    Hi Folks,
    New here but have read so much about this subject I'm confused and this should be a quick answer for someone.

    I have a 1994 W124 E320 Estate "project car" I want it lowered to look (eventually) like a E36 AMG... To date I've had fitted Sportline springs on the front with number 1 shims and Bilstein shocks.
    To the rear sportline springs with again number 1 shims. The SLS has been adjusted down (I'm told) as low as it will go without the rear just sitting on the springs... Alas it is still too high for my liking!!!
    Enough waffle, here is the question: Is there a SLS strut specific in length/travel to the Sportline chassis or are they just damped differently to the standard strut (that is OEM on my car) and adjusted lower?

    Thanks in advance and apologies for dragging up an old topic.

    AFAIK the Sports Chassis / Sportline struts are different and, I assume, shorter. But the spring sets the static ride height so look there for lowering
