I have noticed a oil leak (hydraulik fluid) on the rear right side of my 560 SEL(1989).

I haven't had time to investigate where it actually leaks.

How much trouble is it to convert the hydraulik system to a standart shock absorbers?


Appreciate any info,
Thanks,
Mike

Its more work to convert than to repair the sls. Its a great system and i installed it, because my car had none.

The shocks itself could have a leak, the gum hose on top could have one or the screw connection at the upper end is leaky. Take out the rear seat and you will find plastic caps in the rear wall. Behind them you can see the hose ending at the hydraulic cylinder.
