Only had 4 months, didnt notice till later(of course ) . More issues with front suspension than back. Back end I noticed rear suspension front mounts, one side toast . But been working on fuel filter assembly. Gonna replace flex disc rear while I'm on the area . But where are these so called "spheres "? Don't see it

Tried using this penetrating oil. Awesome, but stinks up the whole house.

Quick SLS test

Place 300 lbs of anything in the trunk. The rear end will likely sag. Start the engine and press the accelerator pedal to get 2500rpm. Hold for 30-60 seconds; rear end should rise up to level.

Take the weight out, and go for a ride. The rear end should adjust lower to level over a few miles.

If that doesn't happen, SLS is not working.

Not related to the SLS system, but IIRC the 4Matic vehicles are supposed to sit a notch higher than their 2WD brethren.

Your front definitely sits too low, unless the front suspension has been modified/tweaked.
