Hey Guys... Have a question... My rear suspension seems pretty soft and when I have passengers in the back seat the rear actually squats a couple inches and infact actually with the wheels I'm running actually touch the inside wheelwell when hitting a fairly mild dip or bump in the road. My question is this.. I reallt don't care to lower the car with Lowering springs as I like the ride height(at least in the rear) but I would like to know if I just replace the springs with stock (new) springs would I regain the stiffness it had as new? I dont have anything to compare my ride to not having another buddy around with a 430. And I really hate to buy a set of four lowering springs just for the rear pair. Do any of you have a stock pair that you have removed that I could buy and try them out? I know its a simple swap since I researched here to find out its just takes less than an hour to do both rear springs.I don't thin kit is supposed to be this soft. Or maybe I need to replace the shocks ? But I don't think that would actually help much with this issue. What do think guys? No wise cracks about having fatasses in the back seat causing my problems! HeHeHe!

Hey,

I'm not as knowledgable as others on here, but from what I've read if you want a smoother ride you could change your whole stock suspension with coilovers and springs. But it seems you just want to replace your springs. I have an 01 CLK-430 and a lot of people like the Eibach springs so its up to you. Not sure. Hope I helped.

My car does the same thing. My tires are rubbing like mad. The suspension is soft to begin with I read, but I didnt own it new so I dont know what soft is. my 8 year old springs and shocks need to go but i dont want to lower the car either. Whats a guy to do?
