Rubber suspension mount

Hi all, any ideas where I can get the pictured item, as it is not sold by Mercedes separately and I would have to purchase the complete damper, which is expensive for a Ł10 part

Used old or new Hose pipe section will do the trick .

The proper sleeve eventually splits and comes off any way over a period of time they all do .....
and many manufactures dont even have them fitted .

I also searched everywhere for this rubber, but could not find them, other than with the shocks.


I purchased some of this


360477649332


Sorry can not remember which diameter..


and put it around the first coil on the spring, overhanging spring by about 10mm


Still in place after a year.


Did do both sides, so everything was even.


Might have the rubber from the other side if you are desperate to fit original part.

If you could find the old rubber mount, I would be willing to pay for it, as it would save me having to do both wheels again. Thanks
