Thanks for the comments guys.

The Merc is going into the suspension shop on saturday and im hoping to get it back in a week. Have paid for all the parts just gotta fork out for labour and engineers certificate now. Hanging to have it done. Its the main reason I bought this merc - wanted one airbagged for ages.

TEASER PIC!

The workshop thought they would tease me with this pic so thought I'd show off the progress. Hoping to have it back Friday or early next week but may have more pics before then.

Sorry guys, Workshop had to order 5" bags for the front because they are a bit on the small side. The boot is all finished and all the lines have been run. They still need to relocate the rear shocks which I had to get new ones that are shorter otherwise it would sit as low.

I am big time anxious to get the car back. Was suppose to take 1 week but has been two so far and will probably take the best part of new week too.

Pic I posted of the boot is the only one I have so far. Will post more when the workshop sends me more.
