And another oddity...when cold (I mean really cold, below 20F) there is a huge squeaking noise (rubber on metal?) from the rear suspension...any thoughts on how to correct are appreciated!
ps: due to work, had to introduce the SL to the northeast from florida...and I think she is complaining!
Hi DSCOTTJONESSCH and welcome aboard the R129 boards.

My guess would be the 'squeaking noise' is coming from bushings. It makes sense that during really cold temperatures rubber hardens and contracts therefore creating the 'sqeaking noise' is what my initial suspicion would be.

You may wish to first try and lubricate the rear suspension bushings as RKH has mentioned. If you decide to try this, it is important to use a silicone based lubricant and do not use any petroleum or oil based lubricants as it deteriorates and eats through rubber. Good luck and keep us posted!

Best Regards. :thumbsup:
