Ball Joint/Lower Control Arm Question
So I bought a 95 E320 Wagon in December 2016, $350.00 with 327,xxx miles.
I put Fresh paint on it a week ago, Jade Green metallic: paint code 300.
Serviced the tranny, still slight flare between 2-3 & 3-4 gears (was worst before)
Before I decided to purchase the car I've seen a few parked along the highway with one front wheel straight forward and the other at a 90 degree angle...
So I figure I'd be proactive and order me some ball joints. The Parts House sold me a pair that can be installed into the LCA.
Well it seems like the previous owner replaced the lower control arms with ones from a 93 300E because my 95 E320 LCA looks weird...Why am I being punished?
Can some one confirm this for me.
The arms that are installed on the care right now has an angle where the ball joints are, and the two ears are not there to receive a tool.
I don't have pics tonight but would produce some in the morning.
BTW my 95 Wagon LCA looks just like those on the OP pics.
