  1. America Is Not a Democracy

    Off-Topic
    Iceland has a population of under 350,000, or a small city, or about 1/900 of the US. Every large country is run by a deep state of vested interests, landed gentry, corrupt businessmen, or other elusive people who shun the limelight. They're like the huge portion of an iceberg hidden below the...

  3. R350 - Probably Applies to Other Models Too Though - Front Wheel Bearings, Suspension Ball Joints and Lower Control Arm Bushings

    General Mercedes-Benz
    About to spend the weekend hopefully replacing the above. Plan A is to either buy a bearing puller or to use some threaded rod and nuts and some big sockets to jerry-rig my own puller for the bearings and bushings, ball joint splitter of the "whack it and hope for the best" sort for the ball...

  5. 350 R for the wife

    W251 R-Class
    Just remember there ain't no such thing as a cheap Mercedes. At that mileage I would get the front suspension, MAFs and catalysts thoroughly checked out and if it's still on air springs haggle the price of a coil spring conversion off the price.

    W251 R-Class
    These have been getting a LOT worse in the last few days and I've ordered new wheel bearings (needed doing anyway), lower control arm bushes x 4 and ball joints x 2. Noise sounds like a series of loud pops and bangs when accelerating gently or slowly going up a steep grade like the entrance...

    I've been f#÷king one American for the last 17 years... And with you lot for about six. 8. USS Constitution is only a 44 gunner, 22 guns per side and her crews were drilled to 2 rounds a minute.

  11. America Is Not a Democracy

    NO democracy on this planet even comes close to "true" democracy. It's an impossible goal. All we plebs can do is respond to the "bread and circuses" thrown at us, decide whose bread and whose circus we prefer.
