FITS THE FOLLOWING all 123 chassis from 1977 to 1985 which included the 230, 240D, 280E, 280CE, 300D and 300CD. (Does not fit station wagon models). The best way to upgrade the original ride and feel of your Mercedes is to replace your shocks with new HEAVY DUTY Bilsteins. There is no other shock that will perform as well.
These shocks will give you a firmer ride than the standard comforts and are better if you often carry heavy loads in you Mercedes. If your car has a lot of body roll or the rear end is bouncing more than it use to it is time to replace your shock absorbers. Experts agree to not use anything other than original Bilsteins! How can you determine if you do not 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. Try pushing up and down on the rear end. If it does not stop immediately when you cease pushing then your shocks are probably bad. I am offering this set of two (2) Rear shocks at an unbelievable low price (we recommend replacing in pairs). Even if you think your shocks are ok you will be amazed at the improvement when you install these new ones.
