ok, me and eurostyle(well mostly him), did it on my old e28. all you need, is eye protection(for when the stuff squirts out), drill and a drill bit, and a wall. Drill a hole in each shock. its quite easy. have fun

Just remove the bumpers, drill a small whole in each shock and let the puss drain out. ReInstall the bumper and use a large rubber mallet to bash it in closer to the body. Here is mine after the tuck.
