They work if you are out to achieve a increase in ride height.
They don't work to correct ride problems and will cause more problems than worth.
I've used them on old Chevy's to jack up the back some. It made the car ride rougher, and the springs bottomed out easier, and threw off the handling as well, to the point I removed em.
On a Benz, the springs are tightly sprung in there. It would be worse. I don't know for a fact, but suspect they would (A) be hard to twist in, since the coils are tighter together in spacing between coil twists, and (B) you chance breaking a spring, not to mention (C) your ride and handling will be screwed up in adverse conditions and noticable in average conditions.
You do what you want, and experiment.
Let us know what you break or wreck,,,ok?
