WTB: W123 diesel Vogtland springs

Hello folks! I'm in the search for a set of Vogtland springs for a 300d w123. Anyone with a set for sale?

Thanks!

Looking for springs? Welcome to the club, I have been waiting for a set for a while now. I think everybody that purchased has put them on, or sold them already. There was talk about another (corrected) set a while back, but I haven't heard anything new on that for a while...I guess it's not happening either.

Well, that's a shame...

I'm having troubles with the rear end sitting too low. I've been flirting with the idea of getting a set of rear HD springs for a W126 and adjust their length as required. There's an example of the springs I'm considering here

Any thoughts?

I've got a pair for the rear as the fronts went on my wagon and I'm fearful of messing with the rear of a wagon's SLS. I'm leaving for back to NY in a day so I could not ship them until early nov to anyone interested.

I have a w123 and a w126 (which these ebay springs cover). I don't know about height, and I didn't take a measurement tool to them, but they look like they are pretty close to the same diameter (which is the important thing).

Don't quote me on this, but I am guessing the ebay springs for the S-class cars would be a little stiffer too. That should give you more room for modification to your liking. I am just guessing though as I don't have experience with that.

MTU Power, thanks for the offer. However if I change the springs for Vogtlands, I'd rather get the 4 of them.

Lowriderdog, that's what I'm guessing. I opened another post in the Diesel Discussion regarding this matter, we'll see what happens...
