Lower W114/115

AMG in the 70's used to cut 1/2 front and 1/4 turn of the coil to get down 2 ,5 cm. They used Bielstein or Sachs shocks for the transformation and the cars were very good handling (up to 205 HP/DIN).

Alternative , lower spring kit, from the mentioned suppliere or from HR-Springs.

Thanks, my mechanic said I should just cut the small amount off like you say AMG used to do and it wouldn't cause any problems.
