I been hearing people mentioning shims numbers as:<br> DOT1-DOT5. Anyone know how i can identify which ones that I have, besides taking the wheels and springs off? <br> Also, what the the thickness of these shim:<br> DOT1= MM<br> DOT2= MM<br> DOT3= MM<br> DOT4= MM<br> DOT5= MM<br> <br> LASTLY: Anyone here lowered thier car using H&R sport spring, using 17' 225/45 profile tire? I am a bit hesitant to install the H&R because it might lower too much...the O.E. sport from H&R seem to be perfect, but too bad they dont make them for MBZ.<br> The distance from the ground to the center of the fender wheel arc is:<br> Front: 27 1/4'<br> Rear: 25 3/8'<br> With 225/45/17<br> <br> What are your measurements lowered with H&Rs (with the same wheel/tire size).<br> <br> Pictures are welcome...<br> <br> Thanks.<br>

210 321 0184 5mm = 1 dot<br> 210 321 0284 9mm = 2 dots<br> 210 321 0384 13mm = 3 dots<br> 210 321 0484 17mm = 4 dots<br> 210 321 0585 21mm = 5 dots<br> <br> There's no way to indentify without taking them off since it sits on top of the spring.<br> <br> Once off, the number of dots specifies what it is.
