When using lowering springs is there enough adjustment on the stock UCA to adjust camber ? are there adjustable uca's available do u shim the arms for proper angles ?

with my springs, the dealer was able to adjust them dead straight without a camber kit. they did a 4 wheel alignment and worked out perfect.
the alignment can be a little tricky with these cars. It's one of the only things I had done at the dealer. most small shops don't have the neccessary equiptment to align a Mercedes perfectly.

My alignment shop said that there aren't any adjustments possible in the REAR, is this true? my rears are severely negative camber cuz of my springs.

From the factory there are eccentric bushings for the trailing arms. That's not what you're looking for though. I don't recall the specifics but there is an aftermarket camber kit for the rear. Its' been mentioned on the forum here a few times. You'll have to search for it.

I had heard that you could also use eccentric bushings from a W123 that fixed this... Would have to find that post again. Try the Google.
