Thank you all for the information and the opinions. It is good to know all available options.

Just to follow up with the Strutmasters update. I called and was told by the lady on the phone that they currently no longer offer the kit. She think they may be trying to redesign the kit but she is not sure. If they are to offer it at all again, which she is not sure either, it will be at least 2 to 3 months out. She also said that Strutmasters was the only company that conversion kit.

Has anyone tried to retrofit the Mercedes oem sl65 black series coilovers ? Wouldn't they work and be even better than the strut masters conversion ?

Anyone know how much they cost and the part numbers ? Perhaps they cost too much from mb

Have you asked yourself why Strutmasters is no longer offering the R230 setup or why, if it is offered again, it will be in a re-designed form?

Each strut costs about the same as a basic ABC strut.

Went with a re-manufacture Arnotts right rear shock from Parts Geek, and had a local Indy installed it. I did the fluid and filter change myself before install the new shock by following the a post in the forum, it was easier than I thought. The car suspension is good again, for now. Thank you all.

By the way I also discovered the windshield washer reservoir was leaking with a small crack, when I tried to fill it up with the fluid. With some work, I was able to slide it out (with the hoses still connected) after the front passenger wheel cover was removed, and glued/repaired the crack.

Welcome to the forum! Please take a moment to visit the User Control Panel and update your profile to include your car model and year, and your location (at least country). This information will then appear below your name and avatar on the left side panel next to each post you make. This will greatly help others to give you better information. If you are using the mobile version of the site, you will need to switch to the "full" version to get to the User Control Panel.

Now, what error codes do you have?

I got the conversion struts from CEIKA, You can adjust the height, no swaybars needed. Drove 140 mph speed, no problems.
