Hello. When you say the suspension was replaced and now needs replaced again that is a vague description. Can you tell me what exactly was replace last time and what the issue was and now what the issue is ?

Car is leaning to drivers side when it did that before they said they replaced the air suspension system for $1500 and now it is doing the same thing. I called Mercedes and they said that it was no longer under parts warenty so it would cost about the same of a little more.

The suspension system is air system that is supposed to adjust to the load I guess

why is it only on the drivers side the same side as it was before. What happens if I don't get it fixed other than the car leaning a bit to the drivers side.

Looking over you lt replies now

ok well is the side consistent now as far as it does not lower to the ground even though it may be lower then the rest of the car ? Sometimes the rear will drop which puts more weight on the front and makes it seem that the front is low. Also for 1500$ tells me they did not replace more than one strut. Do you have the old ticket with the part numbers and work details ?

Omg sorry for the spelling lol. My fingers are not co-operating with me this morning

Expert:  Lou P. master tech replied 11 months ago.

There are issues with the links to the sensors. They corrode and stick and make the car think it's level when it's not.

I have to leave for a bit. I will check back soon. I can help you figure out what to do. These systems are easy to diagnose even if you are not mechanically inclined.
