    I brought the car about 6 months ago and its my first w124 its a fantastic car and super ride its just got over 100k on the clock, I would like to lower it a tad and get rid of a bit of body roll and tighten it up, as most of my daily drive is through back roads, im open to going for aftermarket bits or oem depending on the prices, where's the best place to start ? i see that running the sportline running gear is popular but haven't seen any prices posted and info or help ideas welcome, this is my first post let me know if there is somewhere i can find all this info already cheers. phil

    93 E320 coupe sportline facelift
    Full sportline conversion is a bit of a mission
    Sportline suspension
    4 new Bilsteins would improve it if the ones on the car have a lot of mileage on them.
    Are the bushings good
