93SL 600 Rear suspension

Have a loud drum like sound when going over bumps eg; speed bumps. Comes from the right rear suspension. Mechanic says shock and a bushing is defective. Shock(Active Damping) is $ 525!. Before I say ok does this sound like the answer.

yes- these could be the culprits

>you could always take the car to another tech for 2nd opinion
> you could also ask the current tech to put the car on the lift and show you these worn components/ inspection (visual)

if this turns out to be the cause, you may wish to replace these pieces on both sides to restore equivalent performance

hope this helps
