  1. W211 E-Class
    What brand and part would you select to replace this strut? Would you replace the spring too?
  2. C208/A208 CLK-Class
    Greetings! Longtime lurker... first time poster. I bought an '02 AMG Cabrio a couple months ago and have been making my rounds with some small cosmetic stuff. The car needs new bushings everywhere! I'm going to start an entire suspension rebuild, but my question specifically is lower control...
  3. W210 E-Class
    When turning left at moderate speeds (30mph+), I hear a grinding noise from the rear of the car. I haven't noticed this whilst turning right or when cornering at lower speeds. I have also had this noise whilst reversing onto a raised pavement on my driveway, the same grinding noise whilst the...
  4. W124 E,CE,D,TD Class
    Hello, While replacing my 300e's front struts, lower ball joints and tie rods, I've run into a problem. I got the outer tie rod ball joint removed, but I can't get the inner one off. Even when using the proper tool. I tried hitting it with a hammer to no avail (it was a stupid last resort). My...

    Hey guys I just got a 2012 c250 4 matic but I can’t find any lowering springs for it since companies only make springs for the rwd variant. Dosent anyone knwo a company that makes the springs for the 4 matic, or has anyone tried putting c300 or c350 springs on it. Any info helps.
  7. W210 E-Class
    I have a 1999 E55 avantguard. My local dealers say they think it’s been lowered and it does have a hard ride and the springs do not have the coloured stripes that the originals would have had. The car has travelled 240kms and I don’t know the history, so I figured I’d go to new factory springs...
  8. R230 SL-Class
    This is my 2nd SL55. My 1st was a lovely '03 (with all the issues those early years came with). I upgraded to a 2007 P30, but the ride is killing me on the terrible NY roads here. My bad getting a "track" car as a daily driver. The rear jumps laterally when going over bumps on a curve & is harsh...

    Preface Know there are other threads on this general topic, but couldn't find one with precisely what I seek. So apologies if this is beating a dead horse. Checked MBWorld and others too. Any guidance from knowledgeable folks much appreciated. Hopefully this thread can help others looking to...

  11. W203 C-Class
    Will get to the point… I can clearly see parts weren’t changed out on this car in a very long time if not since day one as well as condition of rusted bolts. It is now about 140k miles) bought about 115k about a year ago almost) and my rear springs I’m replacing, but my front, one of the springs...

    Hi Community another delemma here, Can anyone tell me why the SLS just started working on my 1985 300TD Wagon? The SLS has needed repair for a while and was the next fix on the list when funds became available. We never overloaded the rear due to the suspension needing an overhaul. I drove this...
  13. W203 C-Class
    Hi all, I'm new here. Please forgive me if this is something that's been discussed already, but searching hasn't returned any results so here I am. Last fall, I replaced all front suspension components on my C240 and this spring I plan to do the rear and lower the car on H&R springs. I have...
  14. W211 E-Class
    My 2005 E500 apparently needs the rear subframe mounts replaced. Does anyone have an idea of the amount of parts (cost) and labor (hours) to complete the repair? Are there any replacement part recommendations/ things to avoid? I will be taking the car to my local German car repair shop for the...

    Hi, I am in the process of changing from struts on my 2014 E-500. I do not want the 4matic or any kind of electronics on them. Going thru the online stores, i found some that have no 4matic or vehicle dynamics package or sport suspension. The store technician said that they only sell...

    Hi all Just got my paws on a very nice C230 V6, in pretty much excellent condition. Chassis wise, comparing it to my BMW E46 330i it feels like the chassis is not quite good enough for the V6. Will C32 and C55 suspension parts fit straight onto my coupe. And lastly, if i want to be daft, can...
  17. W124 E,CE,D,TD Class
    Does anyone have the torque specifications for all of the rear end parts for the W124 estate? I am planning to replace both SLS struts, along with all the arms and bushings soon.
  18. W124 E,CE,D,TD Class
    Hey everyone! Long time reader on here and finally made a profile - I have a suspension question that I haven't read in 5 pages of a search so I thought I would make a thread. I'm new to the Mercedes world but have a 1987 W124t 300TD - it came with the current setup and I'd like to make it...

    Hi all, My first post on this forum but I think I'm here to stay. I own a 2007 face-lift w211 320cdi with the Airmatic suspension system and I love it. Both the right front and rear struts were refurbished less than a year ago. There are 2 issues: 1. The rear dips equally on both sides...
  20. W123 E,CE,D,CD,TD,TE Class
    Hello, I am going to change all 4 shock absorbers of my 240D with new ones from Sachs. Currently when the weather is cold, I am hearing very loud noises from the front while passing on speed bumps. I heard that it might be the shock absorbers causing it but is there any other thing that I...
