Hi
Itís nice to see my ďhow to ď on the rear suspension is still being looked at.
A word of encouragement, you donít really need a workshop to carry out this work.
Even though I have two good sized garages, I did all this work on my driveway and removal of the suspension can be carried out with a regular set of tools.
One thing is to be safe when working under the car.
Rather than use metal axle stands I prefer to use wooden batons to build up the car to a decent working height.
I used off cuts from roofing / flooring joists and still use the same blocks today when servicing my Mercedes.

Good luck anyway with the work.
