C320: I have a 2003 C320 and do not know if it has sports suspension.

Customer Question

I have a 2003 C320 and do not know if it has sports suspension. My tires are 225/45R17 91W and vin is WDBRF84J73F385175. It is a 4 door sedan and says Sport on the outside trim panel but I do not know it that means it has a "sports suspension". I am getting shocks and I need to know which suspension it has.

Hello, check all 4 of your tires and the sticker on the side of the drivers door jamb that stated the tire size, if you have offset tires then you have the sport suspension, which of course is why it says sport on the side of the car. i cant believe your dealer did not know this. i will also check the vin but those are the dead give aways.

I called the Parts department and gave them the vin and they said it does not specify if it is sport suspension or not. The tires are all the same size. The mercedes shocks are $285 and I can get Bilstein's for much less on line. But I have to know if it is sports suspension

So if the tires are all the same and are low profile and are 225/45R17 91W and it is a four door sedan that says "Sport" on the outside trim, is it a sports suspension? It might just mean sports interior. I have to know for sure to order the shocks. Thanks
