If you haven't got your parts yet, give Tom Hanson of Caliber Motors (MB dealership) a call in Anaheim Hills, Calif. (1.800.CALIBER). Tell him you're part of the Mercedes club, and that I sent you.
You might be amazed at the pricing for GENUINE MB parts, which have a 1-year warranty honored by ALL MB dealers.
I would definitely do this for accummulators and esp. the self-levelling valve.
BTW: why the dealer for just the labor? FWIW, to change the accummulators, valve, flush the system (1-qt. of hydraullic suspension fluid) and a new suspension fluid FILTER (get it), should take no more than 2-2.5 hours. I've done this procedure for both the wagon and the 500E.
