Our 2003 E320 sedan (75,000 miles) was in for service recently and the dealer advised that both rear coil springs (not airmatic springs btw) are "broken" and need replacing. I've owned a lot of cars in my 51 years, and several MBZs, and have only one time experienced a broken coil spring (in a 1983 Porsche 944). This just seems so "not right" to me...... Anyone have a similar experience?:confused:

Had the same issue on a 2003 C320. One of the rear springs broke and they recommended replacing both. Maybe 2003 was a bad year for rear coil springs for MB in general.

If one broke at that age it is safer and a much better riding car if both sides are replaced.
