Aftermarket air strut

Hi,
Just wondering which brand should I be looking at for a replacement air strut (front) W164. Do I have to buy bilstein, or is there a cheaper alternative? Thanks!

Hi Toby and welcome to OZBENZ. You get what you pay for with these, the OE strut is Bilstein. Maybe see if Arnott's do them. They would be the only after market one I would recommend as they use the original Continental bags.
