I have 2004 MERCEDES BENZ S430 4MATIC, MY CARIS SITTING REALLY LOW IN THE FRONT. I'm trying to replace the struts. I want to order them myself. But I dont know which ones are the right ones.

What seems to make the problem better or worse? I'm driving it right now
How long have you had this problem? 3 months, couldnt afford to fix dealer is charging $3000
Key is locked in trunk. trunk latch does not work. manual trunk open does not work
locked out of is now open...key is in trunk and cannot get into trunk with in car latch or trunk button
wipers don't close all the way
Every couple of secs car brakes by itself.
Was thinking about replacing the Brake Switch??
car has a shake when pulling away cold. shifts into second with a slip. car has slight shake until it warms up then runs well. Even when warm and you rev engine you fee a shake. New plugs, mass flow sensor and new coolant temp sensor
LED Temp Gage "Outdoors" no longer lights up. Also the display panel / computer shows right side passenger headlight "not working," but it DOES!
plus the back seat head rest wont go down using the automatic button and automatic door locks dont work. Is this a fuse problwm?
i noticed the car was low in the back when it sat. not big deal, fills up when i run. the car used to "hiss" when i would shut the door, now it doesnt. when i was detiailing it with aggressive power washer to underside, i came out the next morning and battery dead. charged it and sat in car when i turned it off. something in the radio area kept running for 5 minutes and then turned off. the power lock to the doors wont go down into the locked position. when i manually lock then press unlock on the for it takes 2 times for them to rise. trunk wont open either at the door switch, the fob or the latch at trunk...
