Hi,
Is anyone able to tell me the MB part number for the rear coil springs on my 2008 ML280 7-speed?
Thanks

There will be three coloured paint marks on the old spring.
They are critical in the identification of the correct spring for your car.

I suggest that you buy an MB spring. Not much, if any, difference in price and it will eliminate the risk of buying the wrong spring and only finding out after you have fitted it and the car is lopsided!!

I also suggest that you take a photo of the painted stripes on your old spring to show the parts guy.
When I was buying a replacement spring that the parts guy tried to give me the wrong one when he used my VIN number to look up the correct spring. The photo was needed to convince him he was wrong. He had probably looked up the parts system incorrectly.
