1991 MBZ 560 SEC

Hi All, I have a 1991 SEC with 78K miles. My question relates to the rear shock/springs - the rear shocks have no leaks, and the accumulators are fine, but while cornering a bit aggressively, the rear tends to feel a bit soft and bouncy. The car also has the upgraded thicker sway bar. The front has Bilstein struts and feels perfect, with little to no dive.

My question is that with no leaks do the SLS shocks get weak after 30 years and 78K miles? Also, thoughts on Springs, do they weaken as well? Its a heavy car, and I dont expect it to handle like a Porsche!

Thanks for the help!
