Funny you should ask! I talked to him earlier and after explaining the local guy couldn't find anything wrong he told me that he is willing to bet that my rear differential mount is shot/collapsed and that most guys would overlook it as a potential issue.

Bingo! Check out the photo. That is not good. And that could very likely be the culprit, ladies and gents!! Agenda #1 right after New Year's!

Thank you, Pierre. View attachment 2614482
That mount is definitely collapsed, just like the ones on both our SEC and SEL. Unfortunately, I didn't see a big change after replacement with MB parts. Hope it fixes your car.

It's worth a shot and needs replacing, regardless. Thankfully I can drive the car and not worry about any safety issues. Those rear tires are already kind F'd so more uneven wear is not a worry. Whatever. I'll be replacing them soon.
