well, I ordered some Bilstein Comforts, front sway bar bushings and should hopefully have them installed this week.
My front lower control arm bushings are looking really worse for wear (rubber is all cracked) so they'll have to get replaced too- I presume that's a pro-shop job from the look of things. Anyone know how long the labour should be on those? Maybe i should do balljoints too while they're at it...

Hopefully the new shocks and bushings will help restore the handling.

Then I'll only have to replace the front cover (leaking), replace the leaking rear main seal, replace the motor mounts, fix the driver's side dash speaker, cure the harsh-shifting transmission, fit euro headlights and i'll be good to go.
remind me, why did i buy an old mercedes again?!:-)
