Does anyone know the scrub radius for a W140 with the stock 16 inch rims? Or even if it is positive or negative? Been Googling all over but can't find it.

Just curious ...What's the need for this level of suspension/dynamic specifications?

Changes to any aspect of the suspension will affect the handling of the car. Scrub radius is often forgotten but is no less important than any of the other aspects. Making a positive radius more so improves straight line stability (which I want) at the expense of heavier steering (which I can tolerate). Increasing castor will do the same but with many more negative side effects.
