Suspension help please

Hello All.
It has come time in my 1990 300E's life to replace the ball joints in my steering and maybe a drag link. Is it possible to upgrade these parts to a sport suspension as apposed to using OEM parts. Your feedback is appreciated!

The only difference in sportline vs. standard 124 suspension is the springs, swaybars and shocks. The components you list are the same in either suspension system.

Have a great day,

Larry,
thanks for the speedy reply!

I was refering to upgrading the mentioned parts but not limited to sportline suspensions. Are there any parts that can be used instead of OEM for better performance or handling? Or should I just replace them with Orginals?

Thanks again

Check the cars tab and look at the saportline section.

You wills ee its not just springs, shocks and swaybars, it included new suspension bushing as well.

Overall it is a great upgrade to any 124 car.

Myself I went for aftermarket, I prefer stiffer than sportline has.

I would look into the full sportline upgrade, you wont be disappointed with it.

Talk to JCE about it, he did it to his car, and he can tell you the differences between before and after.
