Degrading Ride

I have an S500 that I have owned for about 6 months. Like every new car owner, I loved the ride. The problem now is I think it's ride is degrading.

I have replaced the shocks with new factory shocks. It just doesn't seem to absorb the bumps on the road very well. When I hit a change in the road conditions it jolts the car severly(the ride is very smooth on a good road). It's like it doesnt have shocks at all. Seems particulary bad on the right rear.

Any ideas of where to look?

I am a new mercedes owner, so a question? Does my 96 S500 have any special suspension systems that might have gone bad(i.e. automatic load leveling, etc)
