Lowering front end 2014 CLS63

Trying to lower the front end to create a "raked" look, Any suggestions?
I have considered changing out the springs in the front, but outside of that, no other ideas.
Any help would be appreciated.
Tks!

I use lowering module by developer on Amazon.
www.amazon.com/dp/B07C7G3J13 www.amazon.com/dp/B07C7G3J13
The device has a manual setting and all the settings are performed using track pad and command display.
No mechanical work, no need to go to the dealer, no wires, no soldering, no car disassembling, it really couldn't be easier to change settings, or revert to stock any time.

I wrote him on email [email protected].

Tks Alfredo!
What year and model is your car? I have a self leveling air system in the rear and struts and springs in the front.....So, not sure the module you mention would work on mine. I did see those modules on Ebay and the one person I contacted told me it would not work with my air suspension.
If you have any other details on the product and where you got it, contact info, that would be helpful.
Tks for the reply!

Tks Roman,
I have a 2014 CLS63 with an air suspension in the rear......I am not trying to lower the entire car which most people do....I just want to lower the front to create a more Aggressive stance or a raked look..Just like the white E63 on the header page of the boards...Haha.......I think the only way I can do that is to change out the front springs and lower the front.....I don't think I can keep the rear higher all the time due to the self leveling system....The rear will always try to level it'self. I could probably get something from Renntech for the rear, but don't want to spend that much money....I think I can achieve the look simply by changing the front springs.

I agree with you.
Please, take some photos after installation new springs

This really seems like the way to go. Does the system remember your lowered settings so when you turn the car off and back on it will stay like that until you reset it back to stock?

OP, I called ghost motorsports when I did my drop. They are the ones that used to make the evoclass setup. They no longer make the full setup but they still had some spring perches on the shelf they sold me as well as lowering links. I put the kit together myself with some spring isolators and coilover springs up front. Really easy to do. It gave the car a pretty decent rake. I put the lowering links on just to see the whole thing lowered and I loved it so left it like that. I got everything from them for like $300 or so but had to source the isolators and springs. If you don't want the rear drop links you can probably shave $125 off that price. You can get adjustable drop links on ebay for less than $100 too that work just fine. The entire deal is easy and quick to do, maybe 2 hours of work for front and rear. Springs were $100/ea from summit. Isolators were 25ish and you need 2 sets. The cool thing about this is you can choose what spring rate you want to run. The car rides too hard then get a softer spring, want to stiffen it up then get a harder one. I got #300 springs and can't tell the difference from stock. This is the car with rear dropped as well. Don't think I have any shots with the rear end still up. It's about a 1.5" drop front and rear. Both are fully adjustable. I could get about another 1.5 lower or higher in the front and probably 2.5 both ways in the rear.
