w109 suspension setting for storage

I am preparing to "park" my 67 300sel for the winter. Does anyone know the proper protocol for the suspension when the car is going to sit for longer periods of time? Do I raise the suspension and lock it? Just leave it normal? Or lock it in the normal height?
Thanks in advance for any insight!

I think it would be best to ask this on the The International M-100 Group forums. Personally, if I had one, after letting the car sit for a rew weeks to check for air leaks, I would support the car on jack stands, including the front crossmember due to the weight of the M100. You could then inspect the car, drain the fluids, i.e. the condensate in the air tank, remove the air bags and tanks for inspection and cleaning etc etc etc.

Not part of the in-crowd since 1952. It's BRAKES not breaks. You break a bone, use brakes to stop your car. /rant

Thanks!

Greetings:
Thanks for the link to the M-100 board. I suspect they will be helpful. I tried to sign up and am still waiting for the "administrator" to approve me.
