Hello
I have a 55 plate c220 cdi coupe with sports suspension.

Im being quoted £120 to £150 per front shocker, they are much cheaper for the none sport suspension, my question is will they fit ?

The car is my wifes asda car and never gets driven hard so I presume we dont need the benefit of gas shocks ?

Thanks from Paul

Hi Paul thats big money!!
I would suggest you fit the correct ones thoug, send me your VIN, I sell some 2 year guarantee ones that I am sure will be lots cheaper than the price you have been quoted.

It is best to replace with what the car came with as the springs and rear shocks and springs will be sport too.

......Also, shocks from MB are one of those 'heavy discountable' items so you should get some genuine ones for good money.

Hey fridgeman you have another post here?

Are you sure its the shocks? As Olly stated, check the other parts first, they are common for faulting there, shocks are normally quite durable.
You have said there is no misting or leaks from them, so why replace?
