2003 C180 suspension

Afriend of mine just bought a C180 2003 and wants to lower it.
What type of suspension setup does this car have?
Has it changed from the previous model?
Opinions on lowering procedure plz.

The W203 chassis uses coil-over struts in the front, however the rear suspension is still just like the W201(190E) that came out in 1983.

Springs. Use shorter springs.
