    Hello. I have a 2013 cls 250 cdi amg sport Mercedes. I want to lower the suspension front and back. I've been told my car spec doesn't support the module option as it doesn't have the right suspension for that to work.
    Are there springs that will work ? Can anyone guide me to a page or spring manufacturer that I can buy from ?
    My car I have been told has the factory suspension fitted.
    Any help would be appreciated

    Hi. Thanks for replying.
    It's mostly the front that I would like lowered. Its Its higher than the back. Would it be safer to try break into the second menu on the diagnostic's to lower ?

    The wheel arch at the front is slightly taller at the front for a very good reason .

    Certain other makes and models of car it's very obvious .

    Everything is possible if your have the perseverence and cash.
    Would this be classed as a mod to inform your insurance company as this is a mod and alter the hadling of the car, I would say yes.
    Cant help your questions, but interesting post non the less.

    Post a pic of the car, did you ask your dealer to check if the setting are correct.

    This sounds like you have airmatic fitted to the car, if so then it’s not just a change to springs, there are however lowering links that can be purchased but I’m afraid having not done it myself I don’t know the name of the manufacturer.
