Bilstein B6 on R171 350 sport.

So I have put on Bilstein B6s all around on my 350 with sport suspension. Also the front OEM sport springs were replaced with OEM same springs.

The front is riding a bit higher than before. Any explanations for this?

The B6-es should not affect ride-height at all. It sounds like the new springs are lifting the car up more than the old ones did.
