    08 e class dampers

    So my e class sits very high on the front so I pulled it apart today to move the spring seats down using the c clips on the dampers but I found one dampers did not have any groves to relocate the c clip and the other is starting to weep. So I guess I am into a pair of new front dampers. Were...

    Hi, been looking into my options for refreshing the dampers on my 211 and wondered if someone can confirm that the rear dampers are definitely conventional, non-electric ones.

    S211 Airmatic Dampers

    Hi, The damping is weakening on my S211 at the back. In a normal steel sprung car I'd just order new Bilstein dampers or equivalent. In this case I suspect I need to order the (B4?) Bilstein Airmatic strut (?) In which case I'm looking at c £440/side? If all the above is correct...

    How long should the dampers (shock absorbers) in W211 Airmatic front struts last?

    I have a 150,000 mile E320 CDI with Airmatic. It suffers what I think to be a rough ride and is very sensitive to wheel balancing issues. I had the opportunity to follow and observe my car from another today, driving next to it I could see that the front wheels (especially driver-side)...

    Hi all, I'm going to replace the suspension on my 1990 W124 230e as soon as I get a bit of spare cash. It currently has the uprated springs, which give it the higher ride height and is very hard, but bouncy...if that makes sense! I'm wondering if anyone can advise me on two things: 1) The...
