I have a 1982 240D with over 325,000 miles. In the past few thousand miles, I have noticed that my drivers side front wheel is riding a bit roughly, and makes knocking sounds when I hit bumps. It sounds a lot worse than it feels, however.
Also, when quickly accelerating (yeah right) and heavy breaking, it makes a quick knocking sound from the same area of the car.
What could this be? Struts? Sway Bar? Bushings? Is this a common problem with the early 80s W123s?
Thanks in advance.
