Re: W140 - front end shake - poss solution

I have had problems with 50mph front end / steering shake ever since I bought my '93 S500 18 months ago. I've had the wheels balanced sevaral times, ball joints, bushes etc with no effect. I have just replaced the brake rotors - and the shake has gone!

May be worth a try for anyone with the same problem.

The Rotors will cause a Vibration when the brakes are used
NOT when driving at highway speeds ...

Have the LOWER control arm bushings been replaced?
I Have Seen several complain of this and the Bushings were worn...Also Go to a High End Tire shop and have the Wheels Balanced ON THE CAR!...It Makes a Big Difference
