While replacing many worn out parts on my new to me 1992 300sl - new brakes and rotors, new shocks, struts, front wheel bearings and more. Amazing to find all the broken plastic pieces after 27 years, and some things are a surprise. I wondered why my right front wheel hit the fender liner on bumps in turns - besides the strut was shot the bump stop was missing on that side. How does that happen? Lots of deferred maintenance, but motor and trans are strong at 84k and going thru bit by bit fixing, replacing things that have to get done to enjoy this ride! New motor mounts, trans mount, flex discs also made a huge difference, did those last week.
