'96 E320, 104K--the recent replacement of lower control arms (with new ball joints and new Bilstein shocks) made the car drive ever so much better. My indie shop said nothing else needed to be done; everything else was pretty tight.
Today, however, in making a U-turn in a center median (median higher than the pavement and slanting downward to the pavement), when the front wheels hit the flat pavement (right, then left sides) there were two loud pops (cracks?). So, what now? What am I facing in the front suspension? Any thoughts?
P.S. The car drove straight as an arrow after the "event," with no vibration whatsoever. I'm puzzled.
