is the rear Multilink rebuild on a w201 a diy job?

is this job a diy job? or is this a four letter work job?

my rear suspension is "creaky" after I installed new shocks. I think the higher stance of the car disturbed the old rubber on the links.

where do you suggest I buy the links?

How long have you been living with the creak? It might settle down in a few days / miles...

...is there another reason other than the creak to consider doing this job (other than fun of course)?

it's always fun if you have a second car to drive (if you get stuck) but not fun if it is your only car i guess.

201 is virtually identical to the 124.
My son and I did ours a couple of years back, and it was not that difficult.
