Already have the Bilstein damper ordered from FCP Euro along with a spare CPS.

I've noticed since it's gotten warmer the car is tramlining much more than before and now really has a tendency to wobble when going over bumps. This makes some sense to me as a warmer damper would naturally have more travel in it.

Hoping the damper will clear some of that up. It's an inexpensive and easy place to start at least.

Warmer weather means warmer oil and warmer oil is thinner and passes through the valves easier.

If you want the OEM original, then you want the Stabilus 1244630432 (Part #: STB-SG203004)

The Bilstein 18-140651 is the same match to the Febi 01261 which is the 800 N Eject Force.
Also, the Stabilus
1244630432 is the Mercedes Original OE Part #

I changed my stabilus for Febi/Bilstein 01261. Old was totaly broken (oil leak).
Now is much much better. Car/steering wheel is more comfortable and stable on uneven roads.
