W210 suspension

Any advantage to putting W210 E55 AMG shocks on a W210 300 turbodiesel? Stock springs, stock rideheight, but I would definitely like a bit more of a performance shock without getting too harsh in the ride like moving to Bilstein Sports or even something aftermarket. Will be moving to 17" wheels at some point. Thoughts?

Bilstein Sport is a shorter shock for use with lowered springs. Not appropriate for stock ride height applications. Same is true of the E55 shocks. What you want is Bilstein HD. Firmer than stock, but still stock height.

FYI they don't call them TC/HD/Sport any more. They're called B4/B6/B8 now and they changed all the part numbers, just to confuse the heck out of anyone who wants to buy their products.

I'm very, very familiar with the Bilstein lineup. That wasn't my question though.


So the E55 shocks are shorter than 300D shocks? Interesting. Good to know on that part. Thanks.
