I was afraid of that... Do you have any idea what the problem might be? Is it the bearing? Can I replace it with a used component e.g., used hub, axle, and get through til next spring?
I really wanted to keep this one for a while. I don't think this one is worth replacing any of the suspension on. While I had the wheels off yesterday, I could wiggle the stabilizer bar where it was attached to the frame and could see it was coming apart there - there is a lot of rust underneath - I am afraid to chack the car up with the OE jack because those receptacles for the jack do not look very solid. I had a friend weld in a new floor as it was rotted and rusted through.
My goal is to keep running til spring '02 and then have saved $5k to get a near mint W123 Station Wagon.
Thanks for the reply does anyone have any ideas?
