what about the spring pad? if i take that out, how much would it lower the car by? and... are intrax springs any good? i called wholesale hyperformance and they sell them for $251.30 and the guy said it should lower the car by about 2"...
how much are the spring pad #1's from the dealer anyway?
mark- i like the way u lowered your car. so what did u do again? bought those h&r springs and cut them a lil bit? i might do something like that too, hows the handling and the road noises? i'm planning to upgrade to 19's in a few months but for now im sticking to the stock 17" amg's... u think the car would still look good if its lowered with the 17's on? thanks for your advice man... i really appreciate it... you car's off the hook [^]
I once had to drive the car lowered with my AMG's and it didn't look that bad. Always better with 19's though. I have no road noise but the 19's give you more feel that the 17's because of the rubber bands for tires. As far as handling, any Mercedes has the subtle roll in terms of steering. I would definitely recommend a camber and caster alignment since my rears bowed in when I put the 19x10's in the back.
Im doing the same set up...i just had the H&R springs, bilstein shocks put on mine and i definitly like the more aggressive look. ive also purchased 19in carlsson 2/5's which im putting on closer to the spring. if i get a chance. ill take some pics of my car lowered with slock 17in AMG's
