Is it possible to lower a 116 (450 SE)? The car just sits a lot higher than any other I have ever seen. I am unable to find a spring set for it. Any Clues!

Good luck! I think the only solution to this one is to have Eibach custom wind you a set of springs, etc...Nobody really modifies the W116, although I am considering rallying one

Thanks, for the reply. The engines are really strong. I was hoping to make it a little sportier and better handling. Nice cars if you can keep gasoline in them.
