I have a 1993 300SD with about 119K miles
on it. The right front shock has just
started to leak.

Do you have any recommendations on a brand/
model of a shock to use or should I just
stick with the OEM?

I plan to keep the car for a long time.
Typically, I commute in the car about 3.5
hours a day on the highway.

Stay with the O.E. Bilsteins you will not be dissappointed. You pay a little more but it's worth it, trust me.

If it is just a minor seep, I have seen many give no problems for quite a while. Does it handle strangely? If so do the work, if not "if it ain't broke, don't fix it"?
HMMM Just a thought.

It is just a seep and the car handles fine.

I have a mechanic change the oil every
2,500 to 3,000 and we put the car up on
a lift and do a quick inspection while
the panels, etc. are off so it will be
easy for me to keep an eye on it.

Thanks again for the help. This is turning
into a great site.
