Post New member with a 1998 E320 Wagon

Hi everyone I am a new member & I own a 1998 E320 Wagon. My name is Rene & I do have a problem with the rear shocks. other than that so far so good, this is my first Mercedes. I have been a Machinist for over 30 years & I always do most of the repairs on all the cars I have ever owned.
Has anyone changed the rear self leveling shocks on a 98 E320 wagon . Is it a big deal? Does the system have to be bled? Does it share the same hydraulic fluid with the power steering pump? Can I just simply replace the shocks & Accumulators and not have to do anything else about bleeding the system or other adjustments to the system?
The current shocks are leaking and the car is bouncing badly due to this problem. I currently bought new shocks & new accumulators & I am anxious to put them in. I also would like to purchase a repair manual Cd-Rom for this 98 E320 if anyone has one I can buy.
Thanks in advance for anyone's help.
