I'm the second owner of this 420SEL with 88K on the odometer. I live ij Billings, MT and unfortunately have only one Benz mechanic that I have any faith in! Even then, he makes me wonder how well he follows actual Benz repair procedures! I just replaced the upper control arm and track rod bushings as well as front and rear shocks. Had the rotors turned and pads replaced also. With all this, I still hear and feel a clunking sound from the area under the drivers feet during certain turning and small bump situations. Question is this: Do I finish the front end job by replacing the lower control arm bushings and possibly the steering knuckle? I dread the cost and hassle of removing the front springs!!
Appreciate any and all of your expertise!
