be aware that sport suspension cars also have larger stabiliser bars with larger links and bushings with larger diameter bolts which attach to the strut.

Yes you have to swap the springs and sway bar end links too at the same time.

Do you have to do the springs at the same time as the shocks?

In the front yes. Both the spring and strut are 1.5" shorter.


On the rear of the wagon you just need to change the shock. The rear springs are the same PN as the clk55. C55 or CLK55 sway bars are also nice.

I have an 2005 c230 kompressor and have some worn components. Is there a reasonable kit to check out? Going to replace control arms thought I might do a front drop too.
