shock absorber replacement


Recommended Posts

Hi, would like to check if anyone here got shock absorber replacement by c&c for W204? Mine feels quite crushy and not handling the unevenness of the road well but I am not sure if c&c would replace them under warranty. How much does it cost to replace it at c&c if it is not covered under warranty? Is it better to do the replacement outside?

Mine feels softer and more bouncy as compared to initial. When going over uneven roads at higher speed will feel that the car shakes alot. There is also some tick tick sound when going over small humps at low speed. Sent in to MB workshop to check but was told everything Ok.

Anyway changing absorbers can solved the problem stated, provided is the right setup/type.

In the end both parties might get the same result.... due to personal preference... :D

My ride is W212 E200 -year 2011 with about 80k mileage.

Find it a little hard and bumpy during braking.

I was quoted by C&C for shock absorbers at $4300.00 c/w GST less 10 to 15% off.

Wow C&C premium like getting higher, I just change my shock outside to Bilstein B16 for less than that as my ride was too bouncy after > 3 years. But my was a W204.

Any bros can recommend a set of basic coilover as my stock absorbers dying on me liao. Not looking at those racing type, something basic more for "looks". Is for W204 C180 coupe. Can advise the price too?

After holding off  for 6 months, it is time to change my shocks as car is getting a bit hard.

My Ride is W212 E200 Year 2011 - Mileage 100KM.

To save some cost, Intend to buy from Stockist and get a workshop to do the fitting. 

Can any bro recommend a reliable workshop.

shocks are wear and tear, no matter how you argue with them.

 

coil overs are the best!

Compare to many years ago, our sg road standard is getting bad to worst.

 

Contractor digging up on road and then anyhow patch back...doesn't even care if the patch is flat/even or not.

 

Making our road un-even and bumpy, no different from driving cross-country.

 

Maybe because these workers thinking "so long cover-up can already, not need for qc". 

 

Is there a gov QC department doing inspection after the road-work to certify that it is within acceptable standard?

 

If not, we have to replace our shock absorber more frequent.
