MERCEDES BENZ 190 W201 DIY Mercedes W201 190 Front and Rear Suspension including springs shocks struts

REAR suspension First you will need to jack the car up and put it on a jack stand and remove the wheel. On some models you will also have to remove the plastic cover for the bottom armwhich is held on by 4 10mm boltarrowed 1 and 2 with another 2 on the other side of the arm to change the shock undo bolt Awhich is a 17mm head and nutthen undo bolt Ecompress the shock and it comes out. to remove the

I tired to do the front with the same spring compressor but it didnt work. The long bolts kept hitting the spring mount. Also the spring hooks on the spring compressor would turn so they werent equally the same distance apart on each side of the spring. I just gave up and got the MB spring compressor.

Quote You dont need spring compressors for the front end. so you are saying I can pull the LCA bolts like the rear and pull the spring. I was thinking about that but it seems that it would be very hard to line up 2 holse perfect. I did this on the back and it was cake. I just paid MB 191 to swap my fronts yesterday. I dont have the correct spring compressor and the one I was using took for ever.

MERCEDES BENZ 190 W201 190D 2.5 front springs and rim fitment issues

So my mechanic replaced the front springs in my 190D 2.5 (both were snapped) and he also without my permission bought used rims for my car because he believes the ones I have on there (from a 92 W124 the 8 hole ones) are causing the lug bolts to stick (they have been drilled out 3 times now). Well I got the car back yesterday after that work and 2200 in other suspension work (rear links bushings bearings

MERCEDES BENZ 190 W201 Even out frontrear 190e suspension...lowering question

The front of my 1984 190e 2.3 sits approximately 1.5 inches higher than the rear (off of the tires) and my strutsshocks are shot. Lowering the front 1.5 inches with the H&R touring kit (springsstruts) would even this out if I keep the factory rear springs w new shocks. Will bad things happen if I install only the front portion of the H&R Touring Kit while maintaining the factory rear springs with some

Sounds like the rear springs are sagging. Id put the new springs in all around and fine tune the ride height with spring pads which as you may know come in different thicknesses. Mixing new H&Rs in front and leaving 25 year old springs in back may give you the squirrely handling you want to avoid.

I will say that the ride is bouncy in the front and mushy in the back when going over bumps or having people in the back. I really have no issues other than the ride. What youve got on the rear of your 16V is a lot closer to matching the H&Rs than any of the other 190s would...

since we are talking about lowering what size spring pads do 190s use stock who sells spring pad sets with a few choices in pad size

MERCEDES BENZ 190 W201 Front Springs Strut Mounts and Compressors

In the next week or two I will be replacing the front rubber strut mounts. Before I do that I will probably need to get a spring compressor. I have some simple external ones but I think an internal one would be better for this job. While I would really like to get the proper mercedes tool or the Klann set Klann Coil spring Compressor the budget will not allow it. Has anyone successfully used the Snap-onBlue

Here is the tool you need eBay Motors mercedes suspension Coil spring Compressor Tool Kit Set (item 370036406170 end time Apr-01-08 210126 PDT) If you get it I would be the first one to rent it from you. I tried the second tool you posted but I was not able to get the spring out with it.

Since I made it to a thread with such seasoned experts in suspension I have a question that I have been having a hard time getting an answer to. First a little history. I purchased a 1991 300D w124 for my wife about 4 years ago. I bought on ebay and the vehicle was not even close to the description and pics that were posted. Since purchased I have replaced the rear coil springs new bilsteins all around

Majik- From what I have seen mercedes parts with different numbers are different in some way. Even parts that are visually identical may be made of a different alloy springs may have a different rating etc.. It may be possible to interchange them but without knowing the specifications it is hard to say. Since a W124 is a little heavier than a W201 W124 suspension parts (if they fit) would probably

MERCEDES BENZ 190 W201 Replacing ball joint in front suspension.

