    Default Mercedes 124 Coil Spring Spacers

    Has anyone use spring spacers to lift their ride?
    I have a W124, 93/94 model and its just too low. I need to lift it by at least 2 inch and have been advised to use Coil Spring spacers, specifically Mr. Gasket brand Coil Spring Spacers part # 1285.

    Has anyone else use them?
    Are they available in Pak?

    What kind of affect do they have on the ride quality and the handling of the car?

    Can I put one each on both top and bottom of each spring? Pls advise.

    Regards

    Looks like the Merc specialist is off these days.

    @ Sajid

    When dad bought the spacers to use in an audi quattro, but they were for mercedes and that was long back..

    U can get the numbers from 181 or 700017000 for car truck mercedes parts. And there are a number of mercedes parts dealers on bmw road Sharjah so u'll prolly have to pay a visit and will have to look for them, im pretty sure u will find them!
    cheers!
