Does '83 380 SEL have self-leveling...

suspension? I think I may be getting a sag, but then again it may be just an optical illusion depending on where it sits, surroundings, etc.

Thanks!

Unless you have a very special 380SEL, it doesn't have levelling suspension. Is there a reservoir with hydraulic fluid in the engine bay?

Lots of discussion on 126 sag in the archives. I never tire of telling folks to check the subframe mounts but a lot of people are content to put spacers in the rear springs.

Are you an allpar.com guy or did the merger mean MB and Mopar forums are now joined?

Us cars didn't have self-leveling, but I have seen euros of all designations with self-leveling. I think it could be added to about eveything.

No, not an allpar.com guy. I havent even heard of it. I just use the same username on many things (I am also moparmike @ benzworld.org too). I just like old mopar, like a '69 Dodge Daytona Charger. I also want a Dodge Magnum SRT-8. It has a supercharged HEMI. I have thought more than once about trading my Benz for one, when they come out.

Oh, thanks for the replys...

Thanks for that. It helps rule out the more expensive stuff if and when it happens.

Later,
