Could put w209 oem suspension into w203 sedan?

Hi guys,

could you give me some information whether CLK320 2004 (w209) suspension/shock will fit perfectly into C320 2001 (w203) since their body are quite similar.

Also, someone told me that w209 share same platform with w203 in terms of suspension.

Please help me to clarify this issue. I really appreciate it guys..

Thank you.

no kids, The Honda was kind of like an itch I had to scratch. That Odyessy had a full body kit and 20's BTW But then my sister had kids so I returned it back to stock and gave her the van. I still miss it sometimes. I'll try to find a pic of it and post it up. TC

Now, back on topic please

Mercedes Benz clk550
203 suspension on a w209 (clk550) ?

Are the 203 control arms compatible for a clk550? They were made for a 203 chassis, but some says they fit. When you look at the control arms that they sell now for a clk550 they don't even look the same. I'm seriously worries please help.
