no offense but you have the worst year to consider lowering your car with springs. but as for a custom setup the year doesn't make a difference. I prefer airbags the still keep the soft ride.

here is why i said you have the worst year for springs: 92-95 had a different setup and 95-99 had a different setup so you see what went there. some 95's had updated suspension while others didn't.

Hydrolics will be more reliable an less noise, but you will have to remember to charge the battery's

airbags smoother and should be cheaper then hydraulics. now hydraulics take up alot of space if remember correctly and have a couple batteries. they are more reliable when they are maintained. but like i said i prefer airbags for comfort but not as reliable.

i personally prefer 92-95 because the interior quality is better. not a fan of 99 because of fiberoptics as a mercedes dealer told me they tested fiberoptics on this car. so i the latest model i would recommend 97-98. dont know if the fiberoptic thing is true or not but it does sound like something mercedes would do lol
