help needed C230 coil spring
my 2002 c230 coupe's front left coil spring just broke and others are about to as well. I'm consider the trade off of installing OEM coil springs or performance lowering coil spring (e.g. Eibach or H&R). Here are my concerns.
1) someone tells me if I choose Eibach or H&R, I need to adjust/replace some other parts as well. Which parts are those? are those necessary? what if I just install Eibach or H&R w/o those? are harm to the car?
2) Is Eibach better compared H&R? I check in the forum, most people think Eibach gives a better ride but lowered both front and rear the same level, where H&R does a little better by lowering rear less.
3) can I install the OEM ones myself and where can I get them? MBdealership?
Thanks a lot
