Please could anyone tell me if the suspension mounts for the c36 and c43 are the same to accept lowered springs, I am having a nightmare finding springs to fit my c36.

Can anyone confirm if lowered springs produced for a c280 will fit?

And it seem h&r have a monopoly when its comes to springs for the c36

Urgent response required as I will be buying v soon

thanks

1) yes, however the spring shims MAY be different (it depends on when your C36 was produced). also note that the C43 is lighter in front and heavier in back, so it the spring rates are different.

2) yes, C280 springs (version with inline-6) will fit, again the spring shims may be different depending on the year application. spring shims are an inexpensive part.

3) you can also get AMG springs and Eibach springs. i believe in the UK you may also want to try Spax and Bilstein, which are generally difficult to find in the USA.
