wind sensitivity.......

I recently replaced the front sway bar bushings on our 190E with 105k mi. I did it only because of age and mileage, ease of the job, cheap parts, and I was under there replacing tranny mount and exhaust hangers anyway. Sort of 'padding' the parts bill to amortize shippng costs.

Wind sensitivity had been noticebly higher than I liked, and it immediately and unexpectedly improved after this repair. Note that the old bushings did not appear loose, but on removal, the holes were definitely larger than on the new ones.

I haven't tried driving yet with INTENSE crosswinds, but still any improvement is nice.
