I am happy to say that my 190 E is back up and running well. Thanks to all who helped. Hope this thread can help others. Larry thanks for your detailed responses and time, it made a world of difference.
I still have one problem with the car. It still has a sight vibration on heavy acceleration between 25-34 mph. It only happens on acceleration. It's got me stumped. I replaced the rt, lt, and center tie rods, damper, idler arm, front shocks, and mounts. Had the car aligned and wheels balanced. Very little change.
