Guys,

After waiting 3 months to get hold of the springs, i finally had them installed on saturday! and what a difference!

i was surprised to find out that the standard springs on the C36 are just a normal 210 part number, no AMG springs!!! shocks however were special bilstein AMG ones with the AMG logo engraved on them.

car sits LOW now, i changed the front pad from a #4 to a #1 and left the rear as a #2. surprisingly it doesnt rub even with 4 people in it, even tho the rear tyre and bit of the rim are right under the rear arch when fully loaded!

i didnt have my digital camara this weekend else i would have taken step by step pics, changing the springs looked quiet easy as long as you have the right tools (merc spring clamps for the front and a good socket set for the rear)

Tracking was only out a little on the front and rear was fine.

Pics will follow!!!

why did you get tracking done straight away?

the springs will take at least a min of 2-4 weeks to settle down! and then you may need tracking done again!

i can re-track in 2 weeks for free, and i had a 100 mile drive to do so i didnt want to risk uneven tyre wear!
