RENNtech | W463 | G-Wagon | Performance Shocks | 2nd Generation



We are proud to announce the release of our second generation G-Wagon performance shock system. As any G-Wagon owner knows, the vehicle is an incredible off-road machine, but suffers from a less than comfortable ride and lack luster handling when spending its time on-road. Our brand new, completely re-engineered suspension system is unlike anything else currently on the market for the G-Wagen.

RENNtech has found the perfect balance between on-road comfort and off-road performance with our specially designed shocks exclusively for the G-Wagon. These shocks dramatically improve the daily driving comfort and handling around town without sacrificing durability.

Our performance shocks feature precision, six way adjustable compression, offering a wider range of adjustment and optimal vehicle ride quality. The turn of the dial on the externally mounted reservoir instantly adjusts ride quality to suit your individual preferences or performance needs.

Our high performance shocks are constructed of an aircraft grade aluminum body and alloy steel shaft for reliability in the most demanding of driving environments. An externally mounted reservoir makes shock dampening changes extremely easy and does not require the use of any tools or a lift.

The full set is priced at $4,880.

Ensuring all the power from RENNtech’s performance upgrades is transmitted to the road, RENNtech developed a suspension kit to improve both vehicle handling and performance. The four-corner suspension kit allows full ride height adjustability and lowering of up to 1.5” for the front and rear. The combination of the RENNtech coil-over suspension with the OEM dampers gives the AMG GT-S performance handling without losing the daily-driver comfort and keeping the OEM electronic damper control retained.
