I'm intalling my springs and bilstein shocks sat. and was wondering which way is right side up on the springs? I looked through all the posts on S_klass' GB and didn't find much of anything? also, is it easier to unbolt the front shock assembly from under the hood and remove it that way, or remove the whole shock/upper control arm assembley like the manual tells you too?

shouldn't be that hard. you just need to make sure you use a spring compressor when taking them apart. I was just wondering which way the springs go on. thanks guys.

It took me 3 hr fo rthe front and 45 min for the rear. The first wheels was a pain (2hr), but hten I know how to work on the 2nd one (1hr).
My tip is dont do the step no.4 like in th elink above, it is easier to unbolt the control arms from teh control arm bracket on the top of the stru. When you get there you will see what I mean.

Make sure you have air compressor and air wrench to commpress the springs otherwise it will take you 2hr to compress one spring by hand, with air tools abot 5 min ;)

good luck :thumbup:
