....at the workshop in a small town in Germany. I replaced all the rubber
bearings of my front axle, the kinkpins, the shocks, the brake discs and
pads. Well, I have to tell you something: The car handles like new
So before you fiddle around with the steering box look for the rubber material. Thats where the play usually comes from.
Cool picture and shop!! I have recently replaced a lot of the steering rubber and things of that sort on my w124 and I say the same. I even had a nice compliment by a member of the female gender....yes believe it or not I let her drive Sadie :mrgreen:
Well, some of the rubbers really looked scary. One of them at the upper
strut totally desintegrated. I can strongly recommend everybody to check
the axles very carefully. They really make the difference.
Nice little shop Eberhard...Yours?
Well, it is actually three of us who rented the shop. (it is me in the
front and actually two other friends, but at least you get an idea) It used
to be a real repair shop and we took over all the equipment, like a SUN
Digital Tester, the jack, the compressor and air system etc. To make it
even better, I rented the apartment just above the shop. To live together
with you automobiles can't get any better :)
Great pics Eberhard ! I am doing mine this week!! :)
ps: My family came over from Germany in the late 1800's. It is nice to be able to converse with someone who is a Mercedes enthusiast AND from Germany as well!
Hi guys. I'm new to cars, so don't be pissed off. What are these rubbers? Are they important, can you get into an accident if they're not in good shape? I mean, will they not handle the car properly if they're bad?
you've come to right place. as long as you check the rubbers, there shouldn't be a problem. but i've never heard of someone gettin in an accident and that be the cause, cuz i always get mine checked, and i guess i don't really think about askin people about it, i'll check around though
Ya...always check your rubbers!! ;)
::old thread reviver::
ill avoid the obvious condom joke :D
AMEN!!! I wish i had known that before i bought a new Flaming River steering box for my stang. LISTEN TO THIS!!! I IMPLORE YOU!!! IT"S TRUE I SWEAR!! haha it would have saved me some frustration if i had figured this out a few years ago.
I used to be in the motor trade and had to replace a few of those bushes on Mercs, and boy did they give me some crap!
