Driveshaft carrier bushing is bad. I am going to replace the driveshaft support and the bearing on the drive shaft. I now know to mark the driveshaft because on my sedan that I have also, I pulled it apart without marking it. Im going to leave it in my coupe until I get the parts.
The grease is it for the little "pilot bushing" where the differential pinion yolk slides into the driveshaft? I need to call the parts in on monday so let me know about the grease
No Benzes in the stable at the moment, but itching for one again.
