I'm completely confused. Rear shocks in my 190D (1985) seem to be upside down with the rods attached to the control arm and protected with rubber bump stops (kinda like the front struts on top). The bump stops sit in "nests" within the control arm, so that's a factory design, not a chop job. Haynes, dealer, my certified MB tech, and thebenzbin.com don't know what to make of it. I don't want to order new shocks w/o confirming the right part, and I cannot find the rubber stops anywhere, anyway.
