I changed the reservoirs on a 1980 300TD wagon I had, and if I remember correctly, I jacked the car up, then used another jack to raise each rear wheel to compress the strut. That assured as much fluid as possible was replaced from each strut. A little time consuming, but I think it managed to put more new fluid in the system than would have been possible without doing so.

Ted, How many miles did you have on your 560SEL when you changed the struts?
1997 S600 Coupe
2002 Lexus SC430
2004 Lexus RX330 (wife's car)
1993 500 SEL
1994 E320 (wife's car)
1987 300 SDL
1978 450 SEL
1980 300 TD (wife's car)
1969 280 SL
