First time going to replace an air strut assembly on a 2011 Mercedes-Benz GL450, is there any difference as with a traditional strut on other vehicles other than the the air lines and sensor connection? 

Thanks in advance

OKay

 

I am not sure what you mean if it can replaced like any 'other' car. since there are so many different kinds of cars, I'll just walk you through the basic steps on how to prepare the strut on your Mercedes.

1.  Engaged parking brakes and park your car on a strictly level surface. no Bumps

2. Do not take off the lug nuts, just loosen them a bit for now

3. Raise your car, only from the corner, where there is a problem

4. Remove the fender line from the wheel well

5. Disconnect the electricals

6. Remove the bolt from the strut and take it off as well as all wires

7. Remove the air spring

8. Connect a new strut and close everything back

 

To be hones, if you previously used a Honda or some japanese car, this process will be slightly different.
