Is this normal???? I was greatly unimpressed. how bad a job is it? from what I can see it's just a case of new front springs... and a hour or so with a set of sturdy spring clamps. I wondered what the weird noise was just before I stopped to look.. the spring managed to go a good 400yds though. MB know how to build cars with style eh? Oh, the auto box doesn't seem to do any engine braking when I drop it into 2 or 1 when slowing.. any ideas?
