FS: W220 2005 S430 4MATIC Front Struts - working!
I was told by the mechanic that the creaking noise when going over a bump was from the front struts so I ordered brand new struts from Mercedes ($1500). After the install and the test drive he found out that the lower control arm bushings are doing that creaking noise and not the struts. Now I cannot return the new struts and have the used ones at home with no use for them.
It has been raining and therefore the picture shows the dirty. I'll clean them before I ship them to you.
I would like to sell them both for $600 shipped in US. That's $300 per strut...
Original part numbers are 2203202238 and 2203202138.
