Lowering kit / lowering springs???

I own a 1976 mercedes benz 300d the springs have gone bad and I am looking for new springs because the old ones have a shims holding the back up(the front is not sagging because car has a lighter ford v8) i would like to lower the car 1.25" to 1.50" to give it the apperance to match the engine. If anyone knows were there are any kits to fit this car I would be very grateful. thx

Contact John Olson at http://slmarket.com/ John can make progressive rate springs for you to your specs. Expensive but worth it.
