I went to get the alignment done for my 1972 Mercedes 280 SEL 4.5L after replacing most of the front and rear suspension parts. The shop found some play in the passenger’s side upper inner control arm (1/16th to 1/8th inch). There is no appearance that the bolt has loosened so they speculate that maybe there were shims in there that disintegrated over the years. Has anyone encountered this problem and if so what did you do? I am tempted to soak the bolt in with an anti-rust solvent for several days in a row and see if I can tighten it by hand to remove the play. Does this sound plausible?
