Merc 260E Bouncy Suspension

Hi there, I have just bought a Merc 260E 1990 model with hydraulic rear suspension, it bounces around on the road (it's very hard) someone told me it could the the rear spheres,the regulator valve, I don't know what you think but I'd appreciate any help you can give me or if you can advise me on how to diagnose the problem.

Thank you

Dave Hattingh

I'm not familiar with that model but in general a stiff hydropneumatic suspension indicates bad nitrogen spheres. There's one for each side in the rear. I'm not sure what they cost but in some cases they can be repaired.

Do a search on nitrogen spheres for more information.
