560 SEL Suspension/fluid question

The rear suspension fluid bottle under the hood on my '86 560 SEL is only half full. How much fluid is normal? Rear suspension is original. Car has 126K and is in immaculate conditon and has had all services since new.

Full level should be just about the upper rib on the bottle. The center cap comes off and has a dip stick with the full mark on it. Be sure to use only MB suspension fluid.
