All the rear 124 springs are interchangeable, however since there was only one Sportline Cabrio rear spring spec'd in the EPC, you don't know which spring would be an acceptable alternative.Is there any way to use a sedan Sportline spring in the rear? Is there a way to substitiue for something that carries less points - will that drop it a bit..........??
Front and rear 124 springs have open coils at the bottom, and yes yoy can trim off a bit and still have it sit correctly. If you go this route, make sure to only trim a small amount at a time (i.e., 1/4 coil). If you cut too much off, you'll have to buy new springs to fix it.The smaller one in the picture in post #1 is the rear, at the bottom it looks like this is open ended, is that right, or are they closed like the fronts.
If they are open at the bottom, is it just a matter of triming a little piece off and it will still sit correctly in the springlink??
I was thinking cars that have a lower axle weight at the rear, anyone got a list of rear axle weights for the 124's - worth a punt, I'd have thought........??All the rear 124 springs are interchangeable, however since there was only one Sportline Cabrio rear spring spec'd in the EPC, you don't know which spring would be an acceptable alternative.
For the record they do, here's a picture of a set going in mine, part number 124 324 34 04 - red.Does anybody know if MB offered a rear "short" red spring for the Sportline E320 Cabriolet - Non SLS?
