I was told that KW Varient 1's were a great option if i wanted a good coil-over system (which I do)

Any ideas or suggestions? Will a KW Varient 1 setup fit/work well?

I have 18"s on there and everything else is stock


thanks,

Paul

BUMP

anyone? PLEASE

I need a little help here

I've run into a LOT of roadblocks because my car is a 4matic. Does anyone know what my coilover options are with the 4matic taken into account?

Thanks,

Paul

hey Pdawg, I am stating the obvious here, but springs/coilovers are hard to find for a 4-matic. I believe Vogtland makes lowering springs for 4-Matic. I have yet to see coilovers. There was someone on here ( or maybe the the other MB forum) that was trying to get a group-buy going. I think the gist of that was if he could find enough buyers the manufacterer would build sets for 4-matic application. BTW, Wheels look good. Cheers, Greg

With that said, a good set of Bilsteins and springs will give you 95% of what coilovers do handling wise, but you won't get the same amount of drop out of them. Don't bother paying for adjustables unless you want to pay to have them run on a shock dyno as well.

Bilsteins run a little too stiff for me...too much performance and not as much "cush" in the ride.

I was considering Konis. Any thoughts? (Keep 4matic in mind)

nope

turns out Konis dont apply to the 4matic. Seems none of the good aftermarket suspension companies offer anything for a 4matic

Still have 0 options.

hmmmmmm


PS - thanks for the link

You could get Bilsteins and have them revalved softer, shouldn't be crazy expensive. Of course you have to find a suspension shop that can do that, but once it's done it should work great.
