I was wondering where & which brand you guys would recommend buying lowering springs for my 89 300 SE... Also are there any good body kits out there?

I would also love to find some AMG Monoblocks, hard to find these days... Is it true you can only go to a 17" wheel on these cars?

Thanks guys, great forum here,

Jamie

I've seen people put 20" wheels on these cars, but does not mean that its a comfortable ride. The overall consensus is that 17" is the largest wheel size you can go where you improve handling and don't lose that much comfort. Any larger, it will feel like driving a truck.

Springs -- H&R and Eibach are the more common/available springs. There are other less common ones out there (i.e. Jamex) but are tough to find in the US.

Bodykits are all NLA unless you opt for the ebay kits. The period-correct kits range from a number of tuners (AMG, Lorinser, etc) and are hard to find complete and in good condition.
