16V Rear Springs

Hi,
I would like to replace the rear springs and shocks on my 1986 2.3-16V (auto) with the springs and shocks from a 1992-93 190E "sportline". I would like to maintain the stock ride height. Can anybody with a MB chassis manual give me the part number for these parts so I can order them from here or the dealer?
Thanks

Thanks Benzmac. I'll go ahead and call my dealer for these springs. Would you happen to know the part number for the rear shocks?
Thanks again

Call 1-888-333-4642 (toll free in the US) and ask for Phil.
Hours: Mon - Fri, 10am - 9pm ET

Do yourself a favor, call Phil, not the dealer.

16Vs have the hydro-pneumatic rear-ends, are you planning on gutting all that?

Thanks to MBDoc for the part numbers on the springs and shocks. Brian16V - Yes, I do plan on removing the entire self leveling suspension on my car. I'm getting tired of replacing the accumulators every 6 years or so and the hydraulic fluid every 2 years. Parts are on order. I'll let you all know how it turns out.
Thanks for the inputs.
