380SL Knocking Suspension

I have a knocking noise coming from the right rear of my SL when I make a right turn. I was told that it is the sway bar links. Any ideas?

Yes, sway bar links.

They are less than $10 per side and take like 15 minutes a side to replace.

i had to do both of them on my 380SL/

When they are broke, they appear to snap on. That is because the ball end stays on place and the round socket on the link pops off the ball.
