I installed new dealer shocks and they dropped car 1/2" all around (measured from ground to fender cutout, I don't have control arm angle tools). Old shocks were Bilstein Comfort shocks with 72Kmi suggested weak by local MB mechanics (car very sensitive to winds, jumps over at bridges). Folks around here say shocks shouldn't change height. New springs appear to be approx. 3/16-1/4" taller than old springs. Your thoughts?
(Rear links 10 months ago, fr lower control arms 2 mos, steering linkage tight & <1yr , wheel bearings tight 4 mos, just installed shocks/struts & now installing rear subframe mounts, springs are last to be changed)
