Let us see some proper pictures! I wanna see in the trunk!
Here is a picture of my w140 install:


A slightly belated welcome to the forum btw, good to have another like minded w140 owner on here...

That reminds me of the 2000 S500's airmatic suspension! lol jk. You must be really worried about speed bumps and potholes though.

Welcome to the forums.

Man, that install is so neat and tidy. Really nice work with the hardlines to the dumps. And tucked in the wheel well to keep the boot (trunk) space is inspired. Who did the install?

I am intrigued to know how smooth it will roll with those accumulators - I stuck with regular shocks on my w140, but took them off the front when chipping at a show or whatever. I've built cars with accumulators before (Benz w123 and w126), but I never really got a good ride out of them - found the cars wallowed on back roads.

Will you have lock-offs on those accumulators? - the car will move really quickly if you can lock them off... Couple of the guys in the UK run electric lock-offs and they work really well!
