I have a 1988 MB 190E 2.3. I have a noticable rattle in the front end. I tracked the noise down to the driver side strut. The boot is all broken up on top and the strut is making a rattle every time I hit a bump.
I can push the front end up and down and reproduce the same noise as on the road and I can see the strut moving around. Do I need to replace just the boot or do I need a new strut tower as well. How hard is the install? Would I need a spring compressor.
Thanks in advance.
