Bro mdjames...... the spring ....

which is fitting for Mercedes Benz .....
was Ascertain according to the Model / Version / Vehicle Equipments to the Car

every Car / every Model ... having a individual system
individual weight ....

another words .... the Spring was 'works' according to the vehicle weight ...
Different Weight ... Different Spring Tension ...

to advoid the unneccessary job done / extra MONEY paying for the parts

Please do NOT try on it ....

Basically ... the total WEIGHT for W201 was much much LIGHTER than W124 .....

We are NOT adviseble to CUT the Spring ...
eventually ... CUTting the Spring ...
it will become SHORTer ...
we are Increase the Spring Tension become Harder

It may Having a Additional Problem you may be Don't Like
~~~ a CUTted Spring will Make Your suspension HARDer
~~~ a Harder Suspension will Make Your Vehicle BUMPPING
~~~ a BUMMPING Vehicle will DAMAGEs The Suspension Parts
~~~ a DAMAGED Suspension will DAMAGEs Your POCKET .....

hope this helps ,

basically ... the W201 Spring and W124 ...was Totally ...
Different in Part Number ...
Different in Tension ... and Height .....

If You Want a SPORTY Spring (LOWER SPRING)
or a Higher Spring or a Standard Spring ...
please Provide your Chassis Number ....
I will advise your further ....

Re: W124 springs
Hi bro Gan,

Thanks for your advice.

The reason why I'm looking to change my W201 springs to a W124 spring is because I using a RB20det 6 cyclinder engine which is heavier compared to the W201 engine.

I'm also currenly using a sets of Eibach springs and I find it too soft to support my front. I was advice to get harder springs for the front to support the engine weight. This is very dangerous especially high speed corner.

Any advice for this?

w124 sampai 3 dots sahaja. 8mm, 13mm & 18mm. kalau tak silap la... tapi bukan untuk adjust tinggi rendah. setahu saya untuk lapik spring jer. betul ke? anybody knows...?!

Re: W124 springs
Hi guys,

Just to share some updates... I have change my W201 with W124 springs and absobers from a 260E.

After much R&D of the high adjustment, front chop 2 rounds with rubber pad dot 4 and back chop 2 1/2 rounds with dot 3 rubber pad (can't really tell if it is dot 3 coz can't see any reading but previous owner told me it was dot 3). Results, there is 2 fingers clearance for front and back.

Indeed my W201 now is much stiffer but yet still comfy. Now I can happily sweep high speed conner without any worries...

Those who has converted their W201 to RB20det / RB25det / 1jz engine, using W124 springs and absobers from a 260E would be the best setting...

Perhaps in the future if I have the budget I'll go for titan absobers...

Cheers brothers!
