    The standard shocks on my ML55 2001 are becoming a little tired..

    Going to replace the front and hopefully the rear..There seams to be lots on the market
    so looking for some advise on which to go for.

    I don't really want to pay dealer prices..Although i did read somewhere that finding the right
    rear shocks can be a problem..

    Any help out there please...

    I wouldn't go past Bilsteins, particularly on such a beast. Nice and firm and good body control.

    Worth checking on prices ex USA too. Often very much cheaper.
