    Lorinser front struts for 500E?

    I came across a pair of Lorinser shock absorbers in Germany. They appear to have the correct part number for our cars. Does anybody have any knowledge about these shocks? Seller claims they are a bit firmer/harder than stock. Would they suit the standard suspension?

    Re: Lorinser shock absorbers?

    If this was back in the pre-merger days of MB AMG, and specific tuner packages often seen with the 126 chassis, I would say that it would be equivalent to a sport feel, for a lowered car. Keep in mind for the 126, this would be significant lowering from stock, as the running joke was dude... is the engine in your car, it sits so high! If I did not have new stock suspension and came on to these, I would buy them. Maybe Klink or others may know specifically.
