I'm curious which spring compressor you MB techs use for the rears in a W203. I have a brannick that I can use for the fronts. I also can do the rears without a spring compressor but would feel much better using the tool MB suggests. I tried the one that Performance Products rents (Sir Tools) but that one has a hex shape on the lower end that won't allow it to go through the access hole. A MB special tool part number would be ideal.
My dealer said he will order any tool I want, but it's up to me to find the part number.
