Tirerack($700) and Coximport.com($686.00) both say it's back ordered for at least a month.
I'm looking for the whole kit (springs and shocks): Eibach stock no. 2557.780

Assuming this is a serious Q, I searched "Eibach+springs" and got this return:
Results 1 - 10 of about 445,000 for eibach springs
O'course most won't have Merc springs, but I'd think a few of the 445,000 sources might.[8D]

Just ordered Eibach Pro Kit with Koni adjustables from tirerack for $700 delivered. Why didn't they tell me they sell the Eibach/Koni combo for the same price as the Eibach/Eibach kit to begin with? From poking around here and the "other" MB forum, seems everyone is very pleased w/ Eibach/Koni.
Will post photo once installed.

Got the springs and Koni adjustables installed yesterday. Number 2 spring pads front and rear. That nagging floating feeling is no more. This beast now feels like it's locked on rails. I set the Konis on "medium/position 2". I may change it to position 1 (softest) although it's really not too harsh of a ride.

May I ask why is the Eibach/Koni, better than the Eibach/Eibach,I was looking around and finally decided to install the Eibach Pro System plus, which includes the springs, shocks and anti-roll bars, it costs about $1100 on tire rack.
One of my friends told me the even better than this Eibach system is the KLEEMANN Speed Sensitive Suspension,which was fitted on their MY 2000 W210 E55, which got Worl record for The fastest saloon in the world, but yet I don't know how much does it cost and what is teh performance of it, also am confused if am installing the Eibach's , shall I go with the pro-kit springs or the sport-kit springs.

I really trust Eibach. I've had 2 other cars installed with Eibach and I just think the ride is better than H&R. My friend had H&R on a similar car. Bilstein makes pretty good shocks to go with it..but if money is an issue..I saw a REALLY REALLY cheap KYB Gas-A-Just aftermarket shocks for $170 for ALL FOUR. I think I saw it on ebay...check ebay.

I got my eiback kit for $300 installed. I don't know where you guys got yours but thats damn expensive.

Hey mpbruin108,thanx for ur openion, so u'd go with Eibach,hummm,well I am looking for the best of all Eibach,H&R or Bilesten that makes the springs for the W210 AMG as far as I know, about money if there isn't thta much difference I wouldn't care that much, I want to get the best system that money can buy,am not planing to install only the springs which are less that $300, when I said about $1100 I meant the full Suspension System which is called Eibach Pro-System Plus, which includes the springs,shocks and the swaybars, and that price was one tirerack, we got some dealr down here in Saudi Arabia that sells them for a bit higher but u have to consider shipping and custom tax.
I am waiting for ur latest news about the best of these 3 brand names or if u have any more info about the Kleeman Speed Sensitive Suspension System, and nice ride u got.
