I recently had the bottom front suspension arms replaced on my E320, due to the bushes being very worn.

When I picked the car up I noticed that the front end was sitting much higher than when it when it went in to the garage. There is now a clearance of approx 80 mm between the top of the tyre and the wheel arch flange. Previously, the clearance was approx 25 mm. It looks horrendous !

In addition, the handling is horrible. The front end of the car feels very light and at 70 mph, feels like its floating!

Can anyone advise what could have happened here? I will obviously be returning the car to the garage, but would like to be armed with some sort of 'knowledge' before doing so.

Thanks in advance for the feedback. :confused::confused::confused:

Many thanks for the post.

Could you let me know the title and publisher of the book you sent the extract from?

I would like to get hold of a copy.

Just a follow up on that workshop manual....does it cover the V6 and V8 motors or is it just the 4cyl and straight 6 motors.

Cheers
