E350 Wagon
E350 4MATIC ESTATE (S212) lowering help!

Hey guys,

I have a 2012 E350 4MATIC wagon and want to lower the car a little.

I found a set of H&R springs to lower the car. It seems they only come for the front (2) springs....as the rear will lower itself once it recognizes the lowered front!?!?

Some please confirm that is the case.

Also, if anyone has this exact setup, maybe you can show me some pictures of the finished lowered car?

thanks!

Steve

Hi, as far as I know and can help, all the S212 (w212 Kombi) have the airmatic rear suspension, which means you will be able only to buy the front "normal" lower Springs.
As an extra, we can also have the front airmatic suspension.
The air suspension have a feature that force the car to self leveling every time the engine starts, so in theory if you lower the front, the rear will adjust to the front weight.
If the rear doesn't lower the same amount, you can always check for "Airmatic lowering links" for the rear.

In my case I have the front and rear airmatic suspension, so I can lower or raise the car (confort, or sport setting):

I hope it helps.

SteveS212, have you lowered your wagon already? I just picked one up and would like confirmation as well. I looked today, springs up front and air suspension for the rear. Curious how to lower the rears. Thanks

No, never ended up doing it. I felt that it was more trouble than it's worth. If I were to lower the car, it'll have to be coilovers for all 4 corners. I don't want to mess with an expensive part by having springs in the front and stock pieces in the rear.

2012 MB e350 4matic s212 (wagon)
Hey y'all! I just bought a 2012 s212 and I want to trash the rear airmatic suspension. I can't find any type of kit anywhere to do that...
Can anyone help out?
