93 560 SEC Rattling from Rear

Hey guys,
Looking at buying a 93 5660 SEC with 100k miles for $2800. Old rich guys wifes car that just got driven with little concern.....like a toyota to a regular guy....driven then thrown out. Biggest problems i see our a rattle from the rear when first accelerating , possibbly drive shaft of maybe even siuspension. Sounds almost like my 77 BMW when the Rubber Coupling (like a u-joint) was going. Really rattles (bucks a little almost) untill the car starts rolling.
Car also looks like it is stting a little low in the rear but that me just be the style. Also, driver seat electrics don;t work, nor does the radio. Other then that, straight, clean runs and sounds great.
Any idea's?

Would really appreaciate the help....its my first MB.

Thank you,
Mike

RE: 93 560 SEC Rattling from Rear

Are you sure it is a 1993? The "SEC" part sounds like it is a w126, not a w140. I may be wrong. Unless you are in South Africa, w126 were stopped in 1991. If it is 91 or older, check the w126 forum. There is a FAQ sticky at the top of the page.
