Hmm does it have 4 accumulators? one for each wheel? I bet it rides amazing. the sls in the wagon is mainly for cargo capacity, in the all wheel models, I suppose it's for handling/comfort. better than a new set of bilstines I bet!

I think the SLS was a desirable accessory to have for towing. The Euro, 82 240D that I had once had the OEM hitch and SLS. Thats what I was told anyway.

I don't think you could get the 4 wheel HPF system on anything other than the S class. Rear SLS still has coil springs (as you know), the 4 corner system doesn't have springs.

The 116 6.9's came with SLS. Four accumulators, no springs. If the system went kaput the whole car would just squat They came with big rubber emergency blocks in case a shock ***** the bed.

The engine driven "puck" pump on the 6.9 looks a lot like diesel wagon pumps.

116's are pretty nice handling driving cars and SLS is supposed to make it even better

I've often thought this would be cool in my SD.

ditto.
as much as the SD squats with even a partially full trunk, SLS WILL be going in my SD!

I'd think the 2 wheel system wouldn't be that bad to retrofit.

There was an absolutely incredible black-on-black european-special-import w123 300d on eBay from a California specialty dealer several years ago with four-wheel SLS.

It actually didn't generate that much activity, much less than the dealer expected anyway. It was absolutely pristine, in the pics.

According to a local guy who had one, like a very large sports car.

Which sadly prompted him to park it in the treeline in the wee hours of one morning, when he forgot the definition of "freezing rain."

He doesn't know how fast he was going, but it way too fast (obviously) for the curved highway offramp he tried to take at autobahn speeds. He left the road and it rolled at least three, he says possibly five times.

He says he opened the door, took of his belt and walked to get help.

He rolled so well into the trees that he was able to leave it there right through the day, and come back at nighttime with a big recovery truck, when police presence is infrequent on that road, and pull it out of the bush with no pesky law enforcement questions.

Sorry, another of my digressions....

The engine driven pump on the 6.9, is the same pump as the TD uses. I pulled one off a 6.9 last summer, not a nickles worth of difference between the two. last time I checked prices on a new pump was like $1200.

Transplant a TD engine in a 6.9 with a clapped out motor... I believe 6.9's were long wheel base sooo a 300sd with SLS would be cooler but harder to pull off.

Didn't some 126's come with SLS?

Wonder why no one's done that yet?

If you can put a 560 motor into a w123, that certainly sounds do-able....

It was optional for 1991 on the SD and SDL. The 560 had rear SLS standard.

Get one of these:



One of these:

The Mercedes-Benz 6.9 Home Page


And build an UberBenz!

It would probably be a good idea to have a 300SD around for bits. Transplant the aluminum SD parts to the 6.9 as well...
