Quote"the rear mounts of the lower control arm are on the upper side of the cross yoke. Generally, the yoke must be lowered with the lower control arms still attached to it. They can be separated once off the car".

If you're going to remove the springs, you need a special spring compressor (https://www.lasertools.co.uk/Product/4870/Coil-Spring-Compressor-for-Mercedes-Benz) that can safely handle the load.DO NOT attempt this job with off-shelf spring compressors if you value your life. Once the springs are out it's a much easier, and safer job.
Quote from: gurrier on 19 August 2022, 03:35 AMSteveDuNord,I also have a spring compressor-not the type as shown by ptashek. I can still remember the spring flying past me, the only casualty being a bruised thumb. Spring travelled maybe twenty feet - luckily not through me.Bill
