'82 500SEL four corner hydraulic suspension parts?

A friend has an '82 500SEL with a marginally functioning four-corner hydraulic suspension. It will rise up to correct ride height but seems to involve "phases of the moon" or the square root of the last set of winning Powerball numbers. We give up trying to make it work and I have four H&R springs and Bilstein shocks to install.

Is there any want or value for the hydraulic suspension parts we're about to remove? How would I find someone that wants to buy them??

Pasted this in the W126 forum too.

I may be interested in the valves and struts.
