Yes, Mercedes uses drum-type parking brake shoes on their rear disc brake systems. The rotor has an integral drum and the shoes work just like a regular drum system except they are actuated by a cable. You don't want those.

That's a decent price for the cylinders, certainly better than the price I was quoted for the OEM part. You notice that they specify a "later type" bore size. Measure your old cylinders before you order them just to be sure they are correct.
