    W124 suspension / handling options

    I'm pretty sure the 300-24v, 500 and 600 all use the same springs, but just in case I'm wrong, get SL500. you can use the W124 B8's, i wouldnt buy the shocks until you tried the Sl spring set up with your current shocks, see how they feel in terms of damping force + travel, if you find they are...

    W124 brakes

    I thought the issues that some owners had with the calipers was to do with the Brembo aluminium calipers fitted to the 500e and 190e Evo2 and possibly some R129's. problems with noise and how aggressive the calipers were. mazza

    W124 brakes

    The calipers on the ebay listing are steel calipers, pretty heavy combo with those discs. the D2 kit will be lighter, calipers are aluminium, discs are 1 piece so they wont be on a weight watchers diet. if you are investing in an upgrade braking system, you should maybe consider 2 piece...

    @Palmer Here is some cross/corner weight data from a fully loaded (options) W124 E320 the vehicle was set up with front R129 Sl500 springs for tests and templating. fitted with 17x8.25 Evo (ceginus alloys) 245/40 tyres. your car will be slightly front heavier by a few kgs but the the...

    W124 suspension / handling options

    The only way to get the ride that you seek is by chopping a bit of the spring and then get your own custom springs made or run it with a cut spring, it wont be a problem. Unfortunately its about fitting the springs and take it from there. you could try and use a Yellow speed suspension kit...

    W124 suspension / handling options

    Haha, good old SL Springs, you just cant go wrong with them @ Palmer, Mr.Carat is spot on mate, get yourself some R129 Sl500/600 springs and have a play with that, the Sl springs are the stiffest of the lot with spring rates in the high 70's N/mm. you can always have your own stiffer springs...

    koni sport or vogtland?

    Hi Just did a quick comparison of your tyre profiles (now vs OEM) and you lost approx 2cm of tyre profile up front and just under 1cm of profile on the rear. you have very little give on your present side wall setup, this would have a bigger effect on wheel rate (spring rate at the wheel)...

    koni sport or vogtland?

    Hi I haven't posted for about a 1000 years, so here goes my 2p worth of what I think. you dont need to use B8 shocks if you are only looking for approx 35mm lowering,you can use the B6 shocks, both shocks share the same valving so no changes in performance. B8 shocks are designed for...

    Misfiring R129 300SL 12v

    Hi 80% seems extremely high in terms on mixture adjustment, engine would run rough as fcuk and would exhaust would also smell very rich. 80% on the fault codes is telling you you may have a problem with the air temp sensor or others problems. do a search on how to test the coolant...
