Hey guys, I need new struts or shocks (idk what there called exactly) for a 2005 c230 kompressor, what after market ones would you guys recommend, that is either in the same price range or cheaper then genuine Mercedes, that will give the same/similar or better ride ?
Or should I go with genuine Mercedes ? Let me know your thoughts or past experience

I’m a big fan of Bilstein. They are often the OEM supplier anyway, the other one is usually Sachs-Boge.

Just checked at FCP Euro. Generally their "OE" or "OEM" recommendations are pretty good. Note that the "OE" designation means, "that's who actually makes it for MB."


Genuine-MB is considerably more expensive, even at the online discount.
