Thank you seems to be too superficial to say to BC Racing & CoiloverDepot for what they have done for any owner of a Mercedes Benz SL (R230) 2003+... These coilovers are THE HOLY GRAIL!! The R230 had a well over engineered(numerous vulnerable joints/connections)suspension (hydraulic) from Mercedes that led it to be vulnerable for reliability. Mercedes had offered a conventional suspension on European models only... Nothing stateside. You may find other companies in the US offering a solution for the R230 suspension. I have researched this for over 7 years...CoiloverDepot and BC Racing are the ideal solution for the adjustability and quality!! Lastly, I am attaching a photo to assist any owner of a R230 in regards to the rear coilovers. Since these are adjustable, you'll want access to the top of the coilover. My picture shows you where to cut a simple access hole that also saves you hours of needless labor trying to get at it-
Oh...One last tip...On the rear R&R...Remove only the 1 bolt on the lower control arm closest to the differential. Much easier!! You'll also need a T-55 for the bolt head!! Jack the exhaust up to have room to completely remove the bolt out. So simple :)
Best wishes to BC Racing & CoiloverDepot for continued success! You ROCK!!
