Finally, you have found it! An answer to repair & fix that sagging & leaking rear end on your W123 300TD Wagon.
Replace the overcomplicated, leaky and expensive Self Leveling Suspension "SLS" system on your 1978-1985 Mercedes 300TD Wagon with this maintenance free and conventional coil spring setup. Don't waste your time with incorrect Sedan springs that will cause your wagon to bottom out and ride terribly.
These high quality, heavy duty conventional coil springs will allow you remove your SLS system and retain stock ride height, handling and heavy duty load rating from the factory. NO MODIFICATION REQUIRED, 100% BOLT ON SYSTEM. Works great for 300TD owners who haul lots of people, gear, or have large capacity veggie oil tanks but are tired of their wagon bottoming out!
Purchase the complete kit with Sensen Brand Shocks (made with Japanese Nok Seals, used by many Euro OE Companies) or purchase your own Bilstein shocks from your favorite parts retailer for a w123 300D sedan (part number provided for this option).
The SLS pump and hoses are removed from the engine which decreases vehicle weight, provides more engine compartment space and makes the installation easier. The block off removal plate includes one 1/4" thick MADE IN THE USA aluminum plate, 4 bolts, and a tube of silicone.
Replacing just the SLS struts for the SLS system is nearly impossible as they have been discontinued for a few years now and your only option are used struts. Replacing the entire system can run $3000 or more plus labor. The SLS system is a great concept but is very costly and has many components that leak and fail over time.

I purchased my first w123 Wagon in 300TD with a broken rear suspension in 2006. I tried for hours to find a solution to the sagging rear end. I found the sedan spring kit which was almost no different than the broken SLS system. After hours of frustration, I decided to bring the Benz in the garage and design custom springs along with sedan shocks that would fix this overcomplicated broken suspension. After some trial and error, we designed a pretty nice conversion that allowed us to maintain the stock handling and load capabilities. This is not a business for me but just a fun hobby of helping other Benz owners who run into the sagging suspension. These are great vehicles and they all deserve to stay on the road for many years to come. Over the years, I have met many nice folks all over the world I've shipped these kits almost every continent on earth and hundreds of thousands of miles have been put on customer's springs. I am always available for questions, feel free to send me an email anytime!
