Good evening/morning chaps and chappesses. Simple question from a simple man: where's the best outlet to get replacement (aftermarket) rear shocks for a CLK320 '98? Not many, if any, list direct replacements for it. Bilstein does show units for this, but who in the UK has?
A name keeps cropping up on this site: Olly. Who is he and where does he exist -- is there a web site for this famed gentleman?
Thank you.

Thank you kindly for that. I'm looking at getting a pair of Monroe rear shocks, has anyone any views on this make?

Though I have never heard anything bad regarding Monroe, I personally go for a road going Bilstein shock as they were fitted from the factory, and should last another 10 years.

Monroe shox

No other reason to go for Monroe than easier to get hold of around these here parts at a reasonable price -- quoted 49+vat for gas units, although these have apparently been superseded by another part number. The supplier will tell me tomorrow.
