So apparently the euro-spec W126 sedans (at least the 560) was offered with a hydropneumatic suspension similar to what the 6.9 had. Does anyone know anything about this? Is there any chance that it used the same parts as the 6.9's suspension?
To my knowledge, there's never been a 300SD with a hydropneumatic suspension. Reason being is the 300SD was a low end model. Rarely do you see low ends with expensive options. I am sure it could be done, but it will e labor intensive and expensive.H-TownBenzoboy - 4/12/2005 12:23 AM
Has anyone ever seen a 300SD with a hydropneumatic suspension? I think it could be done. All that's needed is a rear suspension and necessary suspension components from a 560SEL equipped with a hydropneumatic suspension and an OM617 engine from a 300TD. That would be pretty nice.
You're thinking of the 6.3 and the W111 chassis 300SE/SEL it was based on. Those had air suspensions; the 450SEL 6.9 had a hydropneumatic system similar to the ABC system on the current S/CL/SL600.nckmsn - 4/13/2005 10:49 PM
If I remember right, the 6.9 had air suspension
