Lowered 300E thread with photos and specs

Can we have an honest conversation about custom suspensions on the W124 300E? By “custom” I mean anything other than stock.

We can have a honest, constructive conversation by talking about what works and what doesn’t without talking down to people about what they don’t like.

Some people do the suspension work for race purposes and some do it just for the look.

Whether it be lowering springs and sport shocks, cut springs ��, air-ride or even the select few running coil-overs(omg did he say that?)

So many people post photos but never show the comparison photos of what the car looked like at stock height. Some people searching and scrolling want to see the difference so they can decide what to do with their car......WITHOUT someone talking $#!+ about what they want to do with their car.

Yeah, technically its your right to be able to speak your mind but how about we keep the trolling to a minimum......CAN YOU DO THAT? Great.

Why don’t I start off.......

For example.....How low can you go with R129 mounts, Bilstein B8’s and lowering springs on the 300E specifically ? Like how much lower from stock will it be? Do you have photo comparisons? How about photos of the parts being installed? Oh, and specs too. Wheel and tire size and how low it went from stock?

I also see talk about air-ride but I see very little on the installations. Or what the car looks like aired up and at ride height. Can we get some of those photos or videos links?

What combination do you like and why?

What about wheel and tire fitment with any of the combinations? Any bodywork to fit right?

If you’re on air what wheel and tire combo are you running to fit in those wheel wells? Got pics?

Let’s try not to be trolls now...... Thanks
