Your mechanic won't need to touch the air suspension to change the rear ball joints. Access is pretty easy once the wheel is off and the lower shock mount is undone.

What the mechanic WILL need is the special BMW ball joint removal/installation tool (or an aftermarket copy tool). Generic tools don't work on this particular joint due to clearance issues... Check they have one of these tools before they commence working on your car.
