Point by point
In order to ensure a consistent vehicle level regardless of optional extras such as sunroof, automatic transmission or air conditioning, Mercedes uses a points system to select the suspension springs and their shims.
To compensate for minor differences, there are rubber spring shims in various thicknesses that are placed on the spring and rest against the top of the spring retainer.
They allow you to raise or lower your W201 a few millimeters at a time in small increments. Thus, the rubbers are also when installing other suspensions or lowering springs a super means to fine-tune the vehicle level and prevent, for example, dragging tires during compression or large steering angle.
With us you get all variants from one to four points for the front axle and one to three points for the rear axle.
You should always change spring rubbers in pairs. You can find out which spring rubbers have the right strength for you in the following table.
Mercedes specifies the spring insert with the following thicknesses:
|Front axle 1 point||8mm|
|Front axle 2 points||13mm|
|Front axle 3 points||18mm|
|Front axle 4 points||23mm|
|Rear axle 1 point||8mm|
|Rear axle 2 points||13mm|
|Rear axle 3 points||18mm|
