My 560's front end is tooo stiff

Before this 560 SEL, I drove a Lincoln Continental for 4 years. I like that soft floating suspension over what are on my MB.

I read about there are comfort Bilsteins. Any one here has experiences with both the HD and comfort Bilsteins? Is the comfort shock that much soft? How could I tell what is on my MB now? I could handle minor things like R & R fuel accumulator, rear SLS accumulator and T-stat. Is replacing a set of front shocks within my ability? Do I have to deal with the spring?

Many thanks.

mewmbie-- just wondering about your daughter's ride -- what car did you guys settle on for her? last we heard, you were considering an old bimmer, right?

Changing gear a bit. My D is 15 and she has expressed no desire to learn to drive yet. Since both our cars are on the old side (99 Buick), we may get a new vechile for the family. Last time I checked, we only have $53,000 in our checking accounts so the best we could do is putting $3000 down to get her what she wants at her 16th BD and let her find a job to take over the payment.
sounds like a good plan. maybe you can but a continental for the family and hand your benz down to your daughter... just a thought...
