Rear coil springs

I took my car in for an MOT and it failed on a broken rear coil spring, I had the garage replace both springs but the rear of the car seems/is sitting higher than it was before. The spring broke at the bottom so I know it will be a bit higher but I don't think it should be this high. The part number on the invoice is A1721241245, I am just wondering if they have fitted standard springs and not ones for an AMG model which should be 25mm lower. I do have the old springs which have 3 blue stripes on them and have been replaced with the same. They might just need to settle down a bit, has anyone else replaced the rear springs on their car and do they take a little time to settle.

3 blue stripe is sport AMG.





So you got A1721241245 & it says A2103243404.


Just in case I am missing something I'll ask Tim to review @WoZ53
Code 486 just says sports suspension

Thanks for your help on this, the part number you quoted does come up on the internet as a rear coil spring but the part number I have doesn't.

Let Tim take a look. He better with these things, but I am confident of the one I provided.


However, I am but mortal.

The part number Myk listed is the correct one for sport suspension.

Thanks for your help, I will give the garage a ring on Monday. If someone has a standard AMG styled SLK CDI and gets a chance could you please measure the distance from the centre of the rear wheel to the underside of the wing, i can't find that information anywhere.
Thanks
