Here's a loaded question.

How "Sensitive" is the Mercedes suspension to be repaired by a tire shop? The shop I buy my tires from does a lot of suspention work - but I don't see Mercedes in the lot.

So yes, I think the shocks need replaced. That's easy - 140K on the original shocks.

My concern is that when you take a car to a shop for inspection, they will have someting to fix. So if I say, does the suspention need repaired, they will say yes.

Your thoughts and suggestions are appreciated.
Thanks for the help
