Are you not sure whether the chassis fits your vehicle? The coilover kit from VOGTLAND offers individual lowering with a sporty preset damper characteristics. With this quality product, only special high-performance 2-tube dampers are used with low gas pressure system and first-class corrosion protection. In connection with the individual housing length tailored to your vehicle type, make full use of the existing spring travel for your own personal depth setting. And all this in the -tested area.
You don't even have to do without the required residual spring travel. The sporty, comfortable tuning enables top road holding and excellent driving characteristics. Depending on the vehicle brand, the permissible adjustment range is up to 80 mm and guarantees a sporty look. The level of lowering is reduced by the level of the factory lowering. The measure of the lowering will be reduced by the measure of the sport suspension.
Wedge shape: The lowering of the front axle depends on the equipment and engine variant. Wedge form: The lowering of the front axle depends on the equipment and weight of the engine.
As of chassis number: 21234. For fine tuning, please use Mercedes-Benz spring plate pads, which are available in different thicknesses (8 - 23 mm). For fine tuning, please refer to the Daimler Benz spring insolators available in different heights (8-23 mm).
