Re: W203 shock absorbers - brand Xperience wanted
My rear absorber is slightly leaking, planning to change soon. My mechanic said the brand is Eibach, cost maybe up to 2k. Not sure whether this price is reasonable. I could have been conned. Any suggestion anybody?

2K is definitely high...unless you have a specific need to remain with Eibach..

Try Bleistein..

All my Mercs has been on Bleistein...Ok je...

Eibach mainly manufactures springs for OEM and aftermarket/performance applications. Personally, Bilstein & Eibach is a perfect match. I did try Koni & Apex set-up for my w202 and found the set up disappointing...There are many suspension manufactures such as KW, H&R, bilstein, Ohlins, Apex etc...

Bilstein ranges anything from RM1,800 to RM3,800 for a fixed shocks (a pair). Coil over/adjustables are generally above RM7k as its configuration can be customised to the driver's liking..So it depends on what your current application i.e whether it's already lowered or standard and where you plan to go with this..

Go for Titan bro, RM2,800.00 for 4pcs abs and use back your old coil springs...just tell them to set the abs to your preference...either hard, firm, soft...no regrets..

All my conti cars on Eibach and Bilstein. Maybe not the best but it is affordable to me and the performance to my liking.

1.)For normal applications, can't go wrong with Bilstein/Sachs/Koni/Titan (dampers) and Eibach/H&R (springs) combo.

No need to change springs if you're satisfied with yer current set-up.

If you want to go slightly 'sporting' and with lowered springs...the above named fellas also.

2.)If you've done some mods to yer car and want 'serious sporting', take a look at coilovers set-up from Bilstein and KW or Titan.

3.)If you got money to spend on the best there is and you TRACK your car(s), look up Ohlins/Motons and JRZs. Ultimate set-up for any car on the road. But will cost you serious coin...

Your choice at the end of the day. I have experience with all set-ups and am currently using No.1 for my Benz and No.3 for my other cars.

Thanks all for the feedback.

Will try B6 from Bilstein as I have
no intention to change springs cos
my front tyres are oversized [235 instead
of 225 and scrape the wheel wells].
Tyres are still quite new so downsizing
would be a waste of ringgit.
