Hello all!

I am trying to find out which is the maker of the R172 original Mercedes suspensions. Is it Bilstein? And if so, which model please for the R172 with the normal/standard suspensions (not the Sport ones).

Also, what are my options for replacing the rear ones? Only the original suspension or there is another/cheaper option?

Thank you!

I would say go with Bilstein B04/B06 for normal suspension and B08 for lowered AMG suspension. Cheaper is buy **** dampers. Cheapest is do nothing.
