remember that your 280E puts out only 240 nm or 177 lbft of torque and that mercedes had a choice of axles to put in this car yet they decided on 3.58 for probably good reasons.

I wouldn't go lower than 3.07 plus its much cheaper and more plentiful than the 2.88

3.69 and 3.58 is not that big of a difference
