Hi All,

I have a 1997 SL500 Sport with panorama roof. It has about 71k miles on it. It's been in my family since 1998 and became mine after I graduated from college in '06.

I have a few questions regarding the front suspension... which I'll get to... Looks like this'll be a very helpful site from the threads I saw pre-membership.

Looking forward to it.

welcome to benzworld. MANY knowledgeable people to help your sort out problems. you did a good job filling out your profile. as far as suspension at 71k you probably need shocks, and being a '97 i wouldn't be surprised if you heard a knock on sharp turns, which would be ball joints. Hearing other suspension noise on bumps is likely tie rods or bad shocks:D

Thanks, man. I'll post some pics along with questions as soon as I figure this site out... Kinda complicated to the uninitiated... at least at this hour.
