    Hi, can any one tell me if shock absorbers and springs for a clk430 will fit a c43 amg. Basically a work colleague is selling a Bilstein B12 kit for a clk 430 and tells me it will fit a c43 amg. The front and rear axle weights on the kit are perfect for my car,but not sure if the shock absorbers front and back will fit, they are Bilstein B8 shock absorbers with Eibach lowering springs. Any help would be much appreciated.

    Yes, it will fit but I'd advise you cross reference the kit on Bilstein's site. Having said that I wouldn't be too surprised if the kit is suitable for both cars.

    spring/shock combo does work on different weight between cars?
    so if clk430 has same wight specs like c43 it will work, if not it will be an trial n error

    if you can low ball your friend get them dirt cheap
