300TE hydropneumatic suspension noise

I hope someone can help me with this one. I recently purchased a 1991 300TE 4 matic and have noticed a rather loud, droning humming noise coming from the rear shocks. It can be directly heard outside and rather loud inside the car, even above the engine idle noise. Since I dont think this is normal, I would appreciate any help and suggestions as to what problem I am looking at and how to rectify it. Thanks a lot in advance.
