Price for W140 shocks

I was quoted roughly $500 for replacement of both rear shocks on '92 500SEL. Does this fall in line with the average? Parts will be OEM Mercedes Benz.

Actually sounds darn cheap if those are self leveling struts. They're almost $600 each through FastLane.

For the 140s without self leveling struts (a US spec 92 500SEL should have self leveling suspension), $100 each for Bilsteins is a decent price. Factor in shipping and installation and $500 is steep but not highway robbery.
