R170 brabus springs

Just fitted a set of Brabus springs to my 1996 230 SLK. fantastic should have left the factory like this ! Best thing i have bought all year. It handles without any roll in and out of corners, It steers correctly and it feels like a sports car not a C class saloon. I would recommend them to anyone.
Does anyone know if putting these springs on will affect the tracking of the car. It has lowered it about 30mm.

Lowering Changing Angles

When you lower a car with springs you will change all of the suspension angles. Some of this you may not mind but if I were you I would get it set back as close to stock as you can. Your tires won't lie on the road correctly, but worse, you will be placing the load on your wheel bearings incorrectly and those will go sloppy on you. Whenworking with any suspension component, including wheels, remember: It's all about the angles.

I'd love a set of springs like that!
