Lowering the springs will bust your stock absorbers prematurely. Better to go for for the full kit...coilovers or B12 Bilstein.

I agree, even with a small amount of lowering, you should pair with better shocks. My W204 on H&R Supersport and Bilstein B8 shocks passed the wifes approval even when she was pregnant. For minimal lowering, the B12 kit which I think is Eibach springs and Bilstein B6 shocks will do well. Or you can buy H&R sport springs and Bilstein B6 shocks separate if you can get a better deal that way.

B12 uses Eibach springs & B8s.

Was on H&R lowering springs. Look nice but they don't work properly with stock shock absorbers. Bottoms out easily over humps.

Consider going for coilover instead. Most has height and damping adjustable to your liking.

Thanks everyone for the very constructive comments.

However no garage has coilovers for my W246 ( B class). I have PM a few site sponsors and all have come back with no available coilovers for W246.

Any recommendations?

Thanks in advance.

yea this is true.. my front absorber 'ee eee orrrh orrrh' after about 40k mileage with H&R spring.. first 30k was on stock.. total about 70k now..

Currently on H&R .. need to change the front shocks.. So B6 shocks is 1 of the more compatible one for H&R spring?

 

 

 

for changing of shocks, not necessary to change all 4 together right? Just changing the  front pair will do right? Correct me if i am wrong..

Don't! Change all 4 shocks. U r not getting the optimum performance.

B8s with H&R springs is a very good combo for both road & track use, It is definitely harder than your previous setup.

If you were to go Eilbach springs, it's a lot more comfortable for street use.

Hi guy need some experts help,

Anyone know HnR springs on 245/35/19 - 275/30/19

Will it hit the fender?

Thx..

U have not provided the full info for us to help. What ride is yours? What's the width & offset of your rims?

Brand of tyres?

I am pretty sure if you are using 19" rims now with low profile tyres with the new lower springs you will hit t fender and perhaps even experience rubbing of tyres against your wheel well.....with stock springs the entire look already very fierce... no need to lower further... just my opinion bro....plus the savings you can transfer to investment in other safety accessories like better brakes or tyres subsequently... or just put side for future use on the car

I'm driving w212 e300

Thx...

 

 

 

Should be quite safe....a bit tight at the rear. If there's rubbing, can roll the wheel arch a little.
