My 280CDi Sport could do with a refurb of the rear suspension. I've been looking at the parts list for the springs, and now have a headache! My car has the sports suspension option, I've added various 'points' that relate to different options on the build sheet (a total of 22 if I've got it right....).......but what am I supposed to do next?! I can't make head nor tail of the mass of numbers I'm looking at!

Anyone any ideas?

Your dealer looks it up with the VIN to get the correct ones.

Many folks here can do the same but not without the VIN or reg. ;)

Ah, ok....thanks! Any volunteers to do that for me please?!
Are aftermarket springs available? Just wondering how much genuine ones might be......!

Post your VIN or reg. number. ;)

I wouldn't do aftermarket, just too many different ones for OEM to pick from.

I think 22 equates to three red paint marks on the new springs. And plus 1 on not using aftermarket stuff.

Quickly totalled up your points, 219.

486 SPORTS SUSPENSION/952 SPORT PACKAGE/950 AMG SPORT PACKAGE/954 AVANTGARDE/952 + 954 + 486/950 + 954 + 486/950 + 954/952 + 954/951 + 494/950 + 494/952 + 494/951 + 494

If you are still on the original springs, try and find the colour codes on the springs. I have ordered springs from MB before and the first thing they ask me was what colour code was on the current springs.
