I just put in new wheel bearings tonight. I built a stand just like what mercedes describes in the manuals. I checked the hubs for play after my installation of new bearings, there wasnt even .001 inches of play. My mitutoyo indicator didnt even move (mitutoyo is one of the best brands).
THE brakes still squeak.
The car handles better with the new bearings.
So far, I have new master cylinder, new front pads, new rotors, new bearings, etc.
Any more recommendations.
No Benzes in the stable at the moment, but itching for one again.
