Struts for the S430

Does anyone know where to get a great deal on the struts for the S430? Just got it used and I believe this is the only issue I am having right now. Any word from the experts?

Who diagnosed the rear struts

I assume they leak, since they are usually indestructable, The weakest link is usually the accumulators, that fail $100 each plus $150 labor and oil. The (struts) dont have to be replaiced in pairs. If the ride is bouncey its accumulators, if it goes to stiff it is accumulators and that could damage suspensionif you drive it that way a long time

I think their is an airmatic repair kit, that can fix the problem in talking with a guy yesterday. I'll take your information to my mechanic as well Peter. They are just leaking and that should be relatively easy to fix. I don't think I have nearly the problems that others have had with there MB. Heading to the dealer in the morning.

sorry

I did not see a vehicle year, "airmatic" is a subject onto itself, and most of us acknowledge that it bleeds down, but it is not one of those 140 issues with hydraulic suspension.

Thank you for acknowledging that...
