otherwise, all good news
does the car have SLS at the rear ??

There’s always plenty to do on these, and am sure the list will be added to as you go over the car.
Clearly the front end of the car is extra heavy on the V12, but the sinking front end is rather unusual. Don’t forget you will need the proper spring compressor to change the springs. Do no not attempt removal without researching it on here.
The other thing that will likely come about. By the time you have the springs and shocks off the car, you may well be looking at rebushing the front end. There’s a good change they will all be last their best. Unless you know they have been recently renewed already, which I think is unlikely.
Top shock bushes, upper and Lower wishbone and Vee mounts, but you may as well renew the anti roll bar bushes too. It will be obvious when you get it in the air and have a good.
How did it handle on the test drive them?
