The 16V engine weighs only 25 lbs more than the 8V. Much of the weight difference is due to body moldings, things like power seats & leveling suspension. Even more sound deading material.
Rear Eibach springs should be the same on all W201 chassis. MB installes different springs on almost every different car, even different year models use different springs from the factory.
