Howdy,

I purchased a set of Sachs 311367 front shocks for my 2002 ML320 & need a diagram or pics as to how the mounting kit is assembled.


I assembled the Karlyn mounting kit that came with the shocks by comparing the original shock I pulled out. When I assemble the kit it is not possible to screw the top bolt on & shock is fulled extended.

Any tips or diagrams?


Thanks,
BTB

Are wheels on the ground?

Perhaps you should jack up the suspension arm and place a jack stand. This will emulate the situation where the wheel is on the ground. WotG would work too I suppose but it could make installation too difficult.

I jacked up the suspension arm while doing my fronts recently. Experts please correct me if I am wrong.

(Note the car should continue to be jacked at the frame. The suspension jack is only for the suspension not the car).
