Original Lift Height on a W-200?

Postby daveleast » Mon Dec 21, 2015 10:57 am

Anyone know if this looks like the original factory lift height on my '65 W200?

Thanks! One reason I'm asking is because I need to put some shocks on it. I bought it and there weren't even any on the front and I'm not sure if the rear are correct. Have you guys been able to order straight from what the parts catalogs specify or did you have to measure yours to get it right? I've seen some threads on here where people have indicated that you couldn't trust what the parts catalogs specify.

Observations - for those with '69-'71 W200's:

All of my '68 and earlier W200's have a higher ride stance than my '69-'71's. All of my earlier W200's used the rear lift block as shown above, but my '69-'71 don't have this tall lift block, and sit a bit lower front and rear.

1970 D200: light blue, 383/NP435 4-speed, 4.10 gears

When I had my 71 W200 sitting beside my 66W100 height was definitely different. Lower suspension for sure in the 71.
