The guy in the workshop told me that i should replace the entire dampers for lowering the car, and i asked for just replace the stock's springs with H&R, he said only replacing the springs will make the suspension too hard.....<br>
Please help, brothers, is he right or not?<br>
I am sure he has a point, but does the performance difference worth spending more money?<br>

You don't have to change the shocks, but..

in time they will sag (usually after 15k miles with stock shocks) because of the shorter spring. <br> <br> What CLK do you have ?

I have a 320 . I did change just the spring at first .... but after (more)

a few thousand miles .... I end up changing my shocks to Billstein Shock. The ride is much more better w/Billstein Shock.

I suggest getting the H&R Cup Kit from AutoClass.net....

It comes with matched springs and dampers and the ride quality is absolutely magnificent.

Aftermarket Shock absorbers

I ended up doing the H&R and Bilstein combo and it is an adjustment from the stock suspension for obvious reasons since the car is sitting almost two inches lower. But, the car does ride smooth.
