Are ML320 Rear Springs longer than/do they sit higher than ML55 Rear Springs?

I'm guessing the answer is yes, but just want to confirm.

Thanks,
Joe

Is this for sure? I seem to recall looking them up last year and the part numbers were all the same..
And where exactly did you look at these parts for their part #s showing them to be the same?

We are not talking about fitting. Any W163 strut including ML55 is interchangeable between the models. But we are talking about ML55 Struts being different because of the lenght of the springs.

Thanks a lot 43sqd. I recently unknowingly replaced my broken 55 spring with a 320 it almost spoiled my new Blistein B6 performance shocks. The dust cover ripped off exposing the tube and it almost never absorb anything.

In the states benz only sells the rear sping as a full package labeled rebuilt ( at least that is all I could find on a dealers web site.

1633201813 Is listed as a fit for almost all Mls' including 55, spring package
163320211380 Is listed as a 55 only spring package.

oem ML55 struts from the stealership are $$$. You can head into a pick n pull and try your luck there to find the correct ones, OR look at coil-over options (tested and proven + reasonable cost re-purposing the the ML oem top strut mount.) AND still provide you the correct ride height and ride for the ML55.

These are off an ML55 part-out we stripped last year (96kKm )
