLC 5.0, I am very loyal (to a point). However, since we drive the car that is engineered no other..or..the best or nothing. I why the R230’s continuing weakest is the really advanced ABC liquid system. While it is reasonably forward and understandable. I wonder why it is robust as aircraft hydraulics become. One would think for the new

car sticker price that the QC would be more scrutinzed. with as those damn or covers for the top mechanism. which are no used in the R231

My current options are to keep the ABC — instead of gutting it and StrutMasters’ coil overs which are static and give a harsher,but predictable ride Strutmasters ( in N.C) offer an Light kit for a few extra dollars to the ABC warning lights after the ABC are replaced. If I retain the ole ABC system. I to rebuild it and make it as bullet (and dealer proof) as by replacing all lines with aircraft quality lines. put I do not intend to spend the price of a SL in ABC repairs and replacements any more necessary.
