    I would like to replace the shock absorbers on my 2014 Mercedes-Benz ML 550, Can you recommend Bilstein Shocks? I have read so many good reviews about it.

    It will stiffen your ride, if that's no issue then Bilsteins are excellent shocks. I would go for the Sachs as I prefer the softier ride.

    Why do you want to replace them?

    Not quite the answer to your question, but my R Class's rear shockers came from here https://aerosus.co.uk/
    Mine has Airmatic & MB wanted £400 each but I bought the pair for about the same money.

    Bilstien B4 versions are OEM stiffness (B6 are harder).

    I'd still go for Boge or Sachs though as they're generally cheaper. Check ebay.

    If you fancy another make, try Monroe, they've been around for many, many years and I've just changed by rears for a set. They were about £100 the pair. so time will tell. All I know is the car has never handled better....

    Not available for the front unfortunately.

    You could see if Koni are available for it - adjustable so you can set them how you want them.
