Front Suspension 'Rough'
Since buying my W124 I've had issues akin to worn shocks and/or worn upper mountings. It felt like the wheel was hopping. Since one of the shocks was bouncing excessively I opted to change both shocks, upper mountings and rebound rubbers. I still have exactly the same issue when driving over road undulations.
I've checked the lower ball joints (taking up the spring pressure under the wishbone and then checking for freeplay) - nothing found, also found no play in the tie-rod ends or steering bushes. However, I did find that the steering damper was worn, collapsing and expanding with relatively no resistance. Could this cause the symptoms I'm feeling?
