Hard to believe that the Classic Center doesn't have it or your dealer can't get it.

Mercedes has 0 in the US and 0 in Germany, also told me that it was something that would not be available any more from them. Honestly I do not think I tried classic parts center. Do you have a link?

By all means, check with the Classic Center

Mercedes-Benz USA - Contact Us - Classic Center

As a last resort, check the spring selections at Napa, Lowes (etc.) or even your local hardware store. You might find something close.

Or go to a salvage yard. Any 110 or 111 chassis (if you can find one) should have the spring.

Might be easier (and cheaper) if you just go to an auto parts store and see if they can match up something.
