People seem to get caught buying the HD Bilsteins from time to time. I got a set for my former 300SD and hated them. They were so hard you could feel every little bump/crack/rock in the road. In a car that was more of a high performance sort of vehicle I could see it, but not in an S class.
Knowing what I do now I always go for the standard Bilstein. On a related note, a dealer tech I know says that rear shocks rarely ever wear out. He said of all the (stock/original) rear shocks he’s replaced over 20+ years he’s hardly ever found a set that warranted replacement. -D > On Apr 10, 2018, at 9:36 AM, Meade Dillon via Mercedes > <firstname.lastname@example.org> wrote: > > I put some KYB struts and shocks in SWMBO's Infiniti, and they ride almost > like rocks, WAY too stiff for me.
