Okay, looking for some help here on lowering my ’01 E320 / W210 chassis. I have perused different websites looking for information on Eibach and H&R lowering springs sets. I would like to lower my vehicle by approximately 1.5� to close the gap between the tire and fender. (18� AMG wheels with Bridgestone Pontenza RE750 235/40x18 and RE750 265/35x18 tires.) I’m not looking to necessarily improve the handling; I would like to maintain the overall ride-quality as much as possible.

Any specific recommendations would be greatly appreciated, including information on modifications that you may have done. I also posted the question in Wheels, Tires, Suspension but thought I might get more specific information here.

Thank you!

I'd suggets the Eibach pro drop springs kit (30-35mm drop) and then decide what spring pads youd need to get AFTER you have done the drop. Eibach are pretty good/comfortable with a staggered setup like what you and I have. But if it's just a drop you want, perhaps it's best to just go for different spring pads (smaller than what you have already).


Spring pad part numbers:
210 321 0184 5mm
210 321 0284 9mm
210 321 0384 13mm
210 321 0484 17mm
210 321 0585 21mm

Thanks for the reply Storm. I have no idea was size the stock pad is. Do you have any pictures or know a website that would show me what the OEM pad and spring looks like? Just trying to educate myself as much as possible...

Thanks again-
