EVO II Suspension Issues and options

Hello Everyone
I have an original 190E 2.5-16 EVO II (# 477) that I bought used in Japan a couple of years ago (Im in central america). It is all stock except for the wheels that I put a set of 18" DTM replicas.

Since I bought the car, the car came with problems in the hydraulic suspension system.
The car did not raise fast enough, and the rear suspension came, when I bought the car, too stiff, and I change the 4 sphares (accumulators) in all 4 corners.
The rear got a little better, but then the rear felt like a citroen suspension. Too soft, and the rebound extremely slow. And Im sure that is not normal on this cars.
Now, the car did not raise at all, specailly on the front. A couple of mercedes technicians told me that there is a vlave distributor on the front that is the problem,. I have change 2 times the oil suspension pump that goes in the engine cam. But the problem persist.

I have search for different options, to eliminate the hydraulics at all and put some coil over system.
Found that H&R did a cup kit for the W201 cars, H&R part No. 31006-2

How ever, I havent found any EVO II owners that made this change on their cars.

I was wondering if anyone have used this H&R cup kit in their w201 cars. or even better EVO II owners with same suspension issues.

Tanks everyone for reading.
