OEM absorber

Recommended Posts


I am new here and i have just bought a '07 C200.

I need to change the absorber but was contemplating whether to use back original or OEM.

1) Have any bros here ever used OEM for the FRONT absorber (including mounting, dust cover, stopper & bearing all OEM) combined with original absorber (full set) for the REAR.

2) is it advisable to use OEM parts for the charge (upper) & lower arm including the anti-roll bar linkage in combination with (1)

Thank you guys inadvance

Anyone have update on prices for those workshop genuine mercedes shocks plus mounting plus cover form germany?


I am going to change my front and rear and got quoted all in with labour is around $2000 to $2400 range.


Is it expensive for a merc e class 2010?



is it  normal for your shocks to be working fine even after 10yrs? My mileage now already over 100,000km...

I did the normal suspension test of pushing at letting it bounce.. but it is normal, 1 bounce finished.
