Thumbs up SDL rear springs?

I am ordering springs for my SDL here and well, there are two part numbers.

One is from Meyle, the other is from Suplex. Also I found Lesjofors...

116 324 11 04

116 324 08 04



Ideas/Opinions.

You already know my opinion.

Any OEM spring is not going to give the SDL sufficient height, especially when loaded.

I recommend you spend equivalent money and get a set from Coil Spring Specialities that give a ride height that is 1" greater than stock.

Mine is 1.5" greater than stock and it's a bit too tall with the 19mm pads.

Have you gone through your rear suspension yet?

Maybe I'll do that then see how the butt-sag is before jumping on springs.
