Welcome to SLKWorld.com: The #1 Mercedes-Benz SLK Forum from Valrico, Florida!

First please update your vehicle (year?: 1996-2016, model?: 32, 200, 230, 250, 280, 300,320,350,55) in your profile as it helps the members answer your questions which usually are based on that information if you haven’t.
Follow exactly to update: ‘Usercp’ at the top of page, then ‘edit your details’ on the left side, ‘additional information’ near the bottom, edit your ‘vehicle’. Info in your garage does not update your profile.




Some tips to make your visit here more enjoyable:
If you haven’t, please use the 'search' feature at the top right of the page for your questions as they have probably been asked before. Remember, ‘Search’ is your friend.
If you wish to become PM (Private Message) capable, you need 15 posts. To get those 15 posts quickly, just go to the ‘New members introduce yourself here’ section and welcome enough new members to obtain your needed posts to PM.
Want to post a picture? Start a new thread or make a post, click ‘edit’, click on the ‘paper clip’ or ‘advanced’ and/or ‘manage attachments’ then ‘choose file’ then ‘upload’ and ‘submit’! If Iphone pics, you need to rename any additional pics as Iphone names its pics all the same, image.jpg.
Want to ‘like’ or thank’ someone’s comments? Use the ‘like’ button to the right or the ‘Thanks’ button, bottom right of any post you like. This saves you having to comment.
New members should be aware that the 'New Posts' link next to the 'Search' link top right of the info bar is a great way to see all of the posts you have missed since you were on the forum last. Remember to click 'mark forums read' under ‘quick links’ when you leave.
Post your vin in the Vehicle Datacard Request section to get a free datacard (options on your car). You must update your profile with vehicle info and your location and post an introduction first.
Also vote or enter our Ride of the Month competition: http://www.slkworld.com/rotm-submissions-voting/

Thank you

Hi and welcome from the UK Midlands! :)

I can't help with advice on lowering your SLK, but I'm sure someone that's able to help will soon contribute some useful advice for you...

Welcome from the Sacramento Valley SLK Enthusiasts!

My SLK 55 sits low enough, I'm really scared of curbs and parking lot concrete blocks so much that I usually back into the parking spots. I'm not a big fan of lowering, but good luck somebody will chime in shortly.

Welcome from Hillsboro, Oregon! There's only one way to lower a car properly, and that is to replace the original springs with shorter, stiffer ones. When doing so, you also have to replace the shocks since those are matched to the spring (length of travel and rate of damping). Have a troll around the R170 section of the forum and I'm sure you'll find some options from the likes of Eibach and H&R. Fitting the factory SLK32AMG springs and shocks is also an option.
