hi people,
i am new here so please be gentle!
i currently own a c320 avantgarde have just upgraded to a set of c32 amg wheels. The height of the arch is still a bit too high for me and was wondering what would be best to lower this by?
i am thinking 30mm but have been looking online an cannot find a suitable company to provide the springs..
Wanted 18s but think this may comprimise the ride a bit too much!
thanks in advance

There are several companies with good sport springs for the W203 C Class. My personal favorite are Eibach and H&R.

If you do not want to compromise the ride comfort, I recommend Eibach. The Eibach Pro Kit is a sure shot. If you want to go a bit lower, and do not mind a harder ride, I am sure you will love the H&R kit.

We discussed the topic some time ago in http://www.benzworld.org/forums/forums/thread-view.asp?tid=1199197&posts=11&hl=. Please notice the links to photos of my previous C320 with Eibach Pro Kit in the thread.

I don't think so. But is you place a want-to-buy ad, somebody might have spare front springs. On the other hand, the sport springs are not about lowering only. They also affect the handling. Because of this, I would recommend always doing all 4 springs. If you do not do the rear, your car might feel weird.

http://www.hr-spezialfedern.de/index.php?sprache=en is the H&R web page for the UK. Other spring makers are Eibach, Vogtland and B+G. B+G is a Swedish company, the others are German. You can get adjustable height suspensions (coilovers) from H&R, Eibach, Bilstein and KW. Don't waste money on springs from the name brand tuners. You are just paying for them to put their name on products from the companies named above.

In Europe, MB sells cars with a variety of spring options. If you have access to the parts catalog, you may be able to find MB springs that meet your requirements.
