Some 126's had rear self leveling system (SLS). Instead of a rear shock, there are struts with an accumulator, and hydraulic fluid, a pump, a valve, etc. Mostly 560 series in the US, other models rest of world.

SLS is the Self-Leveling-System. It lifts the rear end of the car up to properly ride height when loaded down.
SLS came on all the US spec 123 wagons, and was an option for 123 sedans in Europe. MB has put the SLS into many cars over the years.

Markus I believe I have some if you dont end up finding any. I'm slow to get around to shipping things so pickup is better... either way let me know.
