Hi, my name is***** is a fairly straightforward job. Most importantly, the shop you bring the car to needs to have the proper Mercedes scan tool in order to erase the fault codes in the Airmatic system. The labor charge to replace both air springs should be between 1.5 - 2.0 hours labor. The air springs retail for $440 each at the Mercedes dealer. Aftermarket air springs are available from Arnott Inc. for about half the price of the new springs. I've used the aftermarket springs in the past with good results. Let me know if you have any questions.
