i've done the same job on a 450SEL. it's the same principle on a mercedes and they fail in the same way (fluid in the sphere where the nitrogen is meant to be) the spheres/accumulators aren't rebuildable but the dampers/shock absorbers are - the pressure they hold is a bit dangerous however! (the pressure was enough that fluid shot out during disassembly that went clean through a rag we were using to protect our hands)

i think febi or beru make the accumulators for mercedes-benz. we paid about $220 a unit in AUD. (they were OEM parts, not official mercedes however)

does the 959 have a damper/shock absorber with fluid in it, or is it like a ring on top?

PS. Wayne - Hello from Australia, just finished reading 101 projects and how to rebuild and modify and i must say they're awesome! nice 959 too.
