WTB: H&R springs For W124

I am looking for a good set of spring to stiffen up the handling on my 300TE. I know some of you may be questioning this, but would like better handling, so am looking to buy a good set of stiff springs.

Please let me know.

Justin,,, I put a 500E rear sway bar on the back of the TE, cut 4 linear inches out of the front springs and put 17"s with AMG's and it handles pretty darn good. Take a look http://www.peachparts.com/shopforum/attachments/mercedes-benz-wheels-tires/20915d1094683276-got-my-new-amgs-today-new-tes-amgs.jpg

That looks mighty fine. I like the look of the AMG rims on the W124s. How does the SLS in the rear handle the swaybar?? Also, how much did you pay for it??

Would the swaybar with springs stiffen it up?? I has quite a bit of bodyroll when turning, and the suspension is 3 years old.

Larger sway bars will reduce the body roll, stiffer springs will firm things up even more. Why not check out the factory Sportline springs & sway bars? A set of Sportline springs should be about $300 (I think) plus installation... you can do it yourself if you rent the proper springs compressor.

Sway bar specs are here:

(top 2 files for specs & prices)


I've got the 'limo' front bar and 500E rear bar on my car. Would like to go for the 20mm rear (W210 H&R) but haven't gotten around to it yet.
