FITS THE FOLLOWING all 123 chassis from 1977-1985 which include the 230, 240D, 240TD, 280E, 280CE, 300D, 300CD and 300TD.
Make the front end of your 123 ride like new again. If you car has a lot of body roll or the front end is bouncing more than it use to it is time to replace your shock absorbers. Experts agree do not use anything other than original Bilsteins! How can you know if you have the real thing? Look under your car and if your shocks are white, blue, or any color other than black you have imitations. Also look to see if you have any wetness around the top of the shock barrel. If so they are beginning to leak and will fail soon.
I am offering these at an unbelievable price for the pair. And I will include a picture instruction sheet in common English on how to install these yourself. You will need a floor jack, jack stands and common hand tools. You will need one special 10mm socket that can be purchased separately if you don't have one in your tool box.
