W124 no longer fails bounce test :-)

got my bilsteins on-yay! my first major car repair ever done. I'd say the hardest bit was getting the old nuts off- they really didn't want to budge.
The old shocks were really shot. Funnily, seemed to scrape and generally injure myself more installing the second one- hmm... maybe 'cause i was getting hungry.
Anyway, car feels much happier now and although i car hear and feel every little bump in the road, I like it that way:-)


here's a photo of the link that has some movement in it- sway bar to the link the connects to the lower control arm. Bushings don't look too bad condition but i can move the link back and forth a small amount.
