 1989 Mercedes 300TE rear shock retrofit

After reading the forums here on what to do with my 89 wagon failed rear shocks, I researched alternatives to the hydro system as the value of the car did not warrant new units.
I went on the Monroe website and found a pair of air shocks that fit with minimum hassle. they are part # MA705 and cost $57.00/pair
You need to drill a 7/16 hole in the lower A-arm and do a little grinding/hammering around the shock tunnel for clearance on the upper shock tube. Took me about 3 hours to complete and the car is now better than before. You can set the ride height anywhere you want it, ( I use 90 psi).
This works and can save a lot of wagons a premature death as the new hydro units ( and all the other parts that go bad ) are expensive.
