i know it can be done in an xf,, the rear suspension is pretty much the same in the E series cars,, it makes life much easier if you do have one however,, just take the shocks out, and allow the diff to fall as far as possible,, maybe even take off the watts link to allow for more travel?

Hmmm... also depends on how low the new ones are... you could always cut the old ones out in their spot... he he.. ring any bells?

Cheers
