I presume you are talking shocks here. Correct? I would go to AutoHausAZ or any of the other sites that advertise on this forum to shop. I have had a great experience with them, good selection, quick delivery and there is a feature that explains a bit about each manufacturer and how they may be differentiated from MB equipment.

I bought the OEM shocks but they were in the $90 range and they were really easy to install. There are only two bolts and there are loads of info on this forum as to how to do it.

Good Luck !

i am not in the state so i dont think i can save much by ordering from autohaus...
just wanna know more info regarding the front shocks...
did anyone try the harder one? or it is a must for V8/V12 coz the engine is very heavy?