The time has come again for the annual inspection (known as an MOT test here in Britain) and my 190E needs a lower ball joint replacing on the front suspension - this is the joint which allows the hub carrier to swivel on the lower wishbone. Also known as a steering swivel or kingpin I guess. Anyone got details of the procedure for replacing this and know of any reason why it couldnt be done at home

According to the numbers on the diagram the faulty ball joint is 10726 and it fits into the end of the wishbone 10974. Taking the front suspension to bits is no problem for me - I have coil spring compressors and stuff. What I couldnt see was how the joint fits to the wishbone. I can buy a ball joint over-the-counter at the local mercedes parts dept real cheap and I can buy a new wishbone real expensive

MERCEDES BENZ 190 W201 Front spring spacers

I have a 1990 2.6 115k on it. I have 16 inch wheels on the car and the tires rub on the fenders when I hit any little bumb or dip. Driving me mad. I thought I would get used to it but that is not the case at all. I am curious to know what options there are out there to raise the front end slightly with out sacrificing stability and ride quality any more then need be. I have heard of rubber spacers and actual things that screw into the springs themselves. Any ideas would be great guys thank you.

Unless the front struts are completely dead the struts dont affect ride height to any measurable degree thats pretty much the springs job on the mercedes suspension. You can gain some height if youre already running 1 bump spring pads so that you can move up to a 3.

MERCEDES BENZ CLASS E II 210 Front Suspension Coil Spring Just Snapped

Heading home from a little trip this afternoon still 100 miles away from home just going down the highway I hearfeel a huge bang and then some crazy binding noises. I pull off to the breakdown lane and take a look under the car and a peak at both front upper spring perches I couldnt see anything wrong. I decided to carefully roll off an exit that was not too far ahead. All the while making some really

Sorry to hear about your coil snapping I have had this happen at the back coil on an old 190E that I had in the 1990s. I would recommend just buying the springs from mercedes direct as they are not that dear. I dont know about Boston but the UK sell them for about 60 each and they are pretty easy to fit so long as you can compress them with a tool. I have just recently put lowering coils on the front

MERCEDES BENZ 190 W201 Front Suspension Bottoming Out.

When I bought my car it had a busted spring in the front. So I bought a pair of OEM standard front springs and got them installed. I also replaced the front struts with new Monroe Sens-a-Trac struts. then I replaced everything else in the front end too except the control arm bushings. So ever since the springs have been replaced it bottoms out on almost any bump and I can push the car down by hand

Maybe they sent me rears as fronts Are rear springs shorter These were pretty long out of the box. Rear springs are an incompatible (smaller) diameter. I almost wonder if they sent you 2.3 springs or something. Do

MERCEDES BENZ 190 W201 Front Suspension

I have a spring with front shock ready to install. There is a smaller spring 12inch approx. long - near the front. I have junk yard dealer who claims it doesnt exist. Any place near Kitchener (near Toronto) that has that spring Thanks

MERCEDES BENZ 190 W201 Suspension spring

I have a Mrecedes 190E it is getting a little old now The drivers side suspension spring has snapped it has been like this for a few weeks I am reasonably competent at fixing motors but have never done one of these before has anyone any hints or tips that might help I spoke to one mechanic who said that this is a common problem with the 190E. My car is lowered by the way. Thanks in advance ww

I think your mechanic is oversstating any issue with coil steel springs failing on the 190E. You didnt mention if it was the front or rear coil. The rear coils are easier of the two to change since you dont need a spring compressor to remove or install them just a good bottle jack to compress the lower arms. The front coils are longer and do need an internal spring compressor to safely install them.

