Struts? Upper strut links? Is that for the hydraulis rear suspension cars? THat was only on the 560's in the US. My car has 4 shocks and no struts.
It's a given that on a Mercedes this old you replace all the suspension rubber if you want to to ride like new.

Ok, you ask how do you know if the tranny fluid is good. The answer is, pull out the dipstick and look at the fluid, is it red, or is it black? Red is good, black is bad. Feel it. Smooth is good, gritty is very bad. Richard

I trust you know that "tranny" is transmission, also known as gearbox. :-)
A dipstick is a stick (or rod) that is dipped into something. The best known one is the one for oil.

Not too far in front of the firewall on the (US) passenger side of the motor.

It has a red cap, near the firewall (between engine and passenger cabin) on what is the passengar side in the US (left side). It's really long too. Richard

It has a red cap that sits on top of the tube that contains the dipstick, with a black locking device extending an inch or so down the tube and going around half of it like a collar. The bottom part of this little collar snaps around half the tube to hold the cap on. You have to pull the collar away from the rod (it's hinged) to release the cap. Then pull the cap straight up, and it pulls the dipstick out of the rod.
