1994 400E springs into my 1987 300E

is there any advantage by putting the springs from a 1995 400E W124 into my 1987 300E 124 body?

will it make it any lower? sportier? which is what I am trying to achieve.

I was told that the front 400E springs will be thicker because it was meant to carry a heavier v8 engine. hence, it might make my 1987 ride harsh.

new bilsteins all around will also be installed.

It won't want your ride more harsh. It may lift your front end about half inch since they're heavier duty springs.
