The rear shocks are interchangible from 123 and 126 I believe. the air shocks will ruin the ride of a benz I suspect.

Unless the rear is really sagged I would just let it sit down a bit and allow the suspension to do its job. You may be able to redistribute your load in the trailer a bit to lighten the tongue load.

These cars are designed to handle a load. You won't hurt them as long as you follow the guidelines in the owners manual.
