SLK350 R171 Rear suspension

Dear All,

I ve got an SLK 350 and i have noticed that the cars uncontrollable due to the torque and power.

Actually this is not the problem. The problem is that you have got no feeling of that unless is already late. You take no information that rear wheels are going to loose grip.

The wheels are 18in and in very good condition and the only mod is Brabus lowering springs.

Does anybody has the same concerns ?

Thank you

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

Please update your location/vehicle (model and year) in your profile as it helps the members answer your questions which usually are based on that information if you haven’t already.
‘Usercp’ at the top left of page, then ‘edit your details’ on the left side, ‘additional information’ near the bottom, edit your ‘location’ and ‘vehicle’. Info in your ‘garage’ does not update your ‘profile.

Don’t be shy. Post an introduction in the ‘New members introduce yourself here’ section, if you haven’t already. https://www.slkworld.com/new-members-...yourself-here/


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.
In addition, if you haven’t, please post your question in the appropriate discussion forum for a quicker response and only once. Be patient and a knowledgeable member will address your question.
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 datacard (options on your car) free.

I have an 06 SLK350 with standard suspension and 17" wheels and found it to be amazingly stable under all conditions,(despite my best efforts)
I have conisport 3s on the front and 5s on the rear.
Have you driven the car with standard springs?
My old SLK230 used to tramline terribly, this was very unnerving and turned out to be a combination of a worn steering damper and the Falken tyres.
I suggest getting an independent Mercedes specialist to give the suspension and steering a good check over.
It's a real shame it's spoiling your enjoyment, I hope you get it sorted.
