300TE 4MATIC to 400E front suspension / brake conversion

I have a customer I did work on his 93 500SL
has a wrecked 93 400E that I will be helping part out

It was a head on collision, though I think the front suspension components are still good.

Since my TE 4M is showing signs of the dreaded TC hydraulic leak
I was thinking of removing the front axle CVs and front driveline
then transferring the 400E brakes, knuckles, hubs, springs, sway bar, etc...
whatever that is transferable.

That way, if the conversions is possible then I can have options for affordable lowering springs
(since 4M springs are either non existent or too expensive)

then later I'll drop the TC and mount a RWD tranny
or just transfer a RWD tranny tail housing if that is possible

Thoughts anyone...
