Suspension upgrade

Ok here it is i have a 1991 500SE (Euro model) and the rear suspension (stock) is gone my tires are worm more on the inside negative camber problem i guess it's time to change it. I wanna change the full suspension and i guess mind as well lower it so i am looking for a 1.5 inch drop with stock wheels 205/65/15. Any suggestion would be greatly appreciated

i don't know what mods you can get for a euro 500. have you done a "search" on this topic?

i think a place like perfomance products or carlson [sp] might give you a place to start.


just a thought...

welcome to, be careful it's VERY addicting!!!!!

I went with a 1991 300 SEL just so I could do suspension work. Not to mention I had bad luck with my 500 SEL. I went with 16" rims and the Eibach Pro kit. I am very happy with the results. The ride is not as "luxury" as before, but it definately help get ride of the Cadillac syndrome.
