Post Bilstein Hyd.Fluid substitute?

Greetings, I own a '91 300SL. It is my 4th Mercedes since 9/10/01. I had a
'79 300 SD,an '85 300 SD,and an 84 380 SL.
I have had the '91 for four years. I have spent $13,000 in that time to keep it right. Most of that on the A/C.
The hydraulic pistons in back leak when operating the top. Until I am ready to get it fixed, is there any other hydraulic oil that I can safely use that is cheaper and can be purchased off the shelf.
I live in Fla.,and it is getting to be convertible weather. Thanks,John.
