Need some proper braking?
The 200 series has assisted brakes and stops like any modern car, quickly and safely. Need some new brake pads? EBC make some fast stopping green stuff for the W114/W115 discs stocked at Need for SpeedEBC Green Stuff brake pads
EBC also make some regular Black Stuff pads for the W115, supplied by Need For SpeedEBC Black Stuff
EBC also make replacement discs to complement their pads and they have a wide selection for most if not all the 200 series W115 models, again stocked at Need for Speed in pairs, so good value.EBC brake discs

Black Diamond also make some performance brake discs, if you want upgraded braking for your 200. Need for Speed stock the rear disc in pairs.Black Diamond rear disc
Need for Speed also stock 2 types of Tarox performance discs, sold in pairs, so quite good value, though only for the 240D it seems, but I'll find out if they fit other modelsTarox G88 grooved brake discs pairTarox Sport Japan brake discs pair
Mercedes still stock all the OEM parts for W114/W115 models, but if you want something a bit more special, you can usually find it. Spax manufacture an adjustable shock absorber to vary the rebound and damp for W114/W115 200 series models and Need for Speed stock them at a great priceSpax adjustable shocks
I am about to fit a similar set of KYB Adjustable Gas Shocks on the front of the 220, in an effort to tighten the front suspension a little without the expense of getting new springs, in which case I'd rather replace most of the suspension components, as the rubber bushings are close to perishing and the undercarriage components need restoring or replacing.
These came new with the car when I bought it, so I presume they can be found in most auto factor places, about £40 each.
Replacement springs I have found manufactured by a Swedish company called Lesjofors
and are stocked by most autofactor places.
The Lesjofors part numbers are:
If anyone knows of other suitable springs or shocks, please feel free to add a comment below or email me.
