Removing Rear Springs

1992 BMW 325i

I am trying to adjust my rear Bilstein PSS Coil Overs to a higher ride height. From my research(and from what I can see) it looks like you need to remove the rear coils to adjust the collars because the spring perch is in the way. I jacked up the car, unbolted the lower shock mount and now it looks like the axle is what is preventing the suspension from lowering (It says this in the Bentley manual as well). How do I go about removing the rear axle? There is very little light in my underground parking, it seems like the bolts are some sort of star nut? Am I imagining things? When I unbolt the axle(If I can find the right tool) does it just disconnect, no messing around with diff fluid etc?
