I need at least one coil spring for my 93 300D ASAP! I have a 650 mile trip to go on the 19 of May and just found out my passenger side spring is broken. Just about anything will do. My email is [email protected]. I live in northern NY so if any one is near they can call me at 315-869-2858. Thanks, Dave

if your coil spring is broken, I would make sure your spring perches are safe. Remember you need the MB factory spring compressor to put it in. See mercedesshop.com regarding that. Search KLANN. Id just take the car to the dealer with your short time frame...Maybe there is one in stock locally to you.

Thanks everyone for your help. I decided to cut them down and now have an awesome looking ride. They were 17" springs now they are 15". Just have to do the back now. I do all my own work. And you don't have to get the MB coil spring compressor. I rented a pair from Advance Auto that worked great.
