I did this with the evoklass kit which is the same deal. Easy as pie. Did the front and rears in about 2 hours. Rears are obviously just lowering links on the w218 cars.

Did you need to bring them in to get the springs on or off?

The front shock assembly? No, but I have a coil spring compressor. You can rent one from AutoZone if you don't have one. Don't need one to put them together, but do to take apart the stockers.

No problem. If you decide you want to do it let me know and I can help you out with a video chat or something if you need it. I can tell you the springs and tools you'll need so you don't end up taking it apart and putting it back together 3 times before you actually get it all accomplished, lol.

This FB group has a guy selling HR springs and rear links for an E63 that'll work with your car for $450 canadian. About $337 US. Not adjustable up front but should give you a 3/4" front drop if that's good enough.

I looked at those as my first option, but I really want the ability to adjust the height.
