Bilstein Shocks


I am looking for new shocks for 88 W124 260e, and want the Comfort. However, my freind's partshop has also these V36-0191 (front) B36-1389 (rear) for W124.

I search the net and found the following:

Front Rear
W124 Comfort V36-0185 B36-1518
W124 Heavy Duty V36-0361 B36-1385
W124 Sportline V36-4053 B36-1612
W124 Tropen V36-0191 B36-1389

Have anyone used the specs for W124 Tropen? BTW, what is Tropen?

Re: Bilstein Shocks

I replaced my shocks recently with Bilstein Heavy Duty on W201.
They are really rough compared to the oem (we have bad roads)
I think I may put Eibach springs to compliment them. I just want a modest drop. It feels like the springs are working much harder now.

I'm not sure what tropen is. I would ask a Bilstein tech directly about that. I don't have their number, but if you don't find it, let me know and I'll get it for you.
