I have a '00 CLK 430 and I was at first considering 19"s and dropping the car... what does it cost in parts to do a nice drop job on a CLK 430? I had a Xtreme Blazer and did 2" in the front and 3" in the back with eibach spindles and blocks and the parts were only $300. It came with McPhearson shocks and I was told they are great shocks and since I bought the truck brand new, I was told not to replace em. Or do I get 20"s for the CLK and not drop it? 19"s seem to cost more than 20"s for some reason, I have had a set of 18"s and 2 sets of 20"s for my truck and the 19"s cost more than any rims i've had for some reason. I don't want to end up spending $4,000 or $5,000 just to get some rims on this thing, I have a crotch rocket that I ride most of the summer anyways. Sorry for such a long post, any advice, pics, opinions would be greatly appreciated, thanks.

Hey, also you can buy springs on ebay that will drop the front 1.3" and the rear 1.4" just to let you know they are around 225 shipped. Also, Hey Thrillkill, your car looks great but I have a question why did you have to change your front brake pads? and where did you order them from?
