1993 190 E 2.6 and 1992 300E
My '86 190E is getting pretty bouncy. What would more likely cause that problem, the struts/shocks, or the springs? Is there anyway to check on my car w/out lifting it or bringing it somewhere?Airdrew said:I have KYB's and they were a upgrade compared to the OEM's and are not expensive. You can go on e-bay and pick up struts and shocks for about $230.00 including shipping. I had KYB's on my Jetta and were a good feel.

bouncy equals struts, low and stiff... springs..
you my friend, rule :thumbsup:crazydrummerboy said:i was actually gonna post the same question, but looked first.
Yes, I assume they're stiffer than normal 190 shocks. They are made by Bilsteins. I don't know how they compare to say Bilstein HD's.. but the AMG's should have different settings would be my guess. I lucked out in finding the shocks through a friend, as a result, I got a good price(still expensive) as well. I don't know what these typically sell for as they are very rare to find, even used. I paid more than wha t you'd expect to for normal shocks, but I'm not restoring a normal 190E either.milosz87 said:you my friend, rule :thumbsup:
Im guessing the AMG shocks are alot stiffer then normal 190 shocks. and how much do they go for anyway. i want to give my car a really stiff ride but cant really find a cup kit or coilover system that have then for my car.
