Need help with front end clunk
this one has the dealer baffled. My 95 S420 has developed a loud "thunk" when descending very slowly down a 30 degree or so slope. We live on a steep hill and each morning when I descend down the hill practically at a creep I get the thunk and it feels like the car lunges forward slightly. Are there any suspension components that could wear and cause this type of problem? I do not believe the brakes have anything to do with it. This phenomenom occurs both when driving forward and backward down the hill.
