rear end sagging

The rear of my W126 420 is a lot lower than the front. I am measuring from the top of the wheel well and the bumpers. Is this just a case of worn shocks and rear subframe mounts or what? If it is and I fix that, my rear will be sitting as high as the front, correct? Because if that is the case, it needs a lowering job!!! The rear actually looks right as it is, but I am guessing that is not the way it is supposed to be. If it needs to be lowered, I think I will go with H&R with #2 spring pads, but unsure of the shocks....which ones are best in this case? I don't want to give up TOO much comfort. Anyone?
