1989 560 SEC
A somewhat bouncy rear end led me to consider changing accumulators, although the fluid seemed pretty clear I decided to flush the system ahead of the replacements. Used 2 quarts of Febi fluid to flush and fill.
Interestingly enough. The BOUNCE is nearly gone now?
WHAT GIVES?

Simplistically here, I am thinking air somehow.... in that a gas can compress, whilst a fluid cannot...

Thanks M. I’m going to bleed the system at the leveling valve and see if I get some foam/air to release.
