A New Life for my 2007 SL550

When the ABC system on my 2007 MB SL550 failed, I turned to the Silver’s Neomax. I installed these with the help of a friend and honestly, I can’t tell the difference from this ride and when the ABC suspension was working well. My wife on the other hand said it handles better and tracks straighter coming out of slow turns. The price was great and shipping was fast - thanks for a great product!

03 SL55 Conversion from ABC to Silvers Neomax

I spent a significant amount of time researching the coilover aftermarket for the MB R230 series. Out of the 4 possible options I considered, Silvers Neomax appeared to me to provide the best performance at a reasonably competitive price.
I was not wrong!
Similar to other reviewers experience, there is only a minor difference in ride when compared to the ABC system (when working) when traversing rough road conditions. On reasonably smooth road, there is no difference. Another major advantage of the Silvers Neomax solution is that there definitely is no need to add sway bars. While I do not drive my car like a race car, I have had no adverse experiences in those instances when cornering hard, or coming to sudden stops (I did not select the Swift spring option).
The other big advantage is that Silvers Neomax have user-adjustable ride stiffness. Other options did not offer this. I have made a few adjustments since installation.
While I used to do my own auto maintenance in my younger days and would have attempted this conversion myself, my days of knuckle-busting and getting greasy are over. I, like others, enlisted the support of Gold Element Autoworks LLC to execute the conversion project. I was please to learn that Brandon at Gold Element also prefers Silvers Neomax, which further validated my selection decision. By him removing all the now-unnecessary ABC ancillary hardware, the vehicle dropped several hundred pounds.
The cost of the overall project was about 1.5 times as expensive as a typical single ABC repair job, plus my stress level from worrying where and when the ABC system would fail has dropped to zero
Extremely happy with the outcome.
