Yeah, the W210, W202 and W140 have very similar (pretty much identical) suspension designs, and so i can see that they would all be suspect. It seems though, that for some reason (that no one knows) the W210 has a much greater failure rate than other models. My tech is one of the only MB indie techs in the area (over 1M pop) and sees no W202/W140 spring perch failures.

Now, there are two dealers, and I can't say they haven't seen this.
