Cole, if a w221 with airmatic was sitting 20mm low left rear corner only (and has for 2 years0). yet never drop and will rise and fall with modes / lift option. what's the best way to level it up?

It has front left and front right individual adjustment in Star but only one central level sensor on the back.

Looking at the w220 set up, as there is no link between rear shocks all I can think is to drop the rear using Star and let it refill evenly?

Do you think this would work?

Another tech suggested there could be individual level sensor inside each shock? or is that only for ABC equipped vehicles?

Yeah looks fiddly to be honest....athe arm itself is o.k but the bracket that it clips onto on the car looks to have rusted away. Do the new ones come complete with both ends or can you just buy the part that you bolt on the car then reattach the ball joint from the rod. If that all make sense lol.
