its not the bottoming out issue its the lack of damping the original shocks give on uprated springs you will get away with the back but the front end with the engine there is just to heavy ,
i am speaking from my own lets just try it situations on several cars and within the week there was konis bilsteins etc fitted
its alright if you poodle around like miss daisy and the roads are like marble tables but if theres any bumps especially undulating ones forget it its just not worth doing the job twice.
ps . i did not reply for an argument mate its just my findings
good stuff guys, its currently on up-rated springs and standard shocks and its very bouncey especially on the roads up here. Been looking at a few different set-ups dont find much parts for the MB's though.
