Shock absorbers and struts are parts of the vehicle suspension that absorbs shocks from the bumps and potholes and keep your four wheel drives' ride smooth and stable. However, the vehicle suspension becomes worn out over time and needs to be replaced. To help your 4WD take a beating day after day, Bilstein Australia has been helping numerous customers to find replacement shock absorbers as a perfect upgrade for their 4WD.
The Mercedes-Benz ML-Class has been in production since 1997. This mid-size, luxury, crossover SUV, produced by the German automaker Mercedes-Benz, came up with their second generation in 2005 under the codename W164 which had new features including a 7G-Tronic seven-speed automatic transmission, optional Active Curve-Illuminating Bi-Xenon headlights and an adjustable-height air suspension.
If the factory fit rear spring struts on your Mercedes-Benz ML W164 Air Suspension (2005 -->) are not enough for an effective ride comfort, it is a good practice to replace the rear shock absorbers with Bilstein B6 Offroad shock absorbers. With 40 years of industry experience, Bilstein Australia has produced front and rear replacement shocks for just about every vehicle including the Mercedes-Benz ML W164 Air Suspension (2005 -->). Implementing Bilstein's gas pressure technology and monotube construction, the easy to bolt-in rear BE5 G698 is a significant improvement over the factory fit shock absorber, reducing the overall suspension wear.
