seriously, get yourself some new springs. Call Coil Spring Specialties in St. Marys (?) KS. They may be able to rework the old springs or make new ones from thicker wire like they did for my old 220.
'95 E320 Wagon my favorite road car. '99 E300D wolf in sheeps body, '87 300D Sportline suspension, '79 300TD w/ 617.952 engine at 367,750 and counting!
