Wow! $850 for springs is a rip off. It's an easy enough DIY if you are inclined. What's your mechanic's hourly rate? That shouldn't be more than a 2 hour job for a pro. I'd look for used stock springs and put new shocks and struts on. What happened to your stock springs? Post some pictures of your ride height and see if there are any members that want to go lower that will trade springs.

Yeah. That's a good idea. There's always someone who wants to go low that will trade stock springs for lowering springs. I'd try that. Make a Want to buy? thread in the correct section.

i have my stock springs as well, but i dont think they are the same as your stock springs. your best bet would be to find someone willing to part with their stock springs. there is also the option of getting larger spring pads depending on what size is already on your car and why or how high you want to raise the ride height.

I have a 2000 c230k and I had bought eibachs and i am going to by Billy shocks this week..i should have the new suspension installed within 2 weeks... I am willing to sell my original complete suspension (OEM springs and shocks) for $250 shipped if you are interested? There are no issues or sag with the shocks or springs...