MERCEDES BENZ 190 W201 Squeaky front suspension

Hello all I have a 1984 190D and the front suspension squeaks constantly when i turn or drive down bumpy roads. Most of the noise comes from the passenger side. The steering can also be a little bit stiff at slow speeds. This problem started only recently after the battery died on the car and I was forced to turn the wheel wo power steering. Does this sound like part of the steering could be broken or bent Im hoping I can fix the problem by simply lubing up the joints... Any suggestions thanks

Ball joints do not make for a good first DIY project... But nevertheless I spent the past 2 days tearing apart my passenger side suspension to fix the squeaky joint. Turning is much quieter now and I feel like the steering wheel is much tighter. I still need to replace the Drivers side joint but Im going to hold out till I get new shocks and do it all at once. I had an impossible time finding a spring

MERCEDES BENZ 190 W201 Suspension upgrade (springs and damper)

Hi Im looking for a suspension upgrade for my old w201 and in need of some advise. The plan is to race is at trackdays and still be able to use it as a daily driver well comfort is not at the top of the list but its not going to be a full out racer either. Later this year I hope to drive it to Nürburgring with my family and do a lap or two.... Im currently looking at a Weitec complete set and a H&R

ok but what about springs then.... Eibach perhaps As mentioned earlier Im looking for trackday handling. Im thinking about getting the brakes of an w124 e320 would that anti roll bar be good as well The EVOII rear bar must be allmost impossible to find for money well human money that is. Is there no alternative to that one. Im trying to keep this car on a relative low budget allthough the spring and

MERCEDES BENZ 190 W201 How thick are stock spring pads up front

Rear end is sagging a bit too much. Would like to install thinner cups between front shocks and shock mounts up top. The only ones I can find online are 8mm and 13mm. Any help would be great. Thank you. 84 190D

Quote n0alpha - 11242005 844 AM Perhaps your suspension in the back is shot. Check that first. Not sure if the 84 190D has Self Leveling System but that may be the problem. 190D had no self leveling suspension standard. you can idd try to get thicker spring pads that may pump it up a bit. Dont expect wonders if it really really sags the pads wouldnt matter enough. perhaps your springs are cut

MERCEDES BENZ 190 W201 Front springs

Gonna have to replace the front springs. I made the mistake and only replaced one on one side and now the car rides whacked. Parts Geek has Lemforders for 7075 each which is pretty good but I was kinda hoping for a slightly lower profile in the front. Maybe a 1 to 2 drop since it sits high sprung anyways. That is the wish list but if not possible for a reasonable price its off to Parts Geek. How much

Jippi This is not in the previous posts here so this is the first I have heard of it. Nonetheless if these are 1 lowering springs they will (if nothing else) put my front end right where it should be which acceptable and yet if I dont like it Ill cut a 12 twist or so out of them. I have to ask what the difference would be. front end weight I would think the 2 cars would be close to the same. Drew I

MERCEDES BENZ 190 W201 hydropneumatic suspension or front and rear SLS

Can anybody here verify if the hydropneumatic suspension on a w126 560 sel is the same used in the 190e evos Im interested in the SLS front and rear systems thanks

Hi There are two different systems 201 has SLS on front and rear axle with levels setting function. 126 has hydro-pneumatic suspension with levels setting function. The main differencies is that 126 has only hydraulic struts but 201 has coil springs and shock-absorbers with self-levelling function.

MERCEDES BENZ 190 W201 Front Springs 2.3-16

Hi I would really appreciate if someone could please tell me where in the USA can I buy the OEM original equipment( euro version) front springs for a 2.3-16 Euro version so that I can bring them to Colombia. Or if somebody knows who sells springs for this car that are a little bit harder but without dropping the height of the car. Any help will be appreciated. Thanks Isaksson9

MERCEDES BENZ 190 W201 1990 W201 1.8 Help finding part numbers for springs (front and rear) - Kinda urgent

So our 190E 1.8 needs a full set of new springs. I have downloaded the service manual listed in the FAQ as well as the Haynes manual and both are for 1988 and older W201s. Considering the 1989 and newer facelifted W201s have a 25mm ride height drop Im hesitant about using the part numbers in the Haynes manual. In addition the CD service manual also doesnt have any instructions for replacing the rear

I should hope so but again as I said the manuals I have are both for pre-facelifted models and while the enginetransmission bits shouldnt be too different even though
