Kevin, do yourself a favor and rent the proper compressor (Klann?). its available from Rusty, Performance Products, maybe MercedesShop. It makes the job routine (10 min. per spring). I just rented one a few months ago to lower my 300E. Also, for the fronts, you only need to support the control arm with a jack, disconenct the lower strut mount, insert the compressor and roll. Fine tuning by changing the spring pads only required the car to be jacked up. External threaded rod type compressors are difficult as they will enlarge the whole assembly and not allow it to move. The internal type availabe for free loan from Auto Zone would not fit into the ascess holes. BE SAFE! Hanno
