Customer Question

Hi Pete I have a 2015 ml350 it does not have air suspension but I wish it did, it's too spongy and rocks in the wind. Can't find any aftermarket shocks and is there a way I can stiffen the ride some also I live in the country so want to keep the ground clearance

I found a few places that talk about lowering springs and bilstein shocks. That will improve handling and ride. I'll keep looking see what I can come up with.
