SLK200, SLK 230, SLK230 Kompressor, SLK320, SLK32 AMG.
Typically requires 5 rams with hydraulic lines for complete upgrade of convertible soft top lifting system.
We have two order methods: rebuilding the cylinder(s) you send in, or sending you a complete set up-front from our stock (slightly higher charge, plus a refundable core deposit apply).
Please note: it is highly advisable to upgrade the trunk cylinders and the main lift cylinders in pairs. When considering the labor involved in removing one cylinder compared to a full set of cylinders, it is usually best to have all cylinders upgraded at the same time. The reason is, the majority of the labor involved is in removing access panels, and once the panels are removed, it is comparatively not much more work to remove all cylinders at once. Remember, the rebuild service for all cylinders at once costs about as much as a single replacement cylinder, and you get a much better, longer lasting product...
