92 E220 option 653 sport chassis
Hi, I have this 92 E220 in my family for many years now and went through a set of Bilstein front shocks and replaced on late 2016.

Out of curiosity I did a vin decode and found out this car was actually from UK and there's this option "653 sport chassis with 8-hole light alloy wheels".

I did some googling online and some suggested that 653 means it is equipped with sport line suspension components (not a full sportline package). I'm just wondering how to determine if the springs are still real sportline because this car came with steel rims and rim cap when we got it back then which indicates someone swapped them out long time ago, not sure if they swapped other things out too. There are few things that I want to know:

- front springs, still have paint marks on them, with the lowest one being blue (count from top to bottom). Some on the other forum says red is short, blue is long, and some said can count the number of coils, mine have 10, some of the longer ones online have 11.
- sway bars, I can't jack up the car to see the part number, but it looks like one uniform diameter all the way, some of those people suggested sportline version will have a taper, but their cars are mostly 6cyl in the US.
- is the original sportline shocks made by Sachs? Mine is just Bilstein B4 0191 (I believe "tropen", same goes to the set that failed)

Besides, I always feel the car's ride to be a little on the firm side compared to a W202 C200 that my family also own. I also noticed the mechanic swapped new spring pads that have 4 notch which I believe is the thickest pad, so now the wheel gap looks a bit bigger then rear. Is it possible that I have the shorter springs and they keep bottoming out the shocks or offset by the #4 spring pads already?

Hope anyone with these knowledge or have a 4cyl 124 with this sport chassis option can chime in and compare. Thank you.

Bro,

You can check with your mechanic. They can advise you on this. I have been using Bilstein front and shocks. So far no issues. You can check in the W124 forum as there has been a number of discussion on this already in the forum.

Re: 92 E220 option 653 sport chassis
Thank you for the thread suggestions, been away for quite awhile and didn't see your replies.

I was checking my front suspension to check for any worn out parts. I noticed when my car is stationary, there's not much travel left for the shock to move (1cm?).

Refer this photo https://prnt.sc/kejs6l

It is as if the shock is almost resting on the bump stop itself. From the photo, can also see that it's the thickest bump stop (from the ridges), any smaller ones have smaller ridge. My car is not lowered, original springs with 4 dots spring pads.

The shock is Bilstein B4 tropen, just replaced 2 years ago, done only about 15,000km and not leaking.

Perhaps the harsh ride is because I was riding on the bump stop all these while . How about your W124?

My W124 is doing great. It has passed more than 500,000 km few years back and still running well.

Please check those thread that I shared earlier. There's lots sharing in those thread by the team here.

All the best to your W124..
