For the height, I'd be putting the 1966 230SL (needs work to get back on the road) on top and the 1997 E300D (daily driver) on the bottom. Neighboring garage bay has wife's SUV. The third bay is...

Once I sell my 450SL, I'll be down to 4 cars for the 3 car garage. I'd like to get them all under roof, so I want to get a lift. If it was just for storage, it would be a no-brainer to get a 4...

Are you talking about the rubber vacuum line to the valve actuator? If the EGR valve plumbing is blocked, then I guess you don't need that line. It should be blocked as well, not left open.
