E3201995USA Okay back to this thread, I really want to find the cheapest way I could put my rear camber back to spec, I don't want to spend 300 dollars on bolts or arms that correct my camber, what is the cheapest and easiest way to put a lowered car's camber back into spec. I only need the rear camber adjusted as the front left is -1.5 and front right is -1.7.
Also is it possible to adjust caster in the front it is 10.9 left and 12.1 right? My car pulls to the right sometimes which is really annoying.

E3201995USA Thx for saying I'm not one of them, I would never weave in and out of people, for my safety and others. I accelerate quicker and my turns are sharper than normal, but that's really it. Racing is for the track, not the street. I don't ever text or drive or do anything that could seriously harm anyone, I just blast music and enjoy my 95' Benz.

Do you think it is possible for me to handle better than him? I think the lowering springs were night and day and make my car feel weigh more sporty, but I could tell there is a little bit of body roll still. So all I need are new beefier sway bars and bushings. Also, the suspension and reduction of body roll make it obvious how un-sporty the steering is in these cars. I will come back to this topic after fixing my cooling system.
I have no respect for drivers that drive aggressively on the street. The kind that floors it when the light turns green and then weave in and out of traffic only for me to pull up to them in the right hand lane at the next stop light.

Sooner or later they will crash and burn taking innocent people with them. Just like that Charger that totaled my CLK. As*holes..........not saying you are one of them.

Bigger sway bars will help reduce body roll. It's noticeable when you drive hard, but nowhere close to the improvement provided by the H&R springs and Bilsteins.

[email protected] I asked about raising the front of my 1991 300TE two months ago. I bought new pads two burl and springs. Installation went ok, the right side was tough to align the spring and install it i the seat, the left side easy to align the new spring and get it in place. It is a must to compress at least 8 coils on the spring. The new springs are Lesjofors 4056827, coil dia is 11.6mm The old springs had RBW on them and were a larger dia coil - 15mm

The new ride ht is nice, as is the ride. 34cm to the wheel ctr on the front and rear.

E3201995USA I also want to thank everyone who gave me advice and contributed to my post. I love the Bilstein and h&r spring combo it is honestly the best $1200+ I have ever spent including labor and a crappy alignment. I have put about a 1,000 miles on them and so far they are good. I am glad I didn't take any chances with cheaper springs. I messed with my old shocks my rear is like new and my front right is blown soaked in oil and my front left is very weak.
All I need now is a sway bar upgrade
and proper alignment!

I also got the strut mounts and foam stoppers replaced, the car sits very slightly higher in the rear than the front but that is good with my new heavy sub setup and it won't sag with rear passengers.

E3201995USA Ok so what are some decent camber bolts you recommend:?

You want to have the alignment set as close to factory specs as possible.

I have not installed new camber bolts on my W210 yet and have excessive negative camber. So far, I have not noticed any unusual tire wear. I did increased my front tire pressure by 4-5 PSI though and rotate my tires on a regular basis.
