MANY, MANY THANKS TO SNIBBLE for pointing me to a contact of his in Poland who had a pair of NOS AMG Struts for an SLS car. I already have the front AMG shocks so that is that. Hopefully next week the Springs will be in and that will make a Full AMG Suspension.

Many Thanks Again Snibble! A true Gentleman!

Pics to follow of the Mounting. That should fix my stance once and for all with that "True AMG" stance.

Congrats!!!

I met with a South Australian member of our Aussie MB site on Thursday for a couple of beers before he got his 'plane home. He has recently bought a 1983 500 SEC AMG tuned (engine and suspension) in Germany, imported through India(!) to Australia, and showed me all the documentation to prove it's provenance. An amazing amount (and cost) of work done to the car.

Originally owned by an Aussie touring car racing driver (sadly killed doing what he loved) he is now the 3rd owner.

I am hoping he will join us here and post up his car.

IIRC, the rear shocks on his SLS system from AMG were around 1500 DM back in 83!!!
