The KWs definitely handles really well through corners and high speed driving though.
On my CLS the gap was about 1/2 finger in the rear and I didnt mind it all too much... the problem was the airmatic with me... its just allows for too much roll still even with the PP shocks. I have always not been a big fan of air and hydraulic suspensions (aka airmatic and abc)

Any up to date thoughts on this subject?

On a non performance pack car, what spring set up provides the closest to OEM feel / ride - not interested in the slightest in handling improvements, just pure cosmetics.

I have a 13 CLS 550 on the Renntech setup with front lowering links. This is what a 6" Drop on the front looks like; with a 2 1/2" in the rear.

Thanks for your reply. Could you clarify for me though as Im new to the w218.

Have you changed the springs in the front as well as lowering links? and has the rear been done using the Renntech module (so on factory air)?

Cheers

In the non AMG 218; the front uses an air spring. However, it does not go as low as the rear. The Lowering Link is shorter in height which allows the car to go lower. Yes, the cars full factory suspension is still in place. I just changed the front links and added the renntech lowering module.

I run the KW's as i have in all my cars and yes the ride can be a little bumpy. When i 1st picked up my car it looks amazing. Hardly any tire gap but the ride was garbage. Once they raised it up a little, the ride was much better but not what i would call luxury. My main concern is when i go over reflectors or heaven forbid a railroad track, then the car shakes more than i would expect from an AMG. Price of performance and looks right.....

was wondering that too. when i get my next cls im going to want to lower it. (dont car about handling improvements) but $2300 for the renntech lowering module and coilovers seems a bit much just to lower the car. then add installation and its over $3000

i was thinking for H&R springs - $300-$400, and rear links - $200-$300, about $1500 less and wouldnt you get essentially the same results?

just saw this company, they have a solution for rear lowering links for the cls63. anyone used them?

http://www.airmatic-lowering-links.co.uk/

always was hesitant to order this type of product off ebay but it IS the name of their company!

lol

Bump. I am looking to lower my car. I found a lowering module from loweringmodule.com

http://loweringmodule.com/mercedes/cls-w218/

And wanted to see if anyone had any experience with this.

Thanks!

I bought the same module here
https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07C7G3J13

You can contact free with the seller on e-mail [email protected] for checking VIN

Called them directly. Since our suspension is spring and air in the rear it doesn't make sense investing in this system and only for the CLS550 owners since their setup is AirMatic on all 4 corners..

Looks like I'll be resorting to Coils/Sleeves in the front and links in the rear.

I use Evoklass coilovers F and links R, both are fully adjustable to your desired height. Stiffness wise, it all depends on my suspension setting. Comfort is soft/smooth, sport is stiffer, and sport + is really stiff. I love the fact that I can play with it down to the exact mm to get it just right. You wonít be disappointed.

got them off eBay for $650ish shipped from Ghost Motorsport which is EvoKlass out of LA area. I just a searched eBay and didnít see any for sale. Surely you can buy it direct. If you do, make sure they send you the black rear links and not the yellowish ones. Those snapped instantly as I try to pry them off, the black ones is much much stronger.
