190e 2.3-16 valve lowering springs.

I just got a set of the Spax lowering springs from Rpi-equiped in Canada for 99 bucks. Can anyone do me a favor, can you measure the total length of your uninstalled lowering springs for the front? The reason I am asking is,I bought a set of Eibach springs and the fronts ended up being the wrong ones. I compared the Spax to the Eibachs I have sitting in my garage and they are the same exact length. When I had the eibachs on the car, it lowered the front totally down to the bump stops. There was literally no travel in the front. I am just afraid the Spax might do the same thing before I rent a spring compressor and end up with the same problem I had before. The 15's with a 205/55 tire fit, no rub at all. When I installed 17 inch Amg wheels with a 215/40, it literally hit the upper fender area.

Hey brother, let me know what you think of those spax springs.

I might have to get a set of those, I'm told they no longer make the Eibach pro kit for my 190E 2.6, I tried to order a set on monday and they gave me the bad news.

If you know of any place that has an Eibach pro kit for a 2.6L 190E please let me know, I'd love to grab up a new set.

It looks like I have to chose between either Intrax or Spax.

Most people don't have these but, if anyone does please tell me what I can expect.

Thank you very much guys.
