    What's the mileage on them? Photos etc available? Especially about the rear lower shock mounts?

    That would bring me back from the dead too... though I’d probably let them pass at that price, having just put on fresh hydrolegs. IMO, shocks is one of those things, like stereos, that have gotten better off the shelf in the last 25 years.

    Is there something special about these particular PNs? The pedestrian needs some help here...

    Re: Springs and shocks for E500/E60

    This setup (springs and shocks) were on Japan auction last week.
    If all springs and shocks are included in this above price, it is a very good deal cause the springs were in mint condition also, not even scratched.
    Congrats to the new buyer.

    E60 / AMG items, very pricey from Mercedes if available. I believe Dave posted recently the springs are available but expensive.

    Jon, this is the factory AMG suspension kit specifically designed for the 124.036 chassis, and was part of the full E60 AMG package. Very rare and difficult to obtain. The dampers had been NLA, but then MB did a small production run ~10 years ago IIRC. This is the only kit which firms up the suspension without excessive lowering. I think somewhere in the factory docs it says only 10mm lowering? All the aftermarket springs drop too much, and there are no 'performance' aftermarket dampers with the internal rebound limiting springs.

    Some parts were still available a few years ago, but now the front & rear springs are both NLA. I can't recall if the dampers are still available new or not, they *might* be.

    Re: Springs and shocks for E500/E60

    Owing to this car's near perfect 50/50 weight distribution, I convinced myself I really didn't need these when they were NLA. "The RENNtech rear subframe mod and Koni adjustable yellows + 18s are enough" I said. "Just tighten the yellows up front a bit and you'll be fine" the internal conversation went.

    I did that. And I stand by the internal conversation. But damn these are sweet...

    My 1992 500E has the E60 AMG suspension set up and it is awesome. The car is slightly lower again than E500E Sportline spec but not too low where it hits anything- just perfect. Handling capability is top end with the E60 suspension
