This is an ongoing topic of discussion that never gets old. As Mercedes models that incorporate the ABC (active body control) into their suspension age, the cost of repairs and maintenance increase greatly. So much, that this often is the beginning of the end of ownership. Mercedes of course, supports the repair and maintenance of these models. The OEM new parts are plentiful and easily accessible by the dealership, but costly. Labor cost is also a factor that must be considered. Another option does exist, nonetheless. Before I mention it, I must say....nothing feels as perfect as a functioning ABC suspension. Nothing can equally replace the results of Mercedes engineering, research and development. But, there is an option. Coilovers.
