Adjustable works just fine. I Just put shocks on all four corners of my car. When you get to the front use an allen wrench and a box end wrench and you should be able to get the top nut off no problem.
Thanks guys! Sorry for the newbie questions but I have never owned a Benz and it has been over 10yrs since I owned a car which required any sort of work from me.
I figured it out an used an adjustable and worked like a charm. It drove beautifully on the test drive after installation. I have the fronts to do now, but will need to wait a week since I forgot to order mount (they are all cracked on top), new bumps, and boots. I hate putting anything old back on the car, especially rubber.
The shocks looked like they were the originals put on the car (maybe not), leaking and nasty. See pics!
Yeah those probably were the originals. The rears on mine had been changed to old school KYB's and the fronts were still original. They were in surprisingly good working order though. One of the rears was completely blown, made any sort of tight corner or off angle bump a bit scary.
