lowering 101

I have a 1988 560 SEC that I would like to lower. Is it as easy as ordering the lowering springs for H&R and replacing the shocks? What needs to be done with the leveling system in the rear? Are there other small parts that also need to replaced?

The general forum isn't too useful for a specific question like this. You're far better off scrolling down to the sedan section and clicking into the W126 forum as it is limited just to your chassis.

Also, please click user cp and edit details to add your vehicle and location to your profile; it's often useful information when you're seeking assistance.

Good luck.
