There seems to be several different front springs for my car such as difference in length so I am a bit confused as to which will fit and any suggestions would be appreciated

Your springs have colour coded paint dots on them that help narrow it down , at least for MB parts

I went through the options for a 124 for a friend with the rubber bits there was ~24 different variants...

I’d be asking Mercedes with your vin to give you the details - ask for a quote and you should get the part numbers

Would my car have standard suspension or sports?

Mercedes can tell you from the Vin / number plate. A Vin decoder can give you some info but not exactly which springs you need

I’d double check that you have the correct part number the last set of springs I ordered from MB were wrong (MBs fault) even though I gave them the VIN that caused utter chaos when my local garage tried to fit them. I can look back and smile now but it wasn’t funny at the time mainly due to the fact that I had to pay twice for the job to be done
