Does anyone have the height and spring rate comparison for the rear springs for the r171 350 vs 55?
Long story short, I lost my OEM 55 springs during my move, and H&R rear springs are too low for daily driving. I found a set of 350 springs locally, I was thinking of cutting a coil off and using that.

And just to check, If I do find SLK 55 rear springs,
The lowest height spring is 208 324 00 04
standard spring is 202 324 25 04
and the tallest spring is 203 324 05 04, right?
I tried adding the points for every option, and I can't seem to find the 203 spring, even though that looks like the most common one?

Can't answer the question, but remember that there was more than one option for the 350 suspension.
I presume that included spring options.

It seems to be a minefield , i am after some lower springs than the standard set up on my 2005 350, to pair with the original shocks and have looked on auto doc, for sachs springs but there are a few combinations and i am worried that choosing the lowest size for my car may end in disaster with the front or rear being sat at the wrong heights. Auto doc do give sizes though
