    Not sure which springs I need exactly.

    It's a Late 1998, S Registered C200 Classic, Facelift.

    I need two new front springs as, I bought a cheap one to replace a snapped original and it's too soft, giving me quite a few problems.

    So a Matched pair would be nice.

    Looking for some with the paint still on as once the paint has flaked, the resulting rust snaps the spring.

    I think the 1998 Facelift brought a firmer ride over the Elegance/Classic Models Prior to 1998, I could be wrong.

    Many Thanks.

    Get hem new from MB. Just quote them your chassis number and they will order you a set as they are chassis specific. They are only £50 each or so.

    Have you considered a set of lowering springs?

    Olly is it best for go for a Bilstein springs and shocks set or go for a specific combination of lowering springs and shocks.

    I have 2 choices either:
    1. Bilstein B12 - which I know will cost 500 pound for the set plus fitting.
    2. Go for Sport Springs with OEM shocks.

    Which would you recommend?

    Lowering Springs?

    Wouldn't I have to declare that as a modification on my insurance?

    I would go the B12 kit. It is so so good.

    Yes but it will make little difference to the cost.
